    Here just may be the worlds smallest turntable. This is at the Phoenix, Arizona light rail maintenance facility. This allows them to retatch the trucks from the car and roll them off to the side for maintenenace. They had a dozen or so turntables like this in the building.

    A Z Scale decoder looks tiny in an HO locomotive, even a small one like an F7.

    Jeffrey, what brand of decoder is that? You are using the bachmann ez-dcc right?

    That's a Digitrax DZ125. I'm using a Bachmann EZ-Command with a 5 amp booster.

    Last night I turned woodland scenic's "2d" trees into "3d" trees and took some pics just before I painted them. One is just the trees and the other is with an HO scale wind turbine that I just built.

    Spankybird's locomotive

    Spanky:
    Locomotive 46200 is the Princess Royal, first of the Princess Royal class.
    Built in 1933 by the London Midland and Scottish, designed by Stanier. 4 cylinders. Weight 104 tons 10cwt. Capable of regular speeds over 100 mph. Originally numbered 6200, changed to 46200 by British Railways. Paint scheme is BR express passenger with early herald -- early 1950s?
    2 lamps on buffer beam signify express passenger train. Lamp on back of tender should be red lens; removed when train attached. 2 white disks were used by Southern railway to indicate route and should not be there. Would only go on tender if it were running backwards anyway.
    One of my favourite classes -- I have 2 in OO.
    (Competitors: 11 years after Flying Scotsman; 2 years before the A4 class.)

    I ran into it at a hobby shop while i was around. It is/was made by walthers although you can get two different variations from one of the german manufacturers.

    A member of the club kitbashed it from a BN SD70MAC. He is really into kitbashing engines, he has made several older Canadian Pacific engines.

    Tom...That collection is downright AWESOME...!!! When you got stuff like that on the rails, it doesn't matter if they're riding on 2 or 3 rails..!!! I love that pre-war AF steamer...!!

    Did anyone put a number on its worth..?? I presume a donation like that is tax deductible....
