Elizabeth Yard Turn Job

This video highlights the actions of the second shift crew as they work the Elizabeth Yard Turn Job, from Tate Yard to Elizabeth Yard in Marietta, Georgia. Once reaching Elizabeth Yard the crew sets out their consist of loaded cars and picks up empties for the return trip back to Tate. The return trip occurs after the sun sets creating some dramatic night time scenes. I recently installed lighting in my structures with an LED light controller from Model Train Technology.

Switching Tate Yard

This video highlights the actions of the GNRR crew switching Tate Yard. The crew assembles their train for the Elizabeth Yard Turn Job and departs the yard.

Switching Dow Chemical

This video highlights the North Local switching Dow Chemical. Some newly weathered tank cars are featured in this video.

Switching Elizabeth Yard

This video highlights the actions of the North Local crew switching Elizabeth Yard on my new staging cassette. The staging cassette allows for staging three trains that run during an operating session.

Live Q&A and Operating Session

This video was recorded during a live Q&A session on my layout for the NMRA Piedmont Pilgrimage virtual layout tour. The video features a tour of the layout, behind the scenes views of the underside of the layout including wiring and the DCC/ProtoThrottle electronics, and a ops session. During the ops session I discuss following prototype procedures for a more realistic ops session.
