I have that same train station that you have the Amtrak train running Through Obviously the platform is not long enough do you intend to expand it?

Make sure they have knuckle couplers. If you are going to replace them consider using metal Kadee couplers.  No sense in having to do it more than once.

I found many of my more vintage buildings on ebay.

Hi Wiley:

First great layout progress enjoying this thread!

Second do you have any experience with the TYCO Piggyback unloader I am wondering if it can be adapted for use with more modern containers and what it's footprint is?

This thread has gotten a bit off topic so I will say this:

I like the WGH when it comes to Edison NJ about every two years. The manufacturers show off there latest wares and I get to see touch feel them and ask questions.

Then I can shop the vendors for the best deals.  It's a bit classier than the average Greenberg Show Morr trains less toys Wife hates it so I go alone.

I saw the prototype veterans scheme in Chicago Union Station.  I have the Athearn PS 64 veterans scheme that Amtrak sold as a limited edition.  Unfortunately I did not have time to photograph the prototype.

This ACS 64 will go with the Athearn version that has never been taken out of the box.

Question I heard that you can't run ez app trains at the same time? True?

I thought some were also made at the Amherst show and/or the WGH tour.

As far as I know there is no limit as long as you use auto reversing track the question is can you add additional feeders along the way which I am not sure.

I will let you know as I am planning to use it for a subway display soon.

I want one in veterans paint scheme to go with my display next to the Amtrak Athearn P64

The sad truth is that this is the Lionel effect.  Unlike classic toy trains like Lionel Most HO has little collector value.  Enjoy the set with your child.

You might have difficulty removing the metal joiner from the EZ track.  If so I would just do one of two things. 

Clip off the metal joiner and put a tiny piece of plastic in between the roadbed sections to maintain the gap. Or

Cut the gap in the rail somewhere other than a joint with a dremel tool or maybe track cutters.

Last year I sent 2 locomotives in for repair and they came back in about 2 weeks.  At this time of the year it might be longer as there is a post Christmas rush season,

This thread has been useful to me as I plan on using my reversing track not for a trolley but for a Walthers subway set that will travel back anf forth on a separate track over my layout.

If you are talking about the white Bachmann reefers I don’t thnk it really matters They all seem to be number 724 which I gently sanded off with a small sanding stick and then printed new numbers cut them out pasted them in place and sealed the car with dullcote Once weathered ite good enough for me.
