Hall of fame member, Rob, has made this video on a problem that’s he been trying to solve for a while.
There’s also a wondeful cab ride at 12 minutes in to it – stunning stuff:
“Hi Al, this video is about a system that signals a station for bi-directional traffic on the line.
It was purpose designed. The instructions are clear. I installed this system on my freight line which operates as a single line. It is a great system and fun to operate.
There is nothing on the market that I know of that does what this does. I highly recommend it. The operator can participate in dispatching trains or set it for single direction automatic operation and let it run on a small loop layout.
Just completed my first HO layout.
This was my first attempt in constructing a layout…since the last time I played with trains is well over 70 years ago.
Am thinking that a monorail above the layout could be interesting. Problem is that I have not seen monorail equipment. Does anyone out there know where I can be find it?
The first two of the vintage Marlin train.
The second two the Marlin intermodal.
The last three the Bachmann “The General”.
A big thanks to Rob and Ralph.
Lastly, I know many of you were wonderfully supportive through my financial wobble.
Lots of you wanted to donate to help keep the show on the road.
But to those who wanted to donate, I have made this page.
That’s all this time folks.
And thank you all for your support over the years. It really has meant so much to me.
