I've emailed bachmann about the Seacow hand wheel. Hopefully they'll send me a replacement.

A few pics of some of the locos and the first tow boards of the new Layout.
Just to keep updates coming. The tarck is not in the plan it will follow but is in the only small line I can run without more insulating fishplates and wires for DCC. This is also run on DC for now enjoy.

They're used for reballasting track. As far as I know the wheels on the ends are to allow ballast to be released through the side chutes.

No problem PT, when I first heard of it I'm sure I said wtf!

Correct there Metro, allows the opening of the side chutes by the PW men.
