Jim's Model Railroad Site

Nampa, Idaho

One of my favorites

3D Printed Parts: Here you will find some of the 3D prints I have made for the model railroad. I use different programs to design them but many have been done in SketchUp 2020. It is easy for me but when I hit a limitation like stone wall displacement, I look elsewhere.

DCC & Electrical drawings: Various drawings as listed.

Data pages: Future

ME Frog Wire: Connecte a wire to the frog on Micro Engineering turnouts.

NCE PCP with Auto Switch: Using 3D printed components, add an Auto Switch and selector switch to the PCP panel to make a compact unit.

Modify the height of ties; Much easier than sanding or filing.

Tools: Various tools to aid modeling.

XX: future
