Youtube User "Boomer Dioramas" has a whole host of really fantastic videos showing off the fun that can be had with a very limited amount of space. His modeling and insights must not be missed!

People seem to really respond to any video that I put out showing trains running on the layout. (probably because it is proof that I am ACTUALLY making forward progress, slow though it may be.)
So I decided to put out a video of just trains. This first one is a learning experience, but one of the more enjoyable videos I've produced so far, so be ready for many more in the future!

It's still January so it is still ok to post one of those "resolutions" videos right?
Lot's of plans this year. Mainly I want to get my layout completely operational and to a "base layer" of "scenery" over the entire railroad. This is mainly so I can begin to have REAL operating sessions on the layout and comfortably run trains without the risk of loosing expensive equipment due to an unexpected plummet into carpet canyon.
More resolutions and reflections in the video below. 2021, here I come!

I took two weeks off this past Christmas to try to get some significant work done on the model railroad and I am pretty happy with the progress I made. I got all of the track laid down in the Usk Washington portion of the layout and I completed the mainline run on the MFR portion of the layout as well. I also re-laid the track across my larger swing gate to take advantage of some better techniques I discovered for aligning the track across the gap.
Along with good layout progress, I also made some significant purchases for the layout which includes (among many other items) a bunch of Tam Valley Frog Juicers, Exactrail bulkhead and centerbeam cars, and a Protothrottle as well.
