Forward and reverse are controlled by the Johnson bar, shown here.

This is actually a giant, home made, center off, double pole double throw reversing switch,

which, you guessed it, reverses DC polarity to the drive motor, just like we've always done it. :thumb:

About the size...:old dude:

No. 11, while running on the same 7 1/2 inch gauge track, is HUGE when compared to regular 7 1/2 standard gauge.

I think the 'Bountyland' take on 7 1/2" narrow gauge, is the one that does it for me !  :)

About complete but not quite.

I still have to add the batten strips to the rear.

Hi Unk.  :wave:



The new Bountyland freight shed building is lookin' GREAT !  :rah:



I do like the look of your 'hand laid' track Bob.  :thumb:

That Code-1000 you use is VERY realistic !



I guess the lil' plastic-bag with 500 spikes in it, probably needs a fork-lift to move it.  :shocked:

Flextrack is OK, but you probably can't order it from 'Walthers' in your scale !  :P



When I get around to laying some track ...

... I hope mine has that  C :cool: :cool: L  funky narrow gauge look like yours Unk !  :)



I guess asking what you stain your ties with ... & if you pre-distress them, is just silly !  ;)


Keep it BIG ! Uncle Bob !  :old dude:



:moose:



Si.

Si, with BLRY, "weathering" is a problem, not a technique.

We are currently replacing the wood in our 50 foot bridge from the bents up, and next year will see the start of replacing every fifth tie.:old dude:

BTW, our "spikes" are one inch washer head screws.
