      Shasta Pacific open house

      Hi all,

      We had our first run day/open railroad  since 2019 this weekend.  Over the 2 afternoons we had about 70 friends and family visit.  We were lucky to have a good friend volunteer to come both days and run trains and answer visitors questions. It worked well as he handled one end of the railroad while I was at the other end. Even luckier my B-i-L came up and shot a video of the railroad while it was "all dressed up".

      Hope you enjoy.

      Nice video. Terrific railroad! I've seen the bits and pieces of it get built but it is great to see it with trains going by. Nice!

       

      That is a terrific bunch of models you have there!

      Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed the video.

      My Brother in Law always does a great job putting a video together.

       

      Hey Ken,

      You will be pleased to know, even after all the MOW work before hand I still had to repair 2 switches over the weekend.

      Rick, you give true meaning to the term "Craftsman".  Excellent video of a beautiful railroad.  Thanks for sharing.

      We did, and he does.  I've been a fan of his Youtube Channel for a long time.

       

      Railroad looks fantastic!

      Gorgeous layout Rick, thanks for the video. 

      Did you also acquire sections of the Port Orford Coast layout, or is all that new build?

      Cliff,

      I have 3 buildings besides the bridge that Dick wanted me to try to save/rebuild. The only one redone so far is the inclosed water tank shown at 1:23 and 2:48 in the video. I did a small build thread a while back about refurbishing it.  Of the other 2 buildings maybe one of them is salvageable the other not so much. But they are on the to do list for this coming winter, we will see what happens with them.
