    • after watching the video a couple of times I see some potential problem spots I need to address, some abrupt connections and not smooth transitions , and some dips that could cause problems. Kind of helpful to do this to get inspection of track, I will have to add a corrected video in the future to this after the track gang has done their job.

    •  The bridge looks great with that nice long freight going over it. 

       

      The blooper was too funny and all to common when the cameras are recording.  

      I had a scramble yesterday when I sent the wedge plow out to push aside leaves and twigs before running a train and it let go near the top of the longest grade section of about 2% over near 100 feet on my RR and it was picking up some good speed as it headed towards the curve at the bottom.  No video but I got some cardio in intercepting it.

    • I had the same thing happen Pete, editing made the video disappear... I think you have to be careful to have carriage returns (new line) before and after the embed code, and editing removes them. That's why I often make the video a separate post from my text, that works all the time, the downside is I have to make 2 posts... but then I can edit the post with the text as often as needed.

    • I have found if you have a well used long handle shovel Image result for long handle shovelwere the point has been rounded  ... it will ride the rails nicely .. not catching the ties ... of course you have to be carful near switches ( switch stands etc. ).

      Todd, Rooster, have yo had a derailemt in the curves due to the weight of the snow pushing the plow off the tracks?  With elevated RR's seeems like that might be a big problem if it happens.

       

       

      Oh yeah you can count on derailments and hope they don't happen where major damage can occur.  I send my plow round before I run  trains to push aside any junk that may have fallen on the tracks and I have had plenty of derailments and crashes bouncing over twigs, acorns and pine cones.   I keep my finger on the all stop button on my controls just in case the wheels jump off and they do but that is all part and parcel of the adventures in Garden Railroading.
