Join us live on YouTube at 11am EST this morning as we reveal four all-new locomotives (2 HO and 2 N) live from the Railroad Hobby Show in W. Springfield, MA.

When the show opens at 9am EST, a 360-degree camera will be live streaming from the Better Living Center (BLC), booth #34A.  You’ll be able to control the camera and see everything that’s happening throughout the BLC.

All live feeds are courtesy of our friends at Virtual Railfan.

Visit our YouTube page.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the show and online.

@Point353  When I clicked on the live stream, I got a Scale Trains logo with a countdown clock in the bottom left corner.  It appears from the countdown clock that 9 am EST was a bit optimistic, and the countdown will end at 10am EST, when one assumes the video feed will come up.

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.

Think of 9 AM as the pre-announcement of the 10am pre-announcement of the 11AM announcement that will hopefully be announced by noon.

Looks like the stream is live now, but out of focus.

360 degree camera feeding out to several thousand end users is a whole lot of bandwidth-  I could probably save them some by logging off, as it will be a big surprise if they release anything pre-1956 that I could use on my planned layout.  But here's hoping.

Well maybe considering they are having audio issues with the announcement.

Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will

I’ll definitely need to get a pair of the Norfolk Southern ones provided they do them then

Having worked a lot of pro audio in my life, maybe 1000 gigs with wireless mics.....

Top 5 reasons for wireless mic issues-
#5- mic is muted at the board
#4- the wire between mic and mic pack is broken-usually at the mic pack connector- from being bent too often and/or wrapped to tight
#3- batteries are dead in mic pack
#2- mic pack is not turned on
#1- mic pack mute switch is on

So the 4 new locos (2 in each scale) is just one loco with different levels of detail?

How about something for pre 1980s modelers next time, like a GP30

While the ad does say watch us live on youtube, it doesn't say anything about being able to listen.
