Atlas’s code 55 track line is great, except when it isn’t. The various internal wiring in the switches that transmits power to the closure rails sometimes fails, leaving ugly unpowered sections right where you don’t want them. A line of conductive paint solves this problem quickly and easily.

I’ve had a chance to run the layout through a number of scenarios, and I realized that I did actually need the crossover I had debated putting in coming out of CP LOUCKS at the north end of Windsor St Yard.
I’m making great progress on the York section of the Windsor St Yard layout. But some of the progress is on decidedly unglamorous things.
I’ve been making some progress on the Windsor St Yard layout. Nothing incredible, but necessary nonetheless.
Micro Slide Switches are a great way to control N scale turnouts, but they’re tough to solidly mount when you’re using something soft as your scenery base. I’ve developed a trick to solve that problem.

Track is something that can make or break a model railroad. The traditional code 80 track products that have been available for many years have ruined, for me at least, many a photograph. It was for this reason that I have been striving to have good looking, or at least inoffensive, track on my current […]
