  1. Union Pacific SD70ACe Heritage Fleet - 6 Locomotives!

    Excellent job on these. My favorite is the Rio unit. Bright light orange is an exact CMYK value match to the real world color they used. -Jeffinslaw
  2. ME Models currently uses code 100 track for their curves and rail joiners. They have to use straight pieces of rail which does provide a little bit of issues on tight radius curves I believe. That's all I know. -Jeffinslaw
  3. This looks exciting! Since it is 3-D printed, can you design the switches to have groves cut out to fit HO code 100 track? -Jeffinslaw
  4. My Bad Experience with ME Models Curves

    This. My girlfriend and I spent a good solid week gluing 180 sections of track. WELL WORTH IT. This stuff is solid and doesn't break apart, rather "explode" when you touch it. Take your time and glue it. ME Models does plan on doing solid pieces for their plastic track eventually. -Jeffinslaw
  5. New MOC: Union Pacific 4017 "Big Boy"

    Looks great! Can't wait to see a video of it running! -Jeffinslaw
  6. Union Pacific Big Boy # 4014

    Looks killer! -Jeffinslaw
  7. Home Layout WIP

    Replace the black 1x1 and 1x4 with grey 1x1 and 1x4 to simulate concrete sleepers :) -Jeffinslaw
  8. Home Layout WIP

    Looks great! I would have gone with light bluish grey tiles for the sleepers to represent concrete sleepers since you're running a modern layout. Just my two cents! Looks killer. -Jeffinslaw
  9. Custom 3d Printed Steam Drivers

    Got my wheels in today. They look great. Just wish they had that polished appearance like actual bricks but not much can be done about that since they're being printed. Will post some pictures when I post pictures of my Cab Forward. -Jeffinslaw
  10. The ME models 9V curves come with code 100 HO rail already in them. They use rail joiners to connect together. So, all he had to do was file down one end of them :) -Jeffinslaw
  11. He machined down one end of the curve so that it fits with the stock Lego straight. -Jeffinslaw
  12. I ended up creating a spacing brick. It's working well. Thanks for the help! -Jeffinslaw
  13. Was in the process of gluing track, got all of the straights and R104 done. However, having some issues with the R88 curves. Here's an attached picture. Notice that there is an odd size gap near the connector. How will that affect ballasting the track once it's glued? R88 Curve by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr -Jeffinslaw
  14. Custom 3d Printed Steam Drivers

    I look forward to it! Will buy some as soon as they are ready. -Jeffinslaw
  15. Custom 3d Printed Steam Drivers

    Hey Shupp, What's the possibility of creating Boxpok drivers in the standard large Lego wheel size? I've got a Southern Pacific Cab Forward that I'm about 99% done with. I'd love to put on some more realistic looking wheels and the Boxpok ones would definitely fit the bill since I'm pretty sure that is what is used on the real thing. Thanks, Jeffinslaw
