    That is really neat! I love how long it takes to go around your layout. You might have a blackout soon, one of your power poles looks like it is about to fall :)

    Thanks for the ride, Les. I think maybe I should have had a Gravol before boarding, though. ;):-D:-D

    Les, Thank you ! What a neat way (well done, too) to show us your layout ! I'm curious - did watching it give you a different perspective on your creation ? Thanks again ! Bob C.

    That was just a hot diggity-dog E Ticket ride! (Old Disneyland reference...)!!

    Seems like Folsom Prison Blues or some other song (Riding on the City of New Orleans?) ought to be playing in the background.

    As for the leaning power pole, there are quite a few of those on the UP line heading into Portland, Oregon. One outside The Dales is just about laying down parallel to the ground.

    Great ride... thanks!

    ** edited to add...**

    Also, that is one mighty fine layout. Holy smokes, where the turn out crosses the inside track to get to the outside track is just insprational goodness!!

    Jesso, thanks I didn’t realize the pole was down until I got to it.

    Steamhead, The drunken pole was done by some drunken teenagers the wires that are so fine you can’t see them in the video they are why it is not on the tracks. They were caught.

    Wayne, Pardon my ignorance but what is a Gravol

    Chooch, Oh yeah it did and I liked it.

    Seanm, Thanks that is what I hoped for

    DeclRoid, You are quite welcome.

    Slekjr, Thank you very much. I started bench work in July of 96. And the drivers are a gutsy bunch. They also change as I have open house once a year and I rearrange anything I can for that.


    I hope to have more. My next will be yard action.

    Very nice.:thumb:
    One thing though..I found myself holding my breath as the train cross the viaduct when I saw the roof tops..sign1 Nothing changes..I did that when I worked on the C&O/Chessie whenever we cross a high bridge.
    Nice touch!:thumb:
