2 Rail O Scale In The Great Outdoors
Posted by 2 Rail O Scale In The Great Outdoors on Sunday, February 12, 2017 8:56 PM

Hello all, I have been lurking for quite sometime, I decided I wanted to join this great community.

I originally was modeling HO scale Outdoors and it worked great for 2 years, but then I was snared by an O scale KTM 5011 Class Santa Fe 2-10-4, what a beast, so I decided to get rid of the HO stuff and now have started a new O scale layout outdoors. 

I have a new blog, here is the link   https://oscaleoutdoors.blogspot.com/  where I will be documenting my trials and tribulations in this endeavor and hope to encourage other people to go into the Great Outdoors as well with O scale 2 Rail, 3 Rail or any other scale for that matter.

I am new at this blogging thing so bare with me as I learn the ropes. I look forward to hearing from everyone.         

Best Regards

Robert from Kansas

I will be posting in a few days on my blogg how I adapted an old Lionel 275 Watt ZW AC transformer to do DC, it makes a great stop gap until I get my DCC stuff to convert everything.

Best Regards

Hello everyone, late last night I finally was able to post on my blog about adapting of my Lionel ZW Transformer to DC use.  I also posted a short video of my Santa Fe Hudson 3451 running back and forth on my outdoor layout powered by my ZW.  I hope everyone will enjoy.
