Central Pasco & Gulf Railroad Model This is a video I made of the Central Pasco & Gulf railroad model trains you can ride. It is open to the public every second Saturday of the month from 10:00 am. till 3:00 pm. For a small donation of a dollar you can ride this 8500 feet of track through the wilderness of Crewe’s Lake Park in Brooksville Florida in Pasco County. It is the largest model railroad I have ever seen. They also take reservations for birthday parties at the park which includes train rides. This is one of a kind and a must see and ride railroad.

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]

Basic DCC demonstration with MRC Prodigy Advance. In UK it is by Gauge Master. In this video I show how to use functions, Throttle and other modes, as Yard Mode and reading decoders in programming track. Some decoders may require a programming booster to work this feature. The main features of Prodigy Advance is the 3,5 Amp power supply, support functions F0-F28, control accessories and many other features.   Recommended ReadingHow to Convert a DC lococomotive to DCC Made EasyFitting DCC chips to DCC ready modelsDCC sounds N scale Kato Amtrak SuperlinerMy First DCC Model Railway – Trains Running on my LayoutHow to install DCC and LEDs into a Proto 2000 Locomotive (part 1)Opening the A4 DCC Sound ‘Sparrowhawk’ by HornbyDC to DCC in under 10 mins!DCC Introduction VideoFitting DCC Decoders to Bachmann Derby Lightweight DMU Part 1 of 2Upgrading LokSound DCC Decoders to Full ThrottleHelpful Tips -Installing DCC decoders [More]

About a year or so ago I stated in one of my video’s that I would do a how to video about installing DCC decoders in to HO locomotives. Well finally an opportunity presented itself that allowed me to make a video on 1/24/13. Since I had to by a dual mode DCC decoder for my recently purchase Athearn RTR Amtrak P42 #108 I had a chance to make the video. In this video I go into great detail as to how to installed DCC decoders in DCC ready locomotives which have the 8 or 9 pin plugs in them from the factory. This enables the modeler to chose a decoder brand of his or her choice for the model and its takes minutes to install them. Then I talk about installing decoders in non DCC ready engines, like Atheran blue boxes, older Bowser engines and a few others. These [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]
