They can be soldered but will corrode that much faster.

There is an adapter available to connect the EZtrack directly to to the lifelike track without any modifications.

This thread has offended me and I am sure others who participate in this forum . There sure is a lot of pomposity in some of the comments . I am a railroad modeler who does it for my pleasure . .Because space limitations my whole layout is 18" curves. I have a 4-8-4 and it does not lurch around curves . I have a 2-10-2 and it also does not lurch around curves , also a Challenger that looks great around 18: curves Just as you have insulted me I will insult all you pompous rivet counters who dare set the standard by which you measure the rest of us

Where do you find clean air. The air in this world is so polluted from greed even the tops of the Himalayas are surrounded in polluted air.

Buy. Sound is terrific . The 2-8-0 are particularly good . If you really want impressive sound purchase a Challenger from BLI or a 4-8-4 .

In my opinion you should use EZtrack . The lifelike track can be adapted to the ez track and so can flextrack . You will find the EZtrack easy to install . My whole layout is EZtrack . I have adapted a lot of other track in the form of structures ,such as bridges etc.. No problem

I can't change what is . I would like to have a good night's sleep and a day without pain so that I could put more time into my layout. During the late 40's my family lived very close to a marshalling yard in the north end of Winnipeg . I could lie in my bed and listen to switchers moving the cars around . It was all steam in those days and there was not a better sound.. as a result I model mostly steam .

My layout is approx. 10' x 10' with a pop-up in the middle I have a main line and 3 feeder lines , 1 to a typical prairie town , 1 to a small mining area and one to a yard. It is all EZ track. I run almost all steam.

The CN mainline runs through Edmonton. Quite often a loaded train that runs through is pulled by 4 engines . The train is headed to the western coastline and Vancouver. To get through the mountains it needs four locos.

The No -Nails  has good holding power until it dries. You have 30 min working time . I use little dobs to hold small things in place. My back ground panels are all held it into place with No-Nails.

I find that No-Nails covers just about any gluing job I need to cover.

I don't think an American measure is as strong as a Canadian measure so we only use 1 oz.

A jigger is also a measurement of whiskey , usually 1 oz
