And here is the real deal, Andy.

ES44AC #5760 is about to set off from the Roberts Bank coal terminal on its way to Wyoming with a train of empty coal hoppers. Almost certainly passing through Wenatchee.



Halloween is well and truly over for us here in Oz. Haven't been taken down by any ghosts or goblins luckily.

OK guys, just a little update on what I've been doing.

I tried to build a flickering camp fire simulation from circuit board, resistors and electric tee lights with miserable results.  So, I bought one instead, and installed it in the new improved hobo camp.  Not sure if you can put videos on the Forum, so there's a photo below, instead.

Also, I thought I'd post a NS Heritage unit photo, opposite the Patriot Banners and Flags factory at Blue Haven.

Finally, I've been putting up some new LEDs and bulbs around the layout.  I still think I need a lot more.  However, one of the new ones was put up on the platform at the old South Pine depot, now the "All Aboard" restaurant.  What better way to spend an evening but having a nice meal with your loved one, a couple of cold ones and then dragging her outside into the cold November air to witness a train arriving into the yard?

Great photos, Andy!!

Hobo guys have a shed now. And it looks better than my closet!!
With bonfire, they are OK for cold nights.
Which one is screaming Arthur? I want to meet him very much!!

Nice heritage units with an old(?) reliable H&HRR GP15.

You know what I'm going to say, right?
More pictures please!!!

Hi Dats

Yes, the hobos are all set up to battle the Winter cold with their little brick hut.  It also has a little stove in it, so they don't need to cook their baked beans over the camp fire.  You can see the glow from the stove through the hut's window.  I'm sure with six of them in residence, it's quite a squeeze to get everyone in there at one time!  Surely they take it in turns to sleep....?

Screaming Arthur is the one behind the bench, nearest to the privvy!  He got the nickname many years ago, when for a lark, some of his fellow hobos put a mouse under his blanket while he was asleep, and he wouldn't stop shrieking for an hour!  Even now, his mental stability is in question.

The MHRR use GP15-1 locos for their switching.  They are common up and down the railroad from Ohio to Colorado.  There are 39 of them still in MHRR service.  Another eleven are in storage.

Ha ha ha  :laughabovepost: good stuff, Andy!
I want to be just like screaming Arthur when I grow up.
I'll move to Cherry Valley when I retire.
My mental health is pretty similar with his. So I can fit in right away.

And you know what I'm going to say again right?
More _______ please!!

Holidays are coming, holidays are coming....

Nothing to do with Coca-Cola, I just wanted to post a photo of the Christmas train coming through Cherry Valley, passing the hobo camp.  The train made a special stop here and gave the hobos a bumper sized hamper, together with a cooking stove to go with the one they have in their hut.  There are no passenger coaches this year, as Amtrak are not sponsering the train this year.  Thankfully, Norfolk Southern and the MHRR have brought the train back for all the children and adults to get gifts off the MHRR.

This year, the locos are MHRR 182 as usual and NS Heritage Unit 1067.

Work on the second Cascade board is now almost complete.  I just need to put it on the wall now.  I hope it doesn't fall down on the layout below...

Hi Andy

Ahh, that time of the year already!
I see your two Christmas cars.
I miss watching your annual Christmas video, Andy.
No Amtrak this year? They didn't have any budget for excursion?

I'm looking forward to seeing Cascade progress report!!

Hi Andy, What is a "Bumper Sized Hamper"?

Here in the States, a Hamper is something you put dirty clothes in.

Remember what Bernard Shaw said "We are two peoples separated by a common language"  :smiley-laughing:  :laugh3:  :wave:

Cheers,
Rich S.

A "bumper sized hamper" in this instance refers to a large picnic basket full of nice food and drink for the hobos to enjoy, Rick.  Yessir!  Ed, Bill, Frank, Colin, Screaming Arthur and Old Jack will have a fine festive time this year!  Beats the usual baked beans from a tin anyway....

Hi guys

Just to let you know I have two new videos on my Youtube channel.

Montrose and Highland Railroad 41 :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jplbyygUviU&t=150s

Cascade 3 :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oz7o2NhzDZE&t=132s

Unfortunately, since Youtube scrapped their Editor program, I've struggled to produce a video, but I did want to put videos up before Christmas.

Let me know what you think.  One person has already remarked that even a rough and ready MHRR video is better than none at all.  What do you think?

Hi Andy

I liked semi- live videos!
A lot of good stuff there, Andy.
Cascade is progressing nicely. I'm glad that the 2nd board is successfully installed! No damage on Cherry Valley.

With M&HRR Christmas video, my holidays season is officially started!
Thank you for sharing wonderful videos!

Thanks Dats, that was a really great comment that you don't start the Christmas season without one of my videos!  Makes it seem worthwhile!

Merry Christmas to you.  I've a feeling this is going to be a good one....

Andy,

I always enjoy your videos with or without the Youtube editor.

Like you, I too would like an easy to use editor to add title pages, banners, splice clips etc. It's about time I extended myself beyond just putting up a simple clip.

And Merry Xmas, to you, Dats, and to the NGF members.
