Re: weathering expensive models.

For me its all part of re-creating the real thing. Thus, all my stock, locos, coaches and wagons will be weathered to some degree. same for building and all other aspects of the layout. Its very rare to see a totally piece of rolling stock / loco on the real railway. I would say this is the most exp...

Re: Bachmann DYNAMIS SYSTEM

Having used both hornby efforts and the dynamis, its a no contest. The dynamis is an excellent controller, i sold my lenz 100 set as the Dynamis was better!

Its the best controller for sound chipped locos i have come across too.
