  1. I've been bending on the garage floor so far to get a feel for it. I will go back to constructing the road bed, then laying track. The track bender is got it a few years back. Unfortunately the creator past away and is no longer being made.
  2. Ben, when I put 2 sections together it didn't want to bend at the joiners. Not really sure why not. Also it doesn't have to be to be exactly the same all the way thru the curve.
  3. We have 1 end of the layout that will have a 18 to 19 foot curve. The other curves will Much more gradual.
  4. Started our layout. AML stainless track & Norms bender. Not as easy as I hoped. Knob on bender keeps walking out. I think we are doing it properly. Finally went to store and added a stronger collar to hold slide instead of the knob. So far so good. Bending Having trouble with 2 tracks together. Easier one at a time
  5. So Ray. Let me ask you for clarity. If a One Gauge PS2 engine is run on DCS - AC current it will not run away ?
  6. So what exactly does this mean ? You have to purchase the new TIU to use the premium DCS app ?
  7. How about using these toys to help build your layout
  8. Ray, Did you interview Rich? Who interviewed him? Any other details of interview?
  9. Nice. Did MTH post that info anywhere. Or was is just sent to dealers ?
  10. My son got a catalog from MTHRRC membership. I went to link Raymond just posted and received one in the mail.
  11. Very nice. I like the small size with voltage and current combined.
  12. Just received a printed copy of the 2017 catalogue. There's always something nice about flipping thru a printed catalog. Thanks MTH, well done !
  13. The Daylight looks great. One thing about MTH that puzzles me. I have attended a few larger shows where MTH was also present and they had no one gauge items displayed. When I asked they would say they didn't have enough room, it was to much trouble because they only had a small display at that particular show. They showed the One Gauge Bigboy and now Daylight in Germany. Do they show it in the U.S. ? I've never see any.
  14. They have all the molds. All that's different is the paint scheme.
  15. Does anyone know if H & R trains got their stainless track in stock yet ?
