By the way, the engine is not complete. I have several details to add but I was just happy to get it on the rails.

Mitch, I talked with a guy in michigan that does custom decals. It would be about $125 for the art work and set up, and then $25 per sheet. I could call him to see if the artwork could be used for both HO and N. Shall I do that?

Well done, Richard. Adding DCC to a brass engine can be long and tedious.

I agree with your assessment of TCS decoders. Excellent quality and a great warranty. BTW, the website is

Don't know of anybody with TPL decals. I'd be willing to jump in with you if you want to contract some out.

#37 of TPL is now on line on our NWP! An article describing the installation of the Decoder in the locomotive is posted at in the HO installation section. Train Control Systems make great products. Let me know what you all think!

Does anyone know of a source for decals for TPL?

Im finishing up a NWP "black Widow" GP9 in HO scale for my P&SR Grandview interchange, and writing an article for Model Railroader "Locomotive Kitbashing Contest" will upload pictures and article soon.

Richard and Mitch, perhaps the best way to share the article would be to start a discussion in this Modelers group (use the "+ Start Discussion" link above), and either copy and paste the article into the discussion text area or attach a binary file (PDF, MS Word, or whatever) to the discussion -- whichever is easiest. Looking forward to reading the article, Richard! Regards,

Mark D.

Mark, Mitch wants to see the article I wrote on modelling the Redwood. Any thoughts on how best to get it to him, or should I post it and the photos on the site?

New member Richard Todd from Ohio uploaded 8 photos of his NWP layout, including several of his very nice rendering of the Scotia Bluffs area. Here is but one -- be sure to take a look at all of them:
