Jim’s been back in touch with his BNSF model railroad layout:
To you and all those who share and contribute to your site. May your rails be true and your trains run too 🚂
I’ve been busy detailing and weathering rolling stock. I really don’t like changing all that super fine into “proto” looking rail cars. But that’s what modeling a railroad is all about.
I also recently purchased two BNSF Athearn Genesis ES44DC’s with Soundtraxx Tsunami 2 sound decoders. I changed some CV’s for functions and sound effects. A lot of trial and error but finally tweaked them.
I put together a video trying to highlight some of the functions and operational effects with these engines. Hope you enjoy
By the way, Jim’s last post is here.
“All some very simple images.
The partial American flag image was from the American Flag Company that was destroyed when a pipe burst right over the layout.
I scratch built the depot station building as well as the loading dock. The cars and barrels have been rusted out.
A big thanks to Dave, Geroge and to Jim for sharing his BNSF model railroad layout update.
Geroge’s post made me think just how many emails I get from folk who have lost their layouts to floods. Still – least this one was just a minor drip. And the wooden shak reminded me of this one.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming though – I can’t tell you how quiet it’s getting this end, and I enjoy the posts as much as you.
And if today is the day you get started on your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
PPS More HO scale train layouts here if that’s your thing.
