Ok seems I am all over these boards now a days. I finshedrepairing my O scale lionel and have it up and chuggin but as I was working with it I knew I didnt like the scale and while at the nearst hobby shop I fell in love with HO scale. so now I have 2 questions. 1 I have a alaskan set (I will be runing this rail line) with this set came a Diesel loco and while there I purchsed a Great Northern Steam loco (I like old locos to) but my problem is the diesel is MUCH slower than the steam one even if I try to load the steam one down it is at least 4-5 times faster than the diesel so does any one know of any quicker diesel loco's. 2 does anyone know a good website where I can but HO scale trains, more specifically alaskan or canadian type trains (cold weather).
