This covers pretty much the whole layout.  More fun with sound bites, too!

Extremely nice job, Lee. You need some flange oilers though, that wheel screech really grates on the ears.  ;D ;D ;D

This reminds me, you also need a crew familiaration packet.

A simple map of the system, corresponding to locations on the layout, and how they relate.

This way, I'd know that CNJ cars go on the AJ-12 instead of the East Local. But some Reading traffic goes into something else to be relayed via Gettysburg, etc.

Ah yes.  Yet another thing for the in-basket.

I'll post a downloadable pdf so you can burn up your ink cartridge, not mine!

No problem.

If you want, I can do some work on helping put it together too.

The way I see it, the switcher I use for the paper mill won't have a real chance to make any screaching flange sounds. ;) My ears are safe til those alphas come blasting through.


But the videos are awesome. Since this will be my 3rd visit to the WM, maybe I'll know my way around better.
Great work Lee! Oh, I got my new throttle. Only one came with the box.

Could not get a chance to view the videos until now. Lee, Simply stunning. My hat is off to you.

What editing software did you use??

I'm using MS Movie Maker, which came bundled with my last Windows upgrade.  Editing the sound is a little dicey, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy.  Both the video and the audio were recorded with my Canon S-2.

Thanks for the kind words!

Lee-

That's an incredibly cool video... I feel like I've run a train over your layout.

I agree that the sounds make it feel like the real thing, and you didn't run the train too fast, either.

Thanks for sharing all your hard work!

Kudos! ;D

Very cool!  8) Impressive layout and scenery.

One comment, doesn't the LV observe rule 93? That coal drag highballed through Ridgley yard!  ;)

I think it's caused by a "Rule G" violation...
