Track Talk Live’s Pre-Thanksgiving program didn’t serve up any turkeys, but there were plenty of pre-submitted and live questions for Clickety and Clack (aka Doug Hodgdon and Steve Doyle). As model railroading season chuffs into high gear, viewers needed answers about sub-roadbeds, laser-cut kits, bubbles in realistic water, materials for mountains, rail sizes, DCC systems, paint and decal stripping and many more. Again, viewers from Australia, Denmark, Barbados, England and Ireland added an international flavor to the monthly event, proving once again that model railroading is the World’s Best Hobby!
Is O and 027 the same except 0 is little bigger.
Hi, Eric. O27 and O are the same in many ways. The O27 was designed for smaller layouts and tighter curves. The O gauge equipment is generally bigger and heavier than the O27
on transition from roadbed to cork I use those shims for installing a door in a house they work great
Love your show. Question, maybe you might have an answer. I am an HO modeler, I have in my large stock of signs, people, etc. I have in my stock of signs (used on many RR) white back ground with 4 to 5 diag. black stripes. What do they mean?
Hi Jim. Thanks for watching the show. Steve and I enjoy doing it. You’re talking about safety stripes. They could be used on rail equipment, check out the Santa Fe early GP freight scheme!, …….and road blocks, grade crossings, etc. And, thanks for your question.
