The distance from edge of layout to the outside track is at least 3 1/2". It also helps that the floor on the second floor layout is regular wall to wall carpet.

               Did you mean Baltimore or actually Philadelphia PA?

Not sure but I was able to open both links with no problems.

          I am sorry to here about the report on your illness. I hope you do not give up and try what you can to beat it. As I have not been on the forum as long as you, I just want to say I have enjoyed your layout and posts as they have given me many ideas and suggestions for mine. God Bless you  and I hope for the best. Jim

I looked up your plan in the book and put it into my anyrail  program and it does not hang off the edge. Maybe check your part numbers.

You said that you used EZ Track for your layout. Is that the gray roadbed with nickel silver rails? That has to be the best ballasting of that type of track that I have ever seen. I wish mine looked like that. Possibly some time can you post how you achieved that look? Again great job.

Hello.  I am reading your post about extending your layout. Are you just running 1 train on the oval ? If so  by adding a few separate feeds to the track with the longer straights should suffice as 15 feet is not that long and would not need isolated blocks even if you are using DCC. i would also recommend that you take off your Email address from your screen name.

If you are using the NS HO turnouts on your layout the Bachmann item 44598 is the correct extension cable. If using as an extra extension the 3 spade male end will fit into the female end . It can be a little tight to insert but I use a small pair of needle nose pliers to make the two connections squeeze tight together.

It is the whole engine not just the shell.
10  Discussion Boards / HO / Ho K4 Spectrum on: October 30, 2018, 02:14:46 PM
This is my last K4 that I had running. It is a HO non DCC Spectrum cab numbered 5475. It will move forward and reverse with no problem but the shell moves side to side. I can not see any any problems with the side rods moving wrong. Any help would be appreciated .

Is it wearing off from handling or just wearing off without being touched?

Not sure of your circumstances but just to let you know when  I had to send a HO engine back for repair and there was an issue that they could not repair or replace it with the same item they offered me a similar item but not in the same road name and not the same type of engine. I was happy to get a engine back that has worked great for a year and I think it only cost $35 for the shipping. I think the time span was only about 2 weeks. Maybe you should call the service department and try to work out the problem.

Thank you Hunt. I missed that completely.

Does Bachmann offer replacement turnout switches for the HO EZ Track  #5 turnouts? Looked online in the parts store and could not find them.
15  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Installing buildings on: February 08, 2018, 02:41:44 PM
I am getting ready to install some Walthers buildings on my layout. The layout is HO using Bachmann EZ track on a 2" foam base. I am thinking that I should shim the bases up some to compensate for the EZ track height. What material would you suggest and how high off the foam base? Thanks in advance.
