Lol, I call it, "Intro to Photoshop" Tongue I think that this is the best design, I think many would agree:



 Or the tanker with a small face (also mentioned here).


    They may meet us the middle with a season 5 truck like this:

       


   I think any various from the three we have now would be a welcome introduction.

Oh, wow! I never knew what they were called, but they look just like the ones in the series. Any plans to paint them?

Coming along nicely, and great idea with the blog! Just a question, what is the Nissen Hut?

Yes, I second that. Dremel discs are way too rough. They sell cleaning pads for cheap and they are much safer, and more effective.

I once owned the set, and it came on analog power. Unless you converted it to DCC after purchase, there should be no issues with running it on analog.

Hey, you asked a lot of valid questions. I can give a little advice and that is to say stay away from peco. Aside from its' ridiculous cost, its not better than atlas flex. In fact, atlas code 83 flex track is better than the peco. Anyway, I would also stay away from DCC for now because it is a lot more complicated. I'll be back and edit this with more, as now I have to go!

Looks great, as always! By the way, what did you use for the brick wall, I mean what company makes that? Honestly, it looks awesome!

Sounds Great, Bachmann!

     Can't wait to get my hands on him!

Hello,

     Your plan should work as long as your straightaways are longer than the station.

        In my opinion, scrap the 18, get 2 22" circles. If thats too much for now, yes 22" is the ideal loop size, 24" being even better, however that may be a tad more expensive.

Remember though that HO Scale locos with eight drive wheels can't typically maneuver 18" radius curves, so that could eliminate Hiro as a choice unless Bachmann decides to break their trend and create locos with greater radii restrictions.

Plus Gordon and Henry and Spencer *In my opinion* The gordon set came with 22".... I am not starting anything, just relaying info.

Plus, Hiro sounds great!
