Well, I've got the track all down and my first engine is on the rails and running around slicker than........lol I spent about 2 hours at a local train shop and the guy was great. He helped me out and answerd all my dumb questions. He gave me a good deal on the engine I really wanted, a K-Line Allegheny and a TMCC conrol system. We ran the engine around the shop layout while he showed me the in' s and out's of TMCC. I gotta say though that while the RailSounds are really cool and they sound great on this engine, after a while I just had to turn them off. I work in noise all day long so when I come home silence is golden,lol Now for the cars.
