Hall of fame member, Arnie has been in touch again. Have a look at what he’s putting together this time:
Seems that posts since the beginning of the year have increased in number and diversity; with some great examples of readers coming up with more creative tips and modelers with some really interesting small layouts.
I’m contacting you at this time because I decided to come up with a new video.
However, on a small layout like mine, I don’t want to overdo the same views.
So as you may have noticed from my past videos, I always try to come up with a somewhat unique story line to keep the viewer’s interest while viewing trains and listening to railroad sounds (and a musical soundtrack where possible).
The story line I’m considering is: the region is celebrating American Railroad Heritage Week; and the local railroad historical society is bringing out their superbly maintained trains for tourists and railfans to enjoy…through photography and excursion trips.
The plan is to depict trains from the steam into the early diesel eras.
However, at this time I don’t know how long the video(s) could end up being, or if the project is truly feasible and worth doing.
So I’ve created a sample video that could possibly serve as the intro to the more comprehensive video.
So would you consider posting this brief video so I could get readers’ feedback to help me decide if I should go on with the project?
This brief video is entitled, “Crossroads of Railroads.”
Now on to Mike, who has been in touch again with his progress (his last post is here).
“HI AL…..Here’s the progress report on my new On30 layout….Remember the Shay foto with box in background?….Here’s the box now sitting over the log pond…There are more openings coming on the pond side when walls are done…All wood is glued with super glue…The flatcars are HO frames from cheap car buys on ebay then built up….
Thanks to today’s contributors – especially Arnie. He does an amazing job on all his stuff – we’re lucky he found my little blog.
That’s all this time folks, please do keep ’em coming.
PS Latest ebay cheat sheet is here. Some good HO deals about at the mo.
