      A cyclops from Fog Bottom is waiting for a train home. He offered Mumfree his hammer to work on the bench, but Mumfree couldn't lift it.

      And this, Johnson, is why we do not ship pets in the baggage car any more! They go on the roof! Or in first class, depending on what they want...

      Tres cool! Any problems with it falling over when you swing it to the side? How smooth is the panning? Got any example video to show us?

      Jim, 

      To answer your question about falling over. The car is counter weighted on the swinging arm and also the underside of the flat car is weighted for a lower center of gravity. The panning is really smooth. 

       

      This is is some rough (unmodified) video testing I did at Jack Verducci‘s garden railroad in San Mateo.

      ill try and get some more updated footage soon!

      Not very complicated. Watch your eyes!

    •    Overboard, Colin? Hell that is freaking awesome! I can't even hold an old phone steady! I'd love to see some more and bigger pictures of this.

    • I think I went a little overboard.... I used a Go Pro with a 3 axis gimbal and made a crane that is controllable by an RC helicopter controller.

    • With Google's Deep 'Dream' code you can do some trippy stuff with images. There are a number of web apps now providing the free imaging service online.
      Here is one of them: https://dreamscopeapp.com/
      Below are some experiments I did a while back using black and white pencil drawings by Nate Hefner, a young guy from the 'other site'.
      These are relatively 'tame' conversions resembling post impressionist painting styles.

      My pic viewer allows me to do a bump map, sketch or oil painting. I like the painting effect best.

      I play with the effects rarely though.

      Here's an old favorite that lends itself to the effect....

       

       

      Thats a cool one.  They have so many options from painting, cartons, sketching etc.....  The hardest is finding the one you like best.

      Really cool Shawn. Can you get a PC version? Or is it only a phone app? (I looked on their web site, didn't see the answer).

       

       

       

      Thanks Cliff.  I believe its only a Phone App but I could be wrong.  Windows might have something on PC.  There are a few different ones.  I found this to be the best.

      Is it just me, or does your locomotive seem to  have a toe out problem?

      Nice pictures Ken, I am just jealous of anyone with a nice layout.

      It did and I found out at the next switch..............
