    Funny thing is I am talking both. Computers both controlling DCC decoders functions and panel pro allows your club to have a dispatcher with a working ctc panel.

    Here is a picture of an electric loco from 1919 on the site. If you look through the site you will also see an old ore car.

    I know it is not a good picture because it was scanned from a book, but this is the slag being dumped at night from the smelter!

    Right now I'm researching western short lines (specificly in northern Nevada and western Colorado) and also the Western Pacific.

    nkp174 Narrow Guage & Short Line Gazette has had several articles on Hawiian lines this last year.

    Nacho Man here is a pic of one of the Nevada Northern slag cars in Ely.

    I'd like to see...

    More pics & ideas of model railroads at night. Easy, affordable automatic dimmers and n scale street lights, etc. BTW, That HO scale layout in Germany that modeled las vegas is the most jaw dropping layout ever.

    What's the name of that layout - I'd like to see what I can find on the web about it; I remember seeing an article in MR a few years ago, and would like to know more about how the operating cars and trucks work - I assume it's the Faller magnetic wire in the streets system.
