Ok, can't take credit for the layout Tom - thats a 14 year old named Dylan who goes under the name "cindersnsammy" on youtube. Maybe somebody will own up to being their kid... :)

That layout gives a great sense of rolling along on real old working line - good stuff - only thing I was going to suggest is clean some the ballast out of the rails... :) Nice of Dylan to let Dad use it once in a while... :)

Battery power? But of course! You mean there's another way? ;)

Thanks guys. We have a lot of fun with the layout. I didn't even know he had MADE that video until I saw it posted here.

Cheers,
Matt

Jerry,
The mainline is a little over 400' long. Takes about 5 minutes to complete a lap at reasonable speed.

I thought it was Matt's.
This is a very good example of blending in a RR with the landscape. The time of evening was right. I'd love to see him do one with the camera about 6 cars back like your riding in the caboose. Matt does run cabooses I think.

Marty,
Yes, all my trains are required to operate with cabooses. FRA rules and all, y'know. I'll see what we can do.

Cheers,
Matt
