    LGB Christmas Train Smoke?

    Thank you. I didn't want to mess something up. The manual doesn't even tell about the switch. I happened to see there was a switch on a YouTube video about the train.

    Jerry, looking good. If I may offer something that I do when splicing two flat surfaces: I adhere gauze, like used in bandages, along the seam for additional strength. LiG.

    LGB Christmas Train Smoke?

    Based on how I have seen the switch work on other LGB engines and in other LGB documentation: First position: (Lights=OFF, Smoke=OFF, Motors=OFF) Second position: (Lights=ON, Smoke=ON, Motors=OFF) Third position: (Lights=ON, Smoke=ON, Motors=ON)
  6. I purchased the LGB 72304 Christmas starter set recently. The user manual said nothing about the smoke generator operation (In fact, the user manual lacks a lot to be desired). I can see the smoke generator down in the smoke stack, and a bottle of smoke fluid came with it. There is a three position switch inside the engine cab. I turn to middle, and lights come on, but train won't move. Switch to far right, third position and train will run. I suppose that it will only smoke when running in third switch position? Thanks from a newbie.

    Splice didn't come out too bad, have to splice the roof also. Having fun with this.

    ARISTOCRAFT FA-2 MKT

    Actually the model made by Aristo-craft was an FA-1 - the model number was 22017. It had the road number of 2017. In the Aristo database photo there does not appear to be the connectors for battery car operation which should mean it was a pre 2005 model.

    Current requirements.

    Hi, It's been quite a while since I visited... I have been detailing my progress on the Dead Rails/Free Rails site as my efforts are primarily on the deadrail aspect of the hobby. For those interested I have 3 threads going there: My control car/battery car design/build project: http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=8145&forum_id=45 My track design/build project: http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=8181&forum_id=52 A home brew signals, switch control, RFID project: http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=8252&forum_id=54 As winter around here shuts down outside play, current activity is on design of G-scale signal lights with 3-watt LEDs, switch control with RC servos, and RFID identification of rolling stock. I went with the 3-watt LEDs (those suckers are BRIGHT) as I can clearly see them from several hundred feet, important with the size of my setup. Everything is based around arduino clones for computer control. As with my engines, I am using WiFi for the data link. I hope to make them LCC compatible in the long run. Steve

    dble crossover

    It's been so long it's hard to remember but I believe I used a straight piece that was custom bent just a bit. That is another #6 at the top right of the photo. My goal in that entire area was to make all curves and bends through the turnouts as gradual as possible because I planned to run very long trains through them.

    dble crossover

    that's a neat approach , is that a modified 20 ' curve between mainline #6's ,and is that a wye or another #6 ( top right back of photo) really need to watch more of your youtube on layout don't think I caught this thanks again
  15. Rayman4449

    dble crossover

    19.5 degree is what I think you are going to want to use. This is the closest I have come to doing what you are talking about with a #6 switch leading into a 19.5 degree crossover. At least this gives some visual representation of the angles.

    dble crossover

    hello, any body out there know the degree x-over needed between 4 # 6 switches I am in process of buying switches . I believe I have seen 19.5 degree 22.5 degree and 30 degree x-overs of course not all are easy to come by see a few 30's no 22.5's and one 19.5 on ebay thanks for any and all help and have a very merry christmas

    MTH 2019 One Gauge Catalog

    The VO1000 is such great scale like model that covers different periods. I am not sure why this diesel never sold well.

    MTH 2019 One Gauge Catalog

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and predict the new catalog will have the SD70ACe and a updated Hudson with all metal drivers and smoking whistle. I hope MTH also shows some F7 ABA units decorated for the Union Pacific but that maybe a bit of a stretch as Mike Wolf stated last Fall that he was planning only 1 diesel and 1 steam engine per year. VO1000's would be nice too!!

    Indoor F scale layout finally started

    Looks like you have a good plan there, lot of work, but all layouts are. Have fun!

    Print was done by Jason Hatala, you can contact him through his web site https://clutchform.com Nice guy. I'm sure he can adjust the print to your needs. He has several other products for trains on his web page. Different noses and detail parts.

    Live Steam Salvage Tug Kit

    Sean, you are absolutely right, should be a safety rail there also. Will have to fabricate stanchions as I used all that came with the kit for the rails in the procedure. Another project. YES. To the hobby shop for brass rod!! LiG

    Yeah I like the warbonnett. I also like the UP flag CSX and Seaboard and Atlantic coast line. My father worked for the ACL and SCL.. my father in law started with the Acl in the 50s and retired after an auto rack fell on his crew van at yeoman in Tampa in 1997. I've modeled since I was 6 when my dad would take me with him to work in Lakeland fl. I saw the Acl passenger trains. I still have the first athearn gp35 I bought in 1975 at Chester Holley trains in Tampa. I modeled Ho for years then switched to O scale in 2012 and became an Mth dealer and service ctr. In 2017 I could not stand seeing the G guage at the shows plus I never liked 3 rail.. the G scale to me is just big Ho which I did so long. I also like the more realistic non toy look of G. Although mth premiere is pretty good. My layout is indoors and is 19 x 45 feet. Presently looking for a G steam with Dcs.
