I recently read about BlueRail Trains and their new control system for trains, but not the sort of control system I’m used to seeing. Not DCC, but one that can be run right alongside DCC and doesn’t need a lot of hardware in the middle. A system that looks incredibly elegant to me that requires […]

Joel Bragdon | Bragdon Rock Molds

One of my favorite go-to products when building a new scene are Bragdon rock molds. Made from high-grade latex, in my opinion these are some of the finest molds available for modeling real rocks because they’re molds from real rocks! Incredibly versatile too as they work well in all scales. Below you can see casts […]

For someone brand new to or just curious about On30, what do you feel are On30’s biggest strengths, its main appeal? The main appeal is that it allows someone with an interest in narrow gauge to dip their toe in the water and see if it is for them, without a huge commitment of time […]

Mark Fielder’s Nn3 Pizza Layout

Several years ago, I saw a small model train layout on an Nn3 website that just clicked for me; as soon as I saw this layout, I knew I’d want a similar layout for myself someday. The layout is called The Pizza and the builder’s name is Mark Fielder from the UK. I’ve built many […]

As a result of the still recent (March 2013) acquisition of Marklin by the Simba Dickie Group, based in Fürth-Stadeln, Germany, many Marklin Z enthusiasts here in the US have been wondering what this means for the future of Marklin in Z scale.
