The MRA team of Doug Hodgdon and Steve Doyle (“Clickety and Clack”) hosted the May Track Talk Live at Steve’s “CB&Q/Lines East” S-Scale layout. Viewers representing virtually all of the scales submitted live questions from across North America. Among them, the crew discussed troubleshooting faulty locomotives, DCC-running versus DC, inspiration for layout aspects, tree-making and coloring brick. They’ll hit the rails again at the end of June, so get your questions ready!

    I am wanting to go DCC and I see you have DVD's available. My problem is are they region free to play on any player any where in the world or are they set up for the US only. I live in New Zealand which I think is region 4 or region 2 I am not sure which.

    In your video you show using these red power clips so you can make fast work of taping on a conductor running under the board. I would like to know where I can purchase them? Thanks
