- Hi, I m new to the group. I have a question. Are the items available for model trains regional? In other words, are there items available say that are orientalMessage 1 of 64 , Jun 20, 2002View SourceHi,
I'm new to the group. I have a question. Are the items available for
model trains regional? In other words, are there items available say
that are oriental in nature for model trains? I'm looking for things
like tiny bamboo bridges, ric shaws or however you spell that, tiny
pagoda's etc. That type of thing. I handmake 1" scale bonsai's for
dollhouses and roomboxes and in my tray landscapes z scale would be
perfect to maintain the scale of the bonsai. Also what is a good
source of z scale horses at reasonable prices?
Thanks in advance.

I think I have everything I need to get started with Rokuhan track EXCEPT, insulated rail joiners for DC blocks. I looked at the Rokuhan website, and the only insulated joiner shown insulates both rails for a reversing loop.

Cut it with a dremel or similar. It's then often a good idea to put a
tiny spec of something in the gap. It's not needed for the wheel guidance
(for a thin slit anyway) but it avoids getting nasty problems over time
if the rail moves with heating and cooling and touches again.
Or just use a double isolating track and feed power always to both sides
of the one rail.
