Train Video: switching KGB Manufacturing

The Scene:
A Union Pacific MP15DC pulls a couple of loaded boxcars out of KGB manufacturing.

I shot this tonight with a digital photo camera so the quality's a bit low. But these are the first ever photos and video of my layout ever to appear on the web.

A tad over 11 Mb and 4 min.



I've completed some more scenerey in the area as well as done some work on structures.
The brick building that is KGB Mfr. is a scratch built structure I originally started building in 1995! It's nice to be able to say it's done finally! Tho, I may go back later and add more details to it.

Once again, low quality but that's what you get for using a digital photo camera to make trains vids.  :P

I haven't really fixed the era yet.
Despite seeing UP loco's I've been purchasing MRL equipment lately and this will be an MRL/BN freelance layout. UP motive power will also make an appearance on run throughs and possibly interchange. So, I guess that puts me in the late 80's early 90's for a time period. This layout is something I've peiced together over the years to get to what I have now and I'm liking it more and more now that scenery and other elements are finally taking shape. But, that said, I'm using the whole thing as a test bed to develope my techniques for layout building. So, the plan is for this layout to go away once it's mostly done and I have designed a replacement.
