“Hi Alistair… Just a short video showing still bargains can be had on e bay here is one I have just managed to win, which also shows the results of a few different camera`s used too film the trains…
And well being a weekend and a taste of the sherry bottle again, I have added a bit of fun at the end of this one.
I know what Dave means, have a look at the very latest ebay cheat sheet. Some cracking deals about.
“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.
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.
A big thanks to Dave, Geroge and Jim.
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.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you wan to get going on your very own layout.
