      Trains on my layout on 6-25-2020

      My good friend Ken came by this past Thursday with his steam engine and new passenger cars.

      Opening scene at the bridge made a grand beginning for the video.

      Interesting seeing track move down/compress a bit under trucks as cars come off end of bridge, have seen real life track do that so many places and so many times under the weight carried by cars' axles/trucks.

      Which is why track is built the way it is.

      Hey, I wanna see more of that Chessie GP! (yeah, I know, it looks just like all the rest of its class & the visiting steamer with train was the star of this show anyway)

      Thanks Forrest! Yeah, the track on that section of the railroad is floating on ballast. So, there is some give and take in it. I have several other videos with that chessie in it too!
