Going well thanks, Andy.

Though we are going into summer and some hot days ahead I'm sure. Luckily, I've got air con in my railway room which makes it a nice place to be any time of the year.

For some reason, CP has not purchased any of the tier 4 GEVOs though it has stacks of the previous GEVOs namely the ES44ACs and AC4400s. One of the former appears in your little video. However, CP locos are sometimes seen together with UP locomotion (as your film clip shows) so perhaps I have an excuse to buy a UP ScaleTrains tier 4 GEVO also. I do like them.

I can vouch for the fact that Webbo's railway room is a top place to be, summer or winter!  :thumbsup:

Hi Andy, Are we ever going to see an update from the Montrose and Highland Railroad? Did you see my railroad video on DJ's Trains YouTube Channel?


Cheers,
Rich S.

Hi Rich

I love your layout Mate!  It looks a lot of fun, and would be great for chilling out!  How do you find that Bachmann loco?  Looks like they've improved a lot since I last bought one.

I don't know about the MHRR videos.  I still don't like the video processing software I had.  I obviously didn't understand it properly as I lost some of my film, when I tried to make a new one in February, and it put me off.

I enjoy your videos and would encourage you to make more even if the software is sub optimal.

Thank you for that Webbo, I really appreciate your kind words.  I did think about filming all my future videos in one take.  The only problem is that they will be very rough and ready.   The worst thing Youtube did for me was to get rid of their video editor.  That program meant even the dumbest film maker (me) could produce videos, but for some reason known only to themselves, they deleted it.

I've emailed them three times to have it put back, and have not even had the courtesy of a reply from them.

Hi Andy, I find the "New" Bachmann Spectrum steamers run very well, although one of my K4's is a little bit of a growler, but the slow speed is very good. Steer clear of the older Bachmann Steam locomotives, they are real hit and miss and you never know when you're going to get a lemon.  Thank you Andy for the kind words on my little Hollow Core Door layout. Two things in it's favor, it's small size allows for easy maintenance and I tried to make it generic enough to allow it to represent multiple roads and eras.

P&WV


P&LE


Ann Arbor


PRR


N&W


WM




As you can tell I do not have just one favorite prototype or era, so the problem for me was creating a layout that was suitable for different roads and different eras. When I get board with one railroad or era, I can change to another, which often means a different operating plan as well. And yes there are times when I just like to sit back and watch the train tick off the miles, kind of like train spotting or rail fanning in N scale.

Andy, I agree 100% with Webbo, I enjoy your videos and although you may not have the best editing software and the video maybe a little ruff around the edges, please still post your videos. Has there been any progress on your Cascade route, don't tell anyone but I'm also a fan of the Burlington Northern. Darn now that I've said it, it looks like the Long Valley will have to get some more BN equipment  :smiley-laughing: 



Cheers,
Rich S.

Wow Guys!  I'm choked up!

I know Dats is a huge fan of my videos, but I didn't realise how much they are enjoyed by others.  Right, I'll try and get a new one out there very soon for you all!

By the way Rich, it's funny you should mention "Cascade".  About a month ago, I altered the trackplan in the yard, and changed the operations in it, so that trains come down to Cascade yard from Apple Yard or Wenatchee.  Once switching is done at Ruffield Fruit Processors and Berwick Cement, the rest of the train is reversed, and continues back the way it came, but down a different spur to switch the other three industries.  I like this idea better. 

I have put the cement works building at the rear of the board now, and I like that better.  Guess I'd better do a new "Cascade" video too!

Who needs a video editing software!
You did it again, Captain Andy!!
I enjoyed it enormously as usual!
Your modelling quality speaks itself!
This is the first time I heard the sound equipped engine on MHRR.
How do you like to operate with the sound engine?
Did it increase the enjoyment of running a train?
My Bachmann loco has an electrical pickup problem too.
I don't know how to fix it. :dunce:

I'm impressed about the static grass on MHRR.
Was it difficult to apply?
I'm also interested in a graphite stick method.
Please show me how you use it on the next video.
I'm so glad that you're producing videos once again.
Oh yes, please don't forget to show me an exceptionally good Layout which sitting above of the MHRR!!

I'll go back to watch it again now.
Thank you very much for giving me inspirations!!

Thank you Andy. I enjoy your videos and I think the shorter videos are just fine. I do hope you continue making videos on both the Montrose and Highland Railroad and the Cascade.

I'm looking forward to your next video update.

Cheers,
Rich S.

For Captain Andy:
Oh no no no. ;)
2 hours or longer videos please. :admiration:
I can watch a MHRR video for 5 hours straight non stop! :tv:
But the end, I agree with Rich. Ultimately the length doesn't matter.
I just want to see more of your modeling work.
Modelling hard for me please. :-*
