Arnie – one of the big guns from the Hall of Fame has been in touch again. I hope you enjoy it as much as me:
I’ve been trying to keep up regularly with your posts even though summer season is a time that gets most of us out of the house and into more outdoor activities. But what I’ve noticed is that it seems more readers are being more active contributors of photos and videos of their own projects. That’s great!
As you may recall, I was working on a series of videos around the theme of a fictional American Railroad Heritage Week. I have since gathered raw video footage for 2 such videos and hope to get to work on these soon.
However, I recently acquired a new steam locomotive from Broadway Limited Imports for my N scale layout. It’s their first N scale steam loco with DCC and sound. The sounds from this engine are of superior prototype reproduction; especially given this is N scale and limited to using very small speakers. The slow speed operation seems to be the best in the industry in my opinion. So I decided to do a video featuring this Pennsylvania Railroad M1a, 4-8-2 steamer in a story line around the heritage railroad theme. It focuses on the fiction of the M1a being used in excursion train service in the early post-1970s era in the Susquehanna Valley.
Hope you can post it and that you find it enjoyable.
Thanks — Arnie”
