I don't get the opportunity to watch too many videos, but I did view this one all the way through. That is a nice, tight, very attractive layout. Altogether it is very inspiring. I also didn't realize one could run THAT many cars on such a layout. I don't know, didn't count them, but the EFFECT was that of a large consist, so if that was your intention, it worked.  Every time I see one of these layouts by a fellow LSer I feel that the bar has once again been raised just one more notch. Good going !

One long train for such a layout. Looked to be about six or eight cars short of 'eating its own tail'. Was that all the rolling stock you have?

1st... thanks for the compliments...

2nd... Thats not all I have... its all that I like... Almost...

It is all the USA and Aristo stuff I have.. minus a few more cabooses... and some Bachmann Passenger Cars I ocassionaly run...

I have some more LGB and Bachmann stuff.... but the LGB are shorty Cars for the kids... and the Bachmann is the wrong time period, from when I 1st got into G scale (I hardly run it now at all)

So it is all I usually run... most of the time it is split into 2 trains... with some left over on the sidings...

I try to keep the trains in the 12-14 car range or under so the won't look weird...

I am going to add to the layout a bit... with 2 small sidings/yards at each end... then I can do some point to point switching and such... (and store more stuff on the layout without looking cramped up)

I need to get started on the scenery and detail stuff...
