Junior,

Thank you for those pictures. This is interesting. I am learning quite a bit from this. I can see that using the spud solves a lot of problem in terms of building a railtruck. Have you DCC'ed a spud. Can those be DCC'ed?

Thanks,

Arthur

Arthur,
Incase Junior has not tried, I have one and yes you can dcc them, you just can't put the decoder inside it ;-).
At some point I will figure out what I will use mine for and post pics of the DCC install. I have been thinking of powering a 4 wheel flat car with it and use the flat to push around different unpowered rail inspection cars.

Do a search on "Tenshodo spud" and you will find some interesting info:

Thnaks Guys.

Larry, you are right!
I haven't installed any DCC equipment on each locomotive.

I'll upload pictures of switcher No. 19.
Prototype is Pacific Electric's shop switcher No. 00196.
I hope you enjoy.

Junior,

Thanks for sharing the tutorial with us.
Are the flats (buildings) your work?

Junior, the models are excellent, and your photo-tutorials show very clearly what you did and what others can do. This is great modelling and great pedagogy.

Thanks Arthur and Fred.

I have to answer the question of Tommatthews.
He wrote: Are the flats (buildings) your work?

Yes.
That photo was taken on one of two modules.
I proposed to build modular traction layout.
But, only two completed.
Following photos show the modules.
Most buildings were scratch-built.
DESIGN-TECH Murphy's General store (far right, white one) is the only one stucture that I bought.

Junior,
You are doing wonderful modeling in small spaces. I really like the mine battery loco, I have been looking for one for my micro.
Very nice greeting card as well, happy holidays
