« Last post by ng492 on November 05, 2017, 11:29:55 PM »
Hello All,
It's been a while since I've posted anything so I wanted to post a link to some photos.
This summer I traveled to Chama to attend the 315 charter. I'm slowly editing my photos, but here's what I have so far.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Welcome aboard! / New to the Forum

Hello my name is Michael Moore.  I have in HOn3 since I was 18 years old.  The Rio Grande is my main focus, but mix it up with some RGS, C&S, White Pass,  and EBT for fun.  It is nice to meet you all.

I thought some of you would like to know that Con-Cor has recently announced they are doing a run of HO/HOn3 Rio Grande Rotary Snow Plow OY.  They are doing few different versions.  I have reserved one myself.

Have a nice day

Swap Meet / Selling all of my Hon3
« Last post by Gfdmatt on May 17, 2017, 01:57:09 PM »
 Hey guys I have decided not to model hon3 anymore and have everything (minus dcc control)  from my old layout for sale. Some items are still unopen as seen in the pictures. I would prefer to sell this entirely as a lot. Almost all of the rolling stock is Blackstone along with the K27 which is DCC and sound equipped. The mogul is PFM with a decoder. I also have around 15-20 sticks of flex track. The boxed rolling stock is an assortment of 6 high sided gondolas, some weathered from the factory. 1 stock car and 1 box car.  If you'd like any more pictures of anything please let me know.

I am located near Sun City Az and would much rather meet or drop everything off instead of ship. But shipping could be arranged at buyer's expense

Asking 1150 for everything.

Latest I've heard from Blackstone is no parts for K-28 & K-36 until next year. :(

They didn't attend the Narrow Gauge convention.

Great looking model. Congratulations.

I wonder whether you have posted the promised comparative pictures somewhere else? Would love to see BS and PSC reefer side by side.

Greetings from Switzerland.

All: i am needing these screws as I have a C-16 that likes to throw them out of sight and out of my mind looking for errant screw. As the old saying goes, please help! Thank you. Paul.
DCC And Electronics / Bluetooth 4.0 Train Control from BlueRailTrains/Bachmann
« Last post by railtwister on January 11, 2016, 08:52:04 PM »
Bachmann's new E-Z App HO locomotives became available this past December, and I bought an Alco RS3 to try the system out. I liked it so much that I ordered a second loco a week later (this time an EMD FT). For the month of December, my HO modules were set up at a local library for my club's Holiday display, so I had a limited opportunity to play with them, first using my iPad, and then with my new iPhone 5s. The large screen of the iPad was great for showing the system to others, but I found I liked the iPhone a bit better, since since it was easy to control my trains using just one hand. I really like this system, and I think it has great potential (watch out DCC!). BlueRailTrains, the developer, has partnered with Bachmann to bring this product to fruition, Bachmann will sell train sets and locomotives with E-Z App boards factory installed and ready-to-run, while BlueRailTrains will offer user-installed boards to convert existing locos. Right now, the app for Apple's IOS is available (free on the App Store), with the Android app to be available in early 2016. The first separate boards are also scheduled for release in early 2016, I'm anxiously awaiting those.

Right now, the sound is produced in the control device, but the boards have a port for options like an on-board sound circuit, as well as solder pads for onboard battery power. I think there are many great possibilities with this system for the future, and I'm more exited than when I got my first DCC system way back in 1993.

For more info, see the website, or check out Bachmann's site to see which RTR locos and road names are available.
