Rob, I need to hear back from you regarding shipping charges. Hello?

John, the scene with the Sounder going around the lake is mine, not Joe's. I'd hate to see Joe get blamed for something he didn't do. ;)

Z scale Ballast Regulator mow Good call on isolating the metal wheels. I agree, they do look much better. I also love the windows. I was really on the fence about adding them. But these look great. What did you used? Rob

Z scale Ballast Regulator mow Rob, They are metal wheels, I thought they would look better. I isolated them when kapton tape to eliminate any possibility of shorts. I will have to work on getting a driver in on the next build. I have already installed windows on this one.
