    • Ric, there are no marshalling or assembling of trains. With so many people running trains at once, I don't know how you could do that. It would be cool though. But, there are some people that don't watch switches as it is. It would be a recipe for disaster. 

      A couple years ago there was a head on collision with a USA Trains Big Boy and a an Aristo Pacific. It didn't end will for the poor pacific!

    • Very impressive!  Thank you for sharing.  In these days of not being able to attend Ops Sessions, Train OPs, travel to northern foreign lands or even just 28 miles south of our home base to the "World of BS", I'm jealous of the gathering.  Looks like a good  time was had by many and proper social distancing was observed.  Was there any marshalling, assembling of those large consists or any work for a small lonely switcher to find some gainful employment?

      Just asking for a friend.

    • LMAO!!! I thought I had turned the sound down in that part of the video. Ooops! 

      I love that sound that railpro has and the features too. I hope they can work on the range and get it closer to what revolution is.

    • The Freight Shed does not accept video formats. It has enough of a hard time with GIF photos.

    • Even if you were able to upload the video, it would not render from your freight shed.  I have had brief success getting video to render from my own web space. It required a configuration file to declare what to do with the file type. Worked for a while, but now does not.  I just use Vimeo (or Youtube) then embed that.

    • Bill, it may be that the Freight Sheds won't take video formats, but more likely is that you hit the size limit?

    • Bill,

       

      I am no expert, and the one time I did video here I uploaded to YouTube first, and as long as the embedded address is HTTPS/ you should be good to go. I do not think Bob intended for video in the freight sheds.

    • Have created a folder in my freight shed and loaded a video, shows it is loading and when it gets to 100% a small box at the top center says "please select a file to upload" and click ok every thing goes back to start and folder shows no file, tried 2 different videos and neither would load and starting to think it is the format that the video is in, thoughts?

    • Dave they at the least made the price of any go way up, and now to find a decent one requires a LOT of investigative crawling around to see what has been cobbled together.

    • Pete;

       

      Yeah, somebody else told me that the Dukes single-handedly made 68 & 69 Chargers scarce.  Hard to imagine, but I suppose it is possible.

       

      Thanks, David Meashey

    • Dave , quick search shows an approximate guess of 300 68 and 69 Dodge Chargers were destroyed some were used after a jump for other things, engines and usable parts were removed and the rest went to the crushers. Hate that show just for that reason. My first car was a 69 Charger, and now it’s huge money to buy one

    • Yes David;

       

      That does seem to be the case, probably due to budget constraints.  Those shows did not have the bigger budgets later shows were blessed with.  I'd just love to know just how many "General Lee" (am I allowed to type that these days?) Dodge Chargers got trashed during the production years for the Dukes of Hazard.

       

      Best, David Meashey

    • But you did note that it seems to be one blow up the bridge scene used in all the takes

    • We did Stan! I was a beautiful day. By the end of this day, we were all loaded up and heading home. And that's when the storms rolled in. We timed it just right! I need to do a passenger excursion sometime. I was just a kid the last time I rode on one and it was just an hour or so trip. That was in French Lick, In. 

       

       

      Cuz, that's my good buddy Aaron Fowler. He's my brother from another mother. I think he is still waiting on the b-unit to get finished for it. It's a super sharp train. (Who's Ralph?)
