Track Talk Live on the Road: August 2016


Track Talk Live’s team of Clickity (Doug Hodgdon) and Clack (Steve Doyle) took the show on the road to the historic Wayzata Depot in the western Twin Cities. The 110-year old depot was built by The Empire Builder – James J. Hill – and still retains much of the original fixtures and furniture. Located on the former mainline of the Great Northern Rwy, viewers were treated to a BNSF eastbound freight highballing into Minneapolis. In between fielding questions from viewers, the team toured the depot as well as a G Scale layout on the grounds outside which attracts thousands of visitors each year to the shores of Lake Minnetonka.

    I AM BUILDING AN EZ TRACK LAYOUT AND HAVE A PROBLEM WITH DOING A CROSS TRACK AND HAVING REVERSE POLARITY PROBLEMS . HAVING BACHMANN WORKING ON THIS. ANY SUGGESTIONS FROM YOUR END?? I HAVE TWO PIECES OF GAP TRACK. THE LAYOUT IS AN OVAL WITH 22″ RADIUS AND A TURNOUT SECTION GOING ACROSS AT HALF WAY WHICH REVERSES THE DIRECTION OF THE TRAIN. AND ALSO REVERSES THE POLARITY.
    THANK YOU

    I have enjoyed trains for many years, but never got involved in creating mountains, buildings, etc. I plan to learn more about the various things that I can make.
