Fine:N or finescale 160. Anybody doing it?

Off the wall question here. Does anyone know of anybody in North America working in finescale N or fine:N (not proto 160, nobody is doing that...) Just curious if anyone has tried out the code 50 wheelsets and made some switches to match. Most of what I can find are the European 2mm guys but nothing...

Re: New Mt Clemens Sub Signals

As of today there are crews working in Mt. Clemens just east Hubbard Street at the end of the siding there (about where you would place a signal mast for the siding). There's also the first part of an antenna mast next to the track dept. building by the team track that should be vertical by the end ...

Re: Unknown City Skyline and RR Bridge

I follow Kirk Tuck's blog. He's a working photographer in Austin and the scenes seemed like some of his 'around town' pics on his site. (visualsciencelab.blogspot.com) I bet this post was about the crew shooting the commercial https://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/2016/04/i-went-out-for-walk-today-a...

Re: Unknown City Skyline and RR Bridge

Austin, Texas. The Lamar street pedestrian bridge in front
with the Union Pacific across the Colorado River. I believe
it's a former MoPac line.

Re: Railroadfan.com 2015 2nd Meet - Fostoria/Deshler 9/12-9/

Booked off the store for the weekend. I think I'll try getting down to Deshler
Friday night. Hopefully I'll get all the way there instead of 7/8ths of the way
and then crashing again. :P

Re: Converting from O to HO

Divide all dimensions by 1.81, except aisles, leave those the same size :-p. BUT, make sure the O scale plan isn't intended for 3-rail O. Then the curves will probably be to tight for HO. That O-27 curve would end up as a 7.5" radius. And if the plan is Richard Cooke's 11 x 15 you're better off star...

Guess who is now on Facebook?

Me. Reactivated my account after 3 years. It's stunning just
how fast the trailer-park side of my family found me...

Frankly I'm a little scared.
