I've been following a thread on the Yahoo group about wiring the turnout for proper operation and ensuring that proper contact is made when throwing the switch.  There doesn't seem to be a consensus at to what is correct.  What do you guys have to say?

HOn3 General Discussion Forum / Blackstone K-28 & K-36 Locomotives!

Announcement says coming in 2014.  Cowabunga!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Found this on Train Board and can't get anyone to tackle it over there.  Would anyone like to try stretching #17, Buckley & Onarca, and turn it into an HOn3 point-to-point?  Both ends would have coaling/service and turntables, or possibly wyes to get locomotives turned around.  Anyone?

I need to start somewhere, so I am thinking along these lines.  Does anyone out there have plans?


PS:  As you can see in other threads, you may post plans right here in the forums.

New Product Announcements / New HOn3 track!

ProtoTraxx™ HOn3 Snap track!

We are truly excited to announce that Blackstone Models will be offering our
very own snap-together track with integrated roadbed!
Blackstone Models has designed the first pieces of a complete track system
specifically for HOn3

We've chosen to design our system around the familiar Kato Uni-Joiner for a
simple-to-put-together, reliable track system than can be enjoyed and
appreciated by beginners or seasoned modelers alike. Our friends at Kato have
proven over the years that their Uni-Joiner is both robust and electrically

The first pieces to be released include 228mm straights (approximately 9") and
480mm radius curves (approximately 19"). Each piece will have one Uni-Joiner at
each end. Ties have been textured, painted and scaled appropriately for HOn3.
The rail is code 70 nickel-silver. This is just the initial stage in developing
a complete system; we expect to announce the first switches a bit later in the

Though it is not common to announce advance reservations for track, we will be
taking pre-orders to help us gauge our purchase quantities. The straights will
be packaged in sets of four, as will the curves. Four packs of curves (4 in a
pkg.) results in a 360 degree circle. To make things easier for stocking and for
customers, we'll also offer a Starter Pack that includes 16 pieces of 480mm
curved track, 4 pieces of 228mm straights and one Power Joiner with 3 feet of

Delivery is expected in Fall 2012.
We hope to have these first pieces in stock by Fall of 2012 and in plenty of
time for the holiday season. Track is the perfect Christmas gift - pre-order now
to make sure you have plenty in stock when you need it!
P.N. Description MSRP
B500100 4-Pack, 228mm Straights (9") $18.25
B500200 4-Pack, 480mm radius curves (19") $18.25
B500900 Starter Set, 4 Straights, 16 Curves $89.95

You can see a photo of the pre-production sample (which they say "First shot
samples! Ties are not yet painted and some small modifications will be made for
better fit, but we are well on our way!" at our Facebook page"

The limited amount of members we have here, is mostly due to the fact that Steve Hatch won't let me advertise it on the HOn3 Yahoo group.  So please, if you are happy with this place, spread the word!
