Got this in from Hall of Fame member, Arnie. As usual, it’s stunning. I loved it.
This is my follow-up to the recent Introductory video (CROSSROADS OF RAILROADS) you cordially posted about the fictional celebration of American Railroad Heritage Week in the Susquehanna Valley of my N scale layout.
As you may recall, the readers/viewers felt I should continue with my proposed plan for a short series on the subject. So, this is entitled, “Railroad Heritage Week: Chapter 2, Day 2.” The focus in this chapter is the arrival of a special charter, diesel passenger train that will carry executive members of the local Railroad Historical Society and other VIPs from the nearby townships and counties. The diesels are DCC and sound equippred. So all the engine sounds and station announcements are actually from the onboard decoders.
The final scene has a special feature I added: two very small embedded video clips of a band playing the “Thunderer March” as the VIP train enters the station proclaiming the official opening of the week’s celebration. I point this out because it may be difficult to notice the band in motion within the larger panoramic scene. The video of the band is an actual video of the U.S. President’s own Marine Corp. marching band.
Thanks Al. I hope you and everyone enjoys the video.
P.S.: I’ve started to work on the next chapter. When done, I will pass it on to you if there’s still interest expressed.”
Well what can I say about Arnie’s video? Very little, you’re probably already thinking it. So please, please leave a comment below.
And if Arnie’s inspired you, don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide. We all had to start somewhere – even Arnie!
