    locomotive carrier recommendation, please
    Hey Pete,The carriers that John Bouck spoke about should be plenty strong enough to hold any of your locomotives.  We have several club members that have heavy brass locomotives from different manufacturers.  Below is a picture of the carrier to...  more
    Engine carriers
    Those are some nice looking carriers, but I only have one question. How do you drive your locomotive out of them if you use track power?The carriers we make with the aluminum angle allows both battery and track power to be used. The best of both worlds.

    Building a 1:20 Mikado
    This locomotive doesn't fit in any of my existing carriers. Since I plan to take it to Marty's (as is), I needed some good way to transport it.

    locomotive carrier recommendation, please
    I have a couple of big engines that weigh a lot (EBT #12, 50 lbs?). And I live in a condo, so I have no woodwork shop or any place to make a carrier.
