Re: Picnic Creek - An US N gauge train set

Thanks, Brammie! The layout at night (or very early morning anyway). Just a phone photo, so it looks a lot brighter than it actually is. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/57XQb7MgW9h9qytLrFLBB2kZzSYK-7hrJWDvhtZN4JbUNGWay6yDLkgbFlzc5doAI6HFWtM6UvSYLH3tZODXfKlnE_BTCiUhQ3084wrRjhMo6BcQ54IGPfxjDdIwsOWiH...

Fimo really only sets in the oven.

One shortcoming of the Peco turntable is the method of carrying power to the rails. This is a DC era design so there is power interruption to effect polarity change. In my experience this didn't matter since the locomotive does not need to move while the turntable is turning. It would only be notic...
