  6. Are you planning to build your own track? Atlas is code 148, quite heavy for a switching pike and shipping from the US is a bit of a punishment. Marcway in Sheffield do flat-bottom code 124 and 148 with Nth Am tie spacing, in copper clad/soldered construction, which isn't everyone's favourite. Unless it's hard-worked industrial-area trackage! If money's no prob then Right-O-Way from Jay Criswell in California is recommended 4 or 5 40ft cars is plenty for a shortline in O and those hoppers, cov'd hoppers and tank cars are often shorter than 40ft boxcars. Cracking s
  7. Phil, v minor point, there's no duty, just VAT on the declared product cost and shipping cost added together. Still painful. Jason
  8. C'mon Jordan, this evening (home?) slice the ends off both, take one of the cupolas off, stick what remains together and you'll have the start of a nice end cupola bogie caboose, bit like an SP prototype. Yeah, yeah, you'll need to fill that hole in the roof, redo the underframe, get some trucks, but you'll end up with some spare ends for your next kitbash, a pair of Kadees and 4 axles of good Peartree wheels. Aaaah, O-scale!! Jason
  9. The wheels are nickel-silver(?) plated whitemetal and as they wear, the w/m gets a covering of track-grime easily, so clean them regularly. NorthWest Short Line do replacements for the Roco/Atlas F-units (40" wheels), but I haven't seen any for the Plymouths (36"). Way back I read an article where the writer thought all the thick grease was used by the factory to stop the gears suffering from being banged around in shipping. Jordan's reminder to clean it all out and replace with fresh oil is what I do, usually after I've put it off for too long. Jason
  10. My apologies to Sir Douglas, he started this thread for non-GOG members views, it's just that some of the comments are irrelevant to today's recent financial puzzles. Anybody else tried swapping software at the same time as changing the real world's application requirements? Today's O-gauge scene, apart from the supposed Guild battle: are potential O-gaugers 'modern image' or 'steam' modellers (BTW I think the answer's Yes ) is which online environment do you prefer: Fb - ask a specific question - try the suggestion - didn't work - reword the question - etc, or a forum - I'm thin
  11. Well please tell me how you check(ed) the real facts. Thanks Jason
  12. Barry, my understanding as a regular GOG member has always been that the ALSRM start-up was triggered by a row in the Guild higher ranks and then the broader scale interests followed on. Certainly one of the big names discontinued Guild members' sales discounts at the same time. Jason
  13. Choice is an honorary 4-letter word. To choose which domestic shipper to use in the USA is ...er ...impossible? OK, you're right, spin the knife! DHL is one of the trans-Atlantic methods offered, they don't appear to do person-to-person shipping (like USPS for example): https://www.dhl.com/us-en/home/ship/parcel-and-document-shipping.html Look for the X Jason
