  1. I got the decals from Circus City decals. They were thicker than what I got in the past from others. That made them much easier to work with!
  2. I did finally acquire decals for an older build
  3. Wow those cars look great! I love the finish too. Great work here. I follow as much as I can. I have made small molds with varying success. It's an investment I think to make molds as big as you are making. I'm always tight on cash. So I have to find ways to make stuff cheap. The molds that you make, probably pay for them self fast when creating multiple cars or engines. I have so much stuff, that I don't have room for more. I wished we had moved into a bigger property. I am blessed with what I already have. So I just dabble in smaller ways now. I had dreams of several different long trains built like an Army train for example.
  4. Well, definitely test it again after sitting. The problem is a classic one that the DC motor probably smoked itself and the damage won't go away now. Just like the real thing, a AC motor can be stalled without damage. A DC motor fries itself if worked too hard. Heat is a major enemy too. What exact motor did you use? The stock MTH Hudson motor?
  5. Beautiful work Sir! I always follow your builds. Just sometimes lurking in the shadows.
  6. I contacted Ray, who I purchased it from. There was no better part available or anything else he could do. I moved forward. It works better now than before. So what did I break? The whistle smoke tube was partially blocked. It smokes better out of the fill hole than the actual whistle. looks like you win! You're a real winner!
  7. The reason I even looked at the smoke tube is because it was partially blocked. Not because I was bored or wished to take my brand new BB apart for kicks. If I feel that a reply is out of order, I do not make the reply. There are many times I've held back from your posts. I can only suggest you relook at the situation. When I pay 1500 for an engine, I expect it to be right. I have learned to deal with all types of problems and people.
  8. Patience? Who's got patience? I wanna run trains! (hopefully the stripes will cover some?)
  9. Here's a post about the Lionel Vision line Niagara. Half way down the page are more videos from the OP of the engine running on the track with the smoking whistle. Notice how much air (smoke) moves when the whistle blows. https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/topic/a-look-inside-the-new-vl-niagara?page=1 I hope there's a way to tune the whistle smoke on the MTH BB. It comes out of the fill hole when left open so much stronger than out of the actual whistle (hole). I may try to make my own tube to connect the smoke unit to the whistle.
  10. I did a quick spray of one side of my F40PH. It looked good so I thought I'd hurry and spray the other side before it cured fully. Big mistake. It ran, fish-eyed, and got spray all over the black when the paper towel moved, and even thru the tape?
  11. Thank you for sharing this. Seems like it's a great puller.
  12. I really hope so. It would be great to get his attention back towards new one gauge releases. I'd be good with any new modern diesel at this point.
  13. There was the posted video from the York meet where he states that he has drawings and a prototype for a new G scale diesel engine.
