We made it through the Winter shows finishing at the Fine Scale
Model Railroaders Expo in Scranton, Pennsylvania. A tip of the conductor’s cap
to Jimmy, Doug, Brian and the whole sponsoring group for putting on a fine weekend.
Clinic rooms were filled to the max. Volumes of information and techniques were
exchanged. All the vendors were very busy. We have a few photos of the show on
our Facebook page.
Next shows up are
Timonium, MD; then the Mid Hudson On30 Meet
and, finally, the MANGG
Module Meet before we take a short Summer Break. Don’t forget the
Narrow Gauge Convention in
Houston, TX September 2 thru 5.
Last day for the Blackstone reefer pre ordering is April 15th …
and there’s still a little time left for the K-28 / K-36 pre orders.
We now have restocked our TCS WOW Steam and Diesel Sound stock.
Still coming is the 121 Diesel sound board that fits the Motherboards. The Trainspeed
1 and 4 speedometers are also back in stock. Demand for micro connectors has been
strong so we’ll increase our stock of these both in the black and colored wire
types (in 2,4 and 6 conductor).
The new HOn3 Annual has arrived while the new On30 issue is going
to the printer and will be here shortly.
I’ve been finding people are somewhat confused about the two types
of NCE Cab06 throttle types that are for sale. Both have the LED display and can
store up to 6 recall items. Both are available in tethered or wireless versions.
- The Cab 06 uses a digital encoder for speed control.
- The Cab 06P has a potentiometer with stops at the minimum and maximum speed
