Opening 'The Western Pullman' train set by Hornby

featuring a beautiful and very smooth running Castle class locomotive in BR
green.and called 'Cadbury Castle'. The set also features 4 standard Pullman
coaches, plenty of track, a controller and some accessories.
Steam Trains Galore!
All aboard! Come along for a look at several steam trains running in the
western United States! Steam Trains Galore is a 28 minute long video that
features numerous shots of all sorts of different steam trains. You will
see everything from small park trains to the big steam trains that make
occasional runs on the main line today. This video is not narrated and
there are no captions on any of the video clips, so if there are any
questions about where some of these videos were filmed, I'd be happy to
answer them. I'm trying to increase the variety of videos I have on my
page, so this video is geared towards a different (younger) audience. This
is to get a better sense as to what types of videos are the most popular.
If this is well received, I will post more like it in the future. So, that
said, please leave feedback. Thank you!
Plowing snow on a 7.5" Gauge Railroad. This video shows opening the track
between Train Mountain and Klamath & Western. The snow was 18" deep in some
places, and the track under the snow was sufficiently icy that it was
difficult to build up speed. After coming up the 2.5% Pena grade, I was
able to build up speed going over the dry track on the bridge into the 1.8%
downgrade. You can see how the snow flies with a little speed.
Unfortunately, the camera angle was not always good as I was holding the
camera with one hand and operating the locomotive with the other, while
holding my feet up out of the snow.
Opening 'The Royal Scot' train set from Hornby
This set is simply amazing. The quality of the loco and coaches is
extremely high, so high, that when you factor in the amount of track you
get, plus a station and controller - if you can get this set... do!!!
