Monday, May 7th, 2012

Also being pulled is an MTH NS coal hopper. The layout still has lots of work to be done. If you are wondering, you can hear my little girl Lily in the room. She will be 2 in February. Thanks for watching train friends!

The Winter Valley Regional Railway – Main line action.

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

A day on the Winter Valley Regional Railway. We find Extra 9034, leased CN power, passing through Hudson’s Mill just as the sun comes up on a mid September morning in 1975. By 0900 she is racing through down town Pearson and the way to Winter Valley. The A/B”s will slow at a crossing outside of town and ease into the station while a pair of SW1200RS’s shift Ontario Northland cars onto a siding. The Winter Valley power, an SD40-2 and a GP9 will take over from here moving the load up through High Pass to Colder and then down to Grande Prairie. There they will fuel up, sort a few cars and move on out to Edmonton and the rest of the world.

Question by pokemon rocks: how do you make a secondary line of model railroad track off of the main track to store a train on your layout?
i know how to make one but how do you cut off the electricity to the secondary one so that the stored train does not move when running a train on the main track

Best answer:

Answer by Matthew
You have to electrically insulate one of the rails on both ends, and attach a switch like this to turn the power on and off to the control rail:

You can order this from any place that sells non-Lionel trains.
