Holy crap!! That is one nice layout. Did you see all the turnouts in his yard!?!? Those alone cost more than everything i have. It's also nice to see a large layout that has operational aspects. A lot of the large layouts I have seen lately are just big roundy rounds. They are nice, just not my thing.
Thanks for sharing Nick. I think I'm going to watch the video again.

This layout has 4000 cars and over 300 engines, all with metal wheels and kadee couplers.
Switches are air controlled.

A great layout to see in the phoenix area.

Yes he has Troubles. Yes I have been there a coupld of times only to be disappointed because he was not running. How many of you have had troubles with our layout. I know Marty has. I have. And with a layout that size it has.

The there are some ideas in formation to learn from that video.


Marty Go stand in the corner and make shame for a hour for teasing Tod.

It's great to see this fabulous model railroad finally get some outside attention. The Phoenix guys have been enjoying it for three years already. He has hosted club meetings, fed everyone from the restaurant, has an open run night once a month, and was open every night during the convention. He is a very gracious guy, willing to share this railroad with anyone who wants to come by.

I bet that if a bunch of us from mls would decend on his layout in force we could solve all of his problems in a couple of days. His Layout would run flawlessly

As I've heard it, his problem is that Airwire "sold him a bill of goods." He told them that he wanted to run these humongous trains and they said their system was up to the task. Seems it wasn't.

Dennis has one of the most magnificent railroads ever constructed. His trackwork is absolutely "perfect." Sighting down the longest straight section of track, you can't see a ripple. That's really something in the Mesa, AZ sun. The subroadbed is concrete with soft roadbed under the track. He can run 20 USA passenger car trains pulled by ABBA PA's or 50-60 car freight trains without mishap.

Yes, like any other layout, there are some struggles but to visit and experience the layout, it's nothing less than awesome. Regardless if he has problems with battery or track power.

I've enjoyed my time visiting and experiencing his masterpiece. Wonderful video..... Thanks for posting it.

Oh yeah..... Remember, these are toys.... :):D/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/hehe.gif

Marty, you're almost there. Just a couple of more sections of track and you'll be REALLY close.. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif
