Has anyone tried to thin down interior flat paint to match colors. With the number of model paint makers thinning out - sorry for the pun - I don't know where to go to find the colors I need.

Grandt Line NBW?
Posted by deemery On 07/16/2020 At 09:11:38 AM
I have a couple sprues of Grandt NBWs that I can't identify. They're quite small. The sprue has a round tag with 63 on it. Does anyone know the full part number/description for this?

thanks in advance!

Most interesting site, I shall, when my web site comes back on line to place a link to here.

Since 1983 I have sold many kits to many satified cusomters, however due to the tough economic times and the deluge of modeling equipment dumped onto the modeling market, most customers cannot make up their mind as what to buy and purchase nothing.

Remember when, Mr. Athearn and his company would announce a new car type about once each year. The new car would be manufactured in ten road names and priced within the means of common modelers.

Now everybody in the marketplace is scrambling to put out as much and more than the buying public can swallow. Note as well the great number of model railroad stores simply throwing in the towel and exiting the business as too highly competitive and or too much to keep in their modest inventory.

Worse, is the way companies do business, buying a lump trailer full of trains and once sold or out of parts to maintain them, they say to the customer, "That's Tough!"

My business too feels the crunch, and mattering on this year's sales figures will make our mind as to remaining in business or slipping from sight.

This is the second or third time I've visited the site. Its very good and I've enjoyed reading through many of the posts. Unfortunately I do NOT have high speed internet at home, so don't spend alot of time (1/2 of the week) on the net. When I am down near work I do.
I am building the Cascade Div GN prototype in HO scale between Skykomish and Appleyard (Wenatchee) Wa. Time stopped in the fall of 1953.
Thanks again for the site.

I need information on a Tortoise switch machine. The switch runs on DC current. Can I also attach AC current for the frog?

Greetings from Germany to the N-Gauge fans in U.S.:

Administrative Edit: the attached photo had to be deleted because of file size restrictions and complications with home page/Guestbook spacing.

Photo shows "modified" Arnold BR 95 in 1:160 which is surely 20 years old.
