      Great video!  Very impressed with the smoothness of your track.  I felt rough ness would have really shown up with the camera overlooking the coupling of the two flat cars. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks all for the kind words!  The track is in pretty good shape, since the first few weeks of lockdown when i spent some quality time outside.  It could use some more work yet but i have lots of projects:  new extention with long trestle, 1:20 scale coach for a freind, cutting some full scale trees which blew down, one oak i hope to saw for timbers for a full scale coach, typical lawn mowing and gardening, walks with the dog, a little kayaking and lately heading back to the museum for some full scale track work.

      It’s was kind of difficult since camera guy didn’t hold the whole train in a single run by but yeah Matt 46 is what I  counted 

       

       

       

      Camera guy may, or may not, have had several beers by that point and his focus wasn't that good either. hahahaha!!!!!!

    • I've been wanting to see how long of a train can be ran on the layout ever since the expansion was finished. I still have a few more cars I can add to the train and will try that next time. The train had 4 dash 9's running at full throttle for about 30 minutes or so. You can see the engines and cars "dancing" around on the track at that speed. At a scale speed it looks more realistic. Anyway, after that I took a few of the "fragile" cars off and put them up. Then I just let the train run at a scale speed while I washed and waxed my wife's car. Little did I know, people would be stopping by. I pretty much spent the late afternoon giving layout tours. hahaha. 

      Eventually I will have the rest of my fence put up. But that is going to change how the trains look coming through the long sweeping curves. I have a couple good friends coming over to run trains soon, and I'd like to see them run before I put the fence up. After that, I'll get the fence up and I have a few ideas to change things up there too.

      Thanks Mike. Hopefully within a few years, I'll get the track work complete and I'll be able to start working on some scenery.

       

      I mapped my deck out yesterday, but I have a rain delay today. I'd like to get it ripped out next week, and start work on the new deck, and track expansion.

       

      We will wait but we are not getting any younger!

       

      RR looks great
