I did a "roll your own" on most of the turntable tracks, just a couple of left-over ties from the flex track. I also have some Atlas track bumpers, they are a perfect fit for Gargraves and Ross track, so that's a plus.Nice progress John. Everything appears to be very smooth.
Saw your track bumper. Perfect for what we need in the roundhouse as a bumper.
It's not smoking because I turned that off so we could see! I made the mistake of running one of these with smoke at the NJ-HR on the same locomotive, and the smoke was a distraction. I'll be sorting out the seating after all the wiring is taken care of. I think I'll have to have a landscape party or two to get some nice scenery in place, that's certainly not my strong suit. Technical and mechanical, I'm fine with, artistic stuff, I'm not quite so fine.All right !
At last we have smoke, well maybe not smoke but a train running.
Good thing it isn't smoking we wouldn't be able to see.
You need a couple Captain bar chairs for you guys to sit on while running.
Been a long time coming, Looking good.
Five feet isn't exactly much, my layout program could make that big an error. I think our track amounts are pretty close, I just checked what my layout program has for what I actually have down, it's 356 feet, that counts everything like the turntable whisker tracks, switches, etc. Once I add the 8-track yard, that will run up the total a bit, but that's in the future a few months, I need to get this part running first.Cool video, and a beautiful, neatly constructed layout. And big, at 140 feet your loop is longer than my longest (135 feet, and I only have alittle over 300 feet in total - you look to have much much more!!
