RC Trains!? Another “best kept secret” in Sibley, Iowa

The NW Iowa Railroad club invited me to see their Model Train layout. It is very interesting to see what these folks do. I never knew the Trains were radio controlled, along with the switches and lights, etc. These folks are anxious to show off their trains, so give em a call if you want to bring your class for a tour or just want to come down and watch the fun yourself. Call for appointment in the off season, or stop by when the Osceola county Fair is running. The club is always looking for new members too, so if your interested, Give Denny Davids a call 712-754-3996 for more information on the Otter Valley Railroad from the NW Iowa Model Railroad Club. Thanks for watching. Dave

Well, if I were to be in your presence, without a stitch of clothing on, could we then say that your concentration would be like that of the wreck of the old 97?

If so, then yes, I’d say that it would be “derailed” so to speak. lol

Another question for model railroaders…?

Question by Mike M.: Another question for model railroaders…?
What’s the very best way to learn about digital command control? (DCC)

Best answer:

Answer by mariner31
Hmmm… I read the SEVERAL books published by Kalmbach Publishing / Model Railroader Magazine regarding DCC… starting with “DCC Made Easy – DCC for your Model Railroad” by Lionel Strang.

I also have a subscription to Model Railroader Magazine and their website which have CONSTANT articles and forums on the subject.

It (DCC) is the greatest thing to happen to the hobby since Flex-trak !! Wiring is SO much more simple than on an old DC system, and Operations are a BLAST !!

I run a 10’x12′ bedroom shelf layout with a large-yard, two heavy industries, a commuter train, and 2 hidden yards… I can now be running a LONG coal consist with TWO locos pulling, a LONG intermodal consist with THREE locos pulling, my Commuter line, and two yard engines… ALL at the SAME TIME !!

Question by Mike M.: Another question about model railroading?

Answer by don’t hate snowflake
