An award winning documentary about model trains.
Joe, you seem to have a video for everything. When did you first get into the video business and how come?
I know what you mean, @Bill Boggs , he is amazing in coming up with videos of the most unusual things. He's like a media producer.
Hey Bill, it's good to see you, and I like the new avatar. Hope to see more of you. You know I'm a fan of yours.
And me of you. I change my avatar like my old hats.
In spring 2014, there was a model railway exhibition and this narrow gauge module system was presented in O Scale. It's a scene from the Wild West with locomotives of the railway companies Little River Lumber Company, Greenbrier & Big Run Lumber Company and Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad Company.
The Great Train Robbery took place in the early hours of Thursday the 8th August 1963. The gang of robbers stopped the Glasgow to London Royal Mail train at Sears Crossing on the West Coast Mainline, then moved forwards to Bridego Bridge, Ledburn near Mentmore in Buckinghamshire, between Leighton Buzzard and Cheddington Stations. A substantial amount of money equivalent to around £50 million in today's money was taken that day. This robbery has become the most well-known robbery of the 20th century in both the UK and the world.
Irish Model Railway
This model was built by Ed Yungling after experts insisted it could never run. It is 1/8 actual size, modeled after the famous Cab-Forwards built and used by the Southern Pacific Railway for use over the Donner Pass and elsewhere with snowsheds and tunnels. Idea was to put the Engineer up front, so the smoke and exhaust would trail behind him. They were simply turned backwards, with a windowed cab looking forward. The real engines were enormous! The model is astounding!
STAR WARS train arrives!
If I had a lot of room and a lot of money, I could really get into this sort of thing. I've always been impressed by elaborate train sets but have never had the money or the space to get into it.
Ken, you forgot to add "a lot of time" to your "If List"! Growing up as a boy, I had the chance to see a few lay outs, built by old gents in the neighborhood who used to work on the railroad, and they took it very seriously. They didn't wait til they had a lot of room.....like the real railroad, they appropriated space, as needed.
Yeah, I imagine time could be an issue too. It is a hobby that I can appreciate, although I've never had it.
I always appreciated their attention to detail, and the patience required to fool the eye. I guess we can add "a lot of patience" also.
The Circus is in town! ......Wait for it........
From horses to trains ....
