Thanks Rob,

Bill, there are a set of couplers coming that will work for trains used for the war between the states.

I have been noodling if I could run the trains though a shell torn town. I was given two large resin brick building sides, I chopped one in half and started to go at it with some sharp objects and score and snap. Not sure where this project will go. I do have video showing the trains ran beside these destroyed buildings.



Making 50,000 blown up bricks should be fun if I move forward.

Any advice is welcome.

Larry, good start on the blown up buildings.
Definitely needed for a war time scene.
I found these O scale bricks on line.
Not 50,000, but is a start. Packs of 300 or 1200, brown, red or orange, Only need them on top of rubble piles, and scattered around.

Larry, here's another company that specializes in "debris" and bricks. Many scales.

I have purchased their product from this US dealer and it is excellent.

Thanks for the link Carl.

Thanks for visiting Jerry.

There has been a bunch of activity lately. Some of it top secret still.

I can release progress on building up a fleet of 20 HP Simplex Petrol Engines. These were the most numerous Petrol Engines sent to France. Also dare I say the most difficult to model due to the small size.

I have one running DCC with a Keep Alive. They use a Tenshodo 24.5 spud drive which are hard to source. I have the three needed drives on order from the UK even though the Drives are of Japanese origin.

As a side note I also figures out how to hard wire a keep alive to a TCS M1 decoder which is my critter decoder of choice. I can now add keep alives to my entire critter fleet.

A bunch of new things in recent days. The Kerr Stuart is rather homely, isnít it? Gotta love it.

Thanks all.
Here is the DC version of the Simplex being broken in. It takes a few hours of run time to smooth them out.
