    1:32 MTH SD70ACe's Are Coming!!

    Larry, That's funny about being fast as I keep an eye on the TCA's You Tube channel! I already told my excellent dealer that I'm looking to order at least 3. If MTH makes all the heritage units out there then maybe more!!

    1:32 MTH SD70ACe's Are Coming!!

    Chuck you are faster than I. lol I just returned from York last night. I don't generally approach him , just say hi in passing . Most of the time a line is waiting to hit the poor guy up for one reason or another . This time I did and asked him Thursday about the next catalog. He advised me then New Tooling and The MTH RailKing One-Gauge SD70ACe are going to be made. Personally I was specific on the UP Spirit SD ACe O gauge engine as a example. He pointed that one out in his MTH display . It's going to be made. I'll be getting that one for sure. I'm really looking forward to the next catalog whenever it hits the market. Larry

    Bending AML Stainless track

    OK, I understand now. The screws have to be removed so that the track can bend. I understand now. The track that I am buying is not designed that way, it is flex track from the git go. Thank you, Bob.

    Bending AML Stainless track

    Bob, I'm sure they're referring to the tiny screws that hold the ties in place that Aristo-Craft uses. The AML flex-track that I've had over the years didn't have any screws holding the ties in place. Like this piece of Aristo curve track... Also if using Aristo straight ties or RLD ties need to cut like every other web so can bend a curve... RLD ties...

    OK, what do you mean by the "screws on the back"? The track that I am buying require that the ties be assembled to the rails. Would it be better since the ties are not installed, to bend the rails separately before installing the ties? Bob.

    New to sound

    HI, you could look into to phoenix sound you would have plenty of room . call phoenix sound and ask Jim or John. i have installed many of their systems and nobody has ever been disapointed. They are good guys at phoenix sound systems and are fairly priced, with excellent sounds and warranty , and they can handle all questions. good luck

    Bending AML Stainless track

    Hi, I have bent all the different track types SS,BRass ,AL. they all have 1 thing in common the screws on the back have to be removed to get good even bends and i have done the bending on several layouts with multiple tack lengths, with them clamped together. i used the aristo bender and it was a breeze. we actually did 1 layout in one day the entire main line over 500 feet. just make sure your clamps have room to move and the ties do not bind up . there are plastic tie joiners on the back side you must cut to relieve the pressure they will apply during bending. good luck and happy running.
  21. Selling my Aristo Pacific and Vandy tender to finish my move to 1/32nd scale. Pacific has the new drive and metal rods. I put in a MTH smoke unit($100) and it smokes real good. Bit dusty but runs great. Set up for battery power, does have the switch to track power, I've never used it. Boiler door seems a bit loose. Tender has a My Loco Sound steam unit in it and sounds fine, to me anyway. Stan did the decals for it. Number on the Pacific is that of one that was noted to be a good runner in Nebraska.. Both are in original boxes and packed in a large box together. Sorta be a big heavy box, actual shipping will be charged. $550 for the two.

    What glue disolves polycarbonate to weld it?

    Yes earlier I was tempted by those Hyde out models diesels but finally I kept them as straight electrics because of all the things that can attack the paint and even the plastic that are in those fuels. A good friend of mine went battery electric with a B unit hauling the batteries speed controle and radio control from Peter Spoerer, for the same reason although he actually baught the Hyde out mountain diesel kit! Sorryfor the late answer, but I was away for a few weeks.
