Welcome aboard Lester! West Virginia has some beautiful scenery and some great rail history.

Welcome aboard, Scott and Les. Thanks for introducing yourselves.

Les, that's a nice looking engine terminal. How about posting some more pictures of your layout?

Is there an appropriate place to post pictures? Also is there a way that I can be notified of new posts in a topic I am in?

Les, here is some answers and information that might be helpful.

All the info on how to post pictures directly from your computer to the Forum without using a third-party picture hosting site can be found at this link: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27749

Where you decide to post your photos depends for the most part on what you are trying to share. For instance, if you want to share progress photos while building a kit, you might post those in the Mike Chambers' Craftsman's Corner. It it is a scratch build, you might want to post in in the Startin' From Scratch sub-Forum. If you want to document your layout, you could do it in one of the Scale-Specific Sub-Forums (Large Scale, Small Scale, Mid-Scale, HOn30/HOn3, Sn3, On30, etc.) or in the Model Railroad Construction sub-Forum. You have many choices.

Finally, if you want to follow a specific thread, look at the bottome of the page on any page in that thread. You will see a row of 'tabs' that you can click on. The fourth from the left is the one you want. It says "Subscribe to this Topic". That will send you an e-mail notice whenever there is activity in the thread.

I hope that this helps.

Welcome to all of our newest members.

Lester, unfortunately you won't be able to upload any pictures directly to the forum as things stand right now.
Your user name has a period in it.
When posting pictures, the pictures name as well as your user name can only contain numbers and letters.
If you'd like me or one of the other Admins to remove the period from your name please let us know.
You can however still link to photos in your photobucket account as you've already done but we here have always encouraged members to upload directly to the forum.


As you think, so will you be.

Hello everyone,

My name is Ted Glass.

I'm a member of the Northern California Narrow Gaugers, modeling in On30. I live in El Dorado County, right next to the Diamond & Caldor Ry. I'm currently modeling a small mine module, and hoping to hook up a dump mechanism to demonstrate mine dump cars to the kiddies at our train shows. Don't know who gets a bigger kick out of seeing the cars dump, the small kids, or the "big kids". Right now I have a crude lever mechanism of wire, like a teeter-todder, it works, but I have to operate it from the front. I hope to have some sort of remote with spring, or??? Anyone with an idea I could use?

Thanks,

GomezTed

Hi Ted, welcome.
We have a very active On30 forum so you should find lots of things of interest and I hope you join in and show what you're working on too.
Also, stop into the On30 Lounge and join us for a coffee or drink of your choice.

Jeff (Coaltrain) has some self dumping cars on his layout.
About a third of the way down on this page he posted a video of it: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=31112&whichpage=26
Go back a few more pages and I think he posted pictures of what he did.


As you think, so will you be.

Thanks, Rick.

I've been reading posts here for as long as I've been into On30! J_COOP is a good friend & I finally want to contribute here what I can. There is evidence of some very impressive modeling here. I'll try to get my current dump cars & mine posted on YouTube, and paste a link at an appropriate place and time.

Thanks again!

Yes go ahead and remove the period. I did try to insert the file but couldn't so I tried the photobucket way and it worked.

Les, I removed the period after your middle initial. You should be fine now.

Greetings! Long time lurker, first time poster. As my screen name says, I'm Dave and I'm from Arizona. I've been an active model railroader for over 30 years, working in N, HO and now On30. I'm a died-in-the-wool, unrepentant freelancer currently well into my second On30 layout, the Thunder Mesa Mining Co. I guess you'd call it a "mini layout" since it is only 3'x6'. The focus is on spectacular scenery in a southwestern setting. The layout has it's own website which you can view here: http://thundermesaminingco.blogspot.com/

Looking forward to learning and sharing here. Thanks for having me.


Dave
