I have many old HO cars adapted or a few still remaining to be converted to Gn15,
but I find that Bachmann On30 cars work great. 

Before Bachmann offered shorty On30 cars, I would shorten their gons. and flats,
by cutting out a section and gluing the body parts back together. 

Here are some examples. 

Thanks for looking. 

Regards, Dave L.

Since I like to control trains as they travel around the layout,
I now use small slide switches to put power into sidings or sections. 

I embed them into the surface of the layout. 

They are so small I cover them with scenic items like barrels, bags, and other "debris". 
To use the switch, I just lift the barrel, etc., and flip the switch. 

Hoping to get back on my feet soon to work on the layout again. 

Regards, Dave L.

Those are the cutest steam critters ever.

Great stuff.

I like the idea of hiding buttons and sliders with scenic items.

This note from Dave's wife Jerri.

Dave is still in the hospital, will be discharged tomorrow, to go to rehab for several weeks.

After several weeks of struggles with infection, and various surgeries and amputations (he has lost half of his left foot!)

He at last, seems to have turned the corner, and is improving.

I'm sure he will be in touch with you in a few weeks, when he is home.

Jerri

( Dave's wife )

Thanks, everyone. 

I am home and healing slowly. 

Not sure how much I can do with modeling for a while,
but I'll be here on the site as much as I can. 

Regards, Dave L.
