Unpainted, open frame motor, would benefit from servicing and lubrication.  All details are firmly attached and mounted straight.  This is a good example of early brass models in HO.  The model is clean, no tarnish and nicely detailed. The box is showing wear, but is still viable.  The foam is in good condition.

TCSDCC and NCEDCC

For those who are using NCE Power Cab systems and want to expand their track and power capacity, you can add Cab Bus Fascia Panels, enabling you to move along with your trains and engines as they proceed around the layout.   They're quite simple to install and use and are very reasonably priced.

Model #UTP 052400207 is just $24.95 in Canadian funds to Canadian addresses.  $24.95 USD to American addresses.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These axle wipers are designed to be mounted on freight trucks to help maintain electrical continuity to onboard lighting or for track powered DCC decoders.  Two types are available at the same low price of $12.95.  Will ship at reasonable postal rates.

NCE DECODER TEST KIT.

A decoder tester is an essential tool to have on your DCC work bench.  It's always a good idea to test every decoder BEFORE you spend a lot of time installing it, only to find that you have to start troubleshooting it.  This one comes with LEDs to indicate what's working and what's not in your decoders.  You can add an HO DC12Volt motor with a flywheel so that you can visually confirm the efficiency of the slow speed function of the decoder. It's designed to test 9-pin and 8 pin decoders.  By adding an adapter, you can also test 21 pin decoders, although with understandable limitations.   If you you use mostly 21 pin decoders, it will be worthwhile for you to purchase a more sophisticated decoder tester that's designed to test the latest decoders.  ESU and TCS both manufacture and sell very good decoder testers.

CN, CP, BC RAil, PGE, Northern Alberta and more ... Railroad books for sale.

Today's listings are to be found in the BOOKS page.  I've just received a number of booklets, published in Calgary by The British Railway Modelers of North America. These are in a landscape format, black and white with glossy front and back covers.  Once upon a time, they were to be found on the publication racks of nearly every hobby shop, but have long since disappeared into private collections, modelers libraries and recycle bins.

What I have to offer in this line is mostly CP with coverage all across Canada and perhaps into the US on some CP subsidiaries.  Even the NAR is represented.  As well, there are a few from the PGE  and BCR.  Don't expect to find much in the way of CN in these volumes.  The previous owner was a staunch follower of CP until the end.  These books are very gently used with no tears, pages or photos cut out, or serious wear on edges.  They are collectible.
