Don't let that happen again!...........
Saying sorry? OMG. You are the man! Thanks for sharing the process. I have so many projects going and on the list that chopping up my Genesis will have to wait. I hope now to have mine chopped by spring. It will be exciting that I can run it together with my others for a change. Mine doesn't pull well alone. So I saved all these pics to copy the work. I probably will just hack the light sockets or cast something from another engine. I found a bashed up -8 in Amtrak. So I have a growing fleet for pulling passenger trains.
I'd like to also chop the cars to match the Accucraft and MTH 1/32 scale ones too. I only have 2 café ones.
I have 2 short Aristo Amtrak that I yanked off the layout. One has trucks that keep breaking for no good reason. Cheap plastic I guess? I'd like to make those into baggage cars. I wish G scale used the same diecast made trucks as O scale does. I like the KD and USA metal ones. If I could add more weight, steel wheels, and bearings to the plastic, I'd keep them. Sorry, now I'm rambling up on your post.
I'm sorry. I had to stop for meals and a shower once in a while, and oh yes, I had to drive from Tampa to Sarasota just to buy four 3/4 inch vinyl numbers for masking. Hopefully tomorrow I can paint the red and unmask everything. If you look at the picture of the blue black front of the cab, it appears to be real black, but actually in the light, it looks more grayish. Bob.
OK, sprayed the blue black on the nose and this is the next to last step of painting, except for some follow up painting. Next is the red and that is the final step. The white is on and masked, also the silver is on and masked, the black, and finally the red. Have to wait a couple of days for the black to dry, then the Veterans tribute decal. I received the laser printer, and we shall see how that works out. Last, the electronics and trucks. Bob.
Simon's issue with the horn is that a short whisle/horn button press isnt short enough for him. Your point is correct, if you want two short retorts you simply use the SFS skey function (SFS=Sound: Forward Sound)
The development of the wifi app is to keep up with the competition, keep up with the trends, offer new options and also be more attractive to all end users. MTH was looking at making updates to the remote and it became clear very quickly that smartphone/tablet software was the only logical approach to make any upgrade the remote interface. The wifi is an option not a requirement and offers the option to forego the traditional DCS remote and go wifi. Cost are basically the same. If a person doesn't want to have both then there is no additional cash outlay so it doesn't make it more expensive. On the board issues this has already been covered in another thread in great detail covering what was going on and won't get into it here in a thread about the DCS wifi control as this is not the place. I'm like you too Joe anytime I don't want sound I simply press the sound off button. It is the advanced control and sound with intuitive control that sold me on DCS and Protosound so for me the electronics were a key selling point.
