For almost four decades, the Treasure Coast Model Railroad Club and Historical Society, Inc. have been bringing the fun and historical perspective of model railroading to the Treasure Coast. In 1975 three model railroaders in Vero Beach determined that there was interest in forming a Model Railroad Club. The Club thus had its beginning with this nucleus of interested hobbyists. The Treasure Coast Model Railroad Club declared itself as an actual organization on September 2, 1975. The railroad is modeled during the transition era between steam and diesel power of US railroads, which occurred between the 1940’s to the 1970’s. It is HO scale (1:87), utilizing a Digitrax DCC control system. Layout has two major freight yards, 2 city passenger stations, several industrial complexes, a freight harbor, steel mill and a coal mine. In addition, there are three cities, several towns, lakes, mountains and a desert. Many of the structures [More]

Plans for making tunnel portals available from http://www.modelbuildings.org/walls-bridges-tunnel-portals.html are suitable for HO scale, OO gauge, N scale, S and Z scales. Tunnels are a great device for making your layout look much larger than it really is. A train can disappear into a tunnel before almost magically reappearing out the other end. A tunnel can hide a train for a short period of time, allowing the viewer to imagine that it has left the area for a destination far away. From my experience, it’s usually best to make the tunnels during the early stages of constructing a layout. If you leave it until the scene is completed, it can be difficult to add a tunnel without disturbing the scenery you already have in place. Pre-made tunnels are available commercially, but in my opinion, the more realistic tunnels are ones you construct yourself. And, there are various ways to go about [More]

Over 7000 Diecast Model Cars Visit: https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=1074502&u=1801863&m=8689&urllink=&afftrack= Today I’m in Chicago on 12-15-17 and sharing the Garfield Clarendon Model Railroad Club that is celebrating their 70th year anniversary. I’m speaking with President of the Club Dan Gould as he shares details of the layout. Every area on the layout is complete. The engines, cars, scenery on the layout are of the highest quality, and many items are custom and hand built. This is just a wonderful experience to view. The Garfield-Clarenden Model RR Club Operations is located at 4501 N Clarendon Ave, Chicago, IL 60640 and for further details go to www.garfieldcentral.org Enjoy.

All programming in this video was done real time with a digitrax zephyr (DCS 50) system, and an Intermountain Railway Company ES44DC (Norfolk Southern ES40DC) This video covers: -CV’s what they are and what they do -Programming CV with Digitrax Zephyr -Resetting and recovering a locomotive to factory settings -Programming a 4 digit address to almost any locomotive Important things to remember: – Setting CV08 to 08 will reset all settings to the factory value – A locomotive that has been reset will respond to an address of 03 – Remove other locmotives from track before resetting in ops mode – There are many ways to program these things, this is just one of them – It is hard to ruin a decoder by programming it incorrectly, dont be afraid to try things (reset if and when needed) – MTH locomotives are different – You must select the locomotive prior [More]
A complete guide on animating a freight house door for model railroad scenery and operations, no programming knowledge needed! Use simple components to electronically open and close the HO scale door. I’ll not only show you how to animate the door but I’ll also show you how to construct, paint and weather the model to achieve a professional finish that will be the envy of your fellow modelers. The Scale Modellers Supply paint I’m using in the video was sent to me specifically to be included in the video, it’s a great paint that I’ve previously used and to get the chance to receive some free products that I highly recommend was a bonus. It’s perfect for airbrushing and any general purpose paint thinner for lacquer paints will work well for thinning the paint. For more information about The Scale Modellers Supply paints and other products check out their website [More]
This model train layout in HO scale was built by German modellers. There are three different landscapes covering the whole model railway layout. And, there are a lot of North American locomotives and trains, including Amtrak or CSX, etc. Please, enjoy watching this video and take a look at http://www.pilentum.de for more information and for many, many photos.

THE SUNDANCE CENTRAL RAILROAD – The Sundance was formed in January 2004 with the goal to create a more detailed and uniformly scened, large-scale traveling layout. This 1:20.3 scale modular model railroad consisting of forty modules for a layout size of 45 feet by 45 feet. The railroad consists of 400 feet of hand laid code 250 aluminum rails that are hand spiked with individual tie plates onto wood ties with a total of 16 turn-outs. The modular was built by a group of seven model train enthusiasts. This diverse group is made up of people who have a passion of early narrow gauge steam locomotives to modern day standard gauge diesels. The purpose for forming this modular group was to provide the public a realistic look at model railroading in a large-scale format. The modules are highly detailed from the scratch built supporting structures and buildings down to the [More]
In this update, I finally get around to painting and detailing the 00 Gauge Wills Viaduct that spans my river section. For too long it has been a grey primer colour and in this video I show you how I achieved the end result. Using a combination of painting and dry brushing. Here is the link to Galgorm Hall Model Railway Youtube Channel, Ive taken his advice from his video about making drainpipes for the viaduct, his easy to do method gives a very realistic effect so go and check out his video and his other videos as they are well worth a watch.

The Wills granite setts are a great addition to a goods yard or street but I don’t like the stark line you get when butting two of them up together. To try and get a more flowing look to the brickwork I’ve been blending them together with a few deft cuts. Here’s how I’ve done it.

In This video, I show using some hobby time silicon rubber and molding compound to make small parts for my railroad. Its a pretty short video but goes through the full scope to painting the formed parts. I wanted to elaborate on something that many have posted their thoughts on. It has to do with duplicating purchased products as seen in this video. I am making copies of some things I have purchased for my own use, not for resale, this is perfectly legal. As long as these items are not being sold to anyone else, there is not any laws on copyrights or other wise “stealing”. It is my thought that once I have purchased something, I can duplicate it for my own personal use. Furthermore, the simple truth is, many of these small parts are so entirely over priced in my opinion that it is in my own [More]
