    Website - Outage / Issues

    Website has been having some issues last couple of days but believe we now have it sorted out and should hopefully not happen again in the future due to this root cause.

    Ben...That is awesome thanks for sharing!! Magnificent layout and train! Too bad about the redwood trees though.

    MTH GS-4 Daylight video and photos

    Set looks beautiful Ben! I really like the colors on the Accucraft passenger cars. That is the color I have more felt all daylight models should be painted with but the new MTH colors are much better than the original 2006 version of the engine. Layout looks beautiful as well

    My backyard layout by Robert Brown

    All turnouts are finished and now I only have regular track to lay, won't be long now, this is going fast now. Bob.
  6. Last year I had three large redwood trees removed (which were breaking the pool deck), and had to remove some track to make room for the crews. It took over a year to rebuild the roadbed (making some changes) and relay the track. It might have taken even longer, but once my new 2017/2019 MTH GS-4 arrived in July my motivation increased dramatically! I finally got the yard looking decent again--albeit with some under construction areas still--and then we've recently had some nice cloudy mornings, perfect for videos and photos! So here it is, pulling my Accucraft passenger cars that I bought 3-1/2 years ago (and preordered at least 2 years before that!), so it's taken awhile to get this train put together! But the wait was worth it. With the improved colors on the locomotive, the locomotive and cars match up pretty well. It's not perfect, but good enough!

    Sean, thank you. I would love to to a couple of sharks, if I knew where I could get 1-A-1 power trucks for it, I'm partial to the PRR. LiG

    Made the steps for the Motorman's door. As you can see I shortened the journal boxes for additional clearance. The freight door has a single step, easier.

    Sean, thank you. Been all over looking for a darker Maroon but unsuccessful so far. I did give it a coat of dull coat to knock down the gloss, looks a little better. Jerry, so far only painted the interior and the seats that can be seen from windows, no plans so far. I did find a motor man in a box of 1: 29 people. LiG
  16. Yes its pretty rare to see some build. Rob loves it also see some being build, These Models are from a second run Ron made for me, he still got 2 for himself
  17. Nice to see some built. I think Rob might have a kit or two left, but not sure.

    Finished the other roof, painted it low gloss engine enamel black. I think the maroon needs to be darker. Now to more detail. LiG

    MTH DCS Remote

    No changes in wireless range from remote to TIU (which is the only signal related impact there could be with the remote). I'm with you I like both the app and the remote and like the remote for the same reasons.

    Chuck, thank you, will have to check that out also. LiG

    MTH DCS Remote

    Ok. So no signal improvements or such. Even though I do like the phone app I can’t see myself totally abandoning the remote. With the remote you can control things like speed with out having to look at it. Besides it’s hard to see a phone display in the sun.

    Bachman Thomas W/DCC ??? (#91421)

    I will respond to what I can answer: The DCS Remote Commander (50-1033) will only trigger Whistle, Bell, Speed control etc on an engine equipped with MTH DCS Protosound 2 or 3. It will not do that on an engine that is DCC only or DC analog. My installs of the PS3 in the Thomas engines do now retain the eye movements.
