WOW! That is one very nice train! How many ore cars do you have? I think I have seven or nine altogether plus eight of the tiny mining cars pulled by the Plymouth switchers.

Lee, I have 22 of the Arizona Mining cars, each named after an Arizona Mine or Arizona Mining RR. Plus approx a dozen or so RR ore cars from various manufactures.

That is pretty heavy train for one locomotive! All the cars look great! Quite a string of them.

Who made the RS3?

Tom, the RS-3 is a Weaver. It does struggle to pull the 22 ore cars. I replaced it with a MTH Erie Mining RS-11 that has no problem pulling the string of ore cars.

What, no video :)

That is an impressive train.
Yep, it would be better as a video. I have not used my YouTube account for years, don't know if I could even reactivate it after all these years. I know there are around 50 videos of my previous layouts on the account.
