Besides the start-up of N-Scale Magazine, the last ten years have brought a number of new prodthat make modeling in N scale easier and less frustrating. Both the magaand the products have helped bring new people into the hobby and have helped our scale grow.
It's hard to pick the star product of recent years, but since my special interest has been in improving locomotive performance, there is a clear winner in that field. It is the low friction diesel truck design by Kato. This design uses pointed axles on the trucks and brass plates with "dimples" that fit over the axle ends. Electricity goes from the track, to the wheels, to the axles, to the plates, and then to the motor. There are no wipers to drag on the wheels and to collect dirt. With the motor removed, the engine rolls on a slope as easily as quality N scale cars do. Flywheels had been added to engines before, but the effect was not apparent. With the low friction design, flywheels now have a noticeable effect in smooth starts and stops.
Variations of this truck design are now used on engines made by Life-Like and Atlas. This adds to our list of good performing engines.
