B&O National Limited on Modutrak

I subscribe to the Modutrak video releases on YouTube and got notice of a new video of the B&O National Limited. Excellent modeling and video as usual! The broad radius and banked curves make the approach and trailing shots so realistic and the hand motion in one of the shots reminds me of the old 8 mm stuff we all crave to see now. Take a look - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UblvNYS00A&feature=uploademail
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I love "ugly" passenger trains. This definitely fits the bill, like the NY-FL streamliners. A jumble of cars in different schemes, etc...

One day I really want to build one of those, with power from each of the roads. That'd be fun...

Excellent.  Would love to see my old friend Bill Howes see this.  He was the director of B&O passenger service back then.

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

mixture of a couple of different heights & colors of static grass & tufts over your basic ground foams and lots of super trees (jamie LOVES super trees!)

I especially liked the highway viaduct scene--very midwest!
Best regards,

Roger H., I agree the scene looks very midwestern.
I recently tried some of the Heki wild grasses to improve the look of remote areas on my layout.
This was inspired by an article in one of the mags.
