Brian has been back in touch with his layout that has its oewn model cliff railway.
You may remember because he’s a Brit living in New York who sent in this post: Canal layout
Now he’s shared a video of the layout.
I loved seeing the barge pulled by the engine – and the cliff railway too:
Its been about 1 month since you posted my model railway on your blog.
I must say I was very flattered by the comments which were made, what a wonderful bunch of people the model railway hobbyists are!
I must thank one contributor, Thomas Strangeway in particular. I had commented that I could not work out how to have my barge pulled by an engine; he suggested using Lego wheels. It works perfectly so thank you Thomas!😊
My other challenge has been how to send a video. With a little help from my daughter, not only have I managed to link together 4 video clips, I also learned how to download it onto Youtube.
In the 1st clip you will see the barge moving down the canal, with the help of the Lego wheels, in the 3rd you will see the Funicular (cliff railway) and in the 4th clip with the farm and park you will see at the bottom of the screen another canal with canal lock and 2 barges.
I hope you think this is good enough to post,
I much appreciate what you do for this wonderful hobby,
(Brit living just outside of New York!)
And now on to George, who always puts a smile on my face with his blog comments:
Some of my pics from the Strasburg Pa Museum. I was elated when they had a Shay, Climax & Heisler engine for me to see since they are my favorites.
The layout is a small model layout at the museum and I think they have a larger display that I will see soon.
And now on to Jim who is after some advice:
“I am having trouble deciding on bench work size to run N scale. I have been told 4×8 is too small because of radius.
But I have read that size is a good starting point particularly if you’re going to run Kato freight locomotives and cars, no passenger at this point.
Can someone help me with some suggestions?
A big thanks to George and to Brian for sharing his model cliff railway.
And who can help Jim?
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
