Hi Andy, Very nice video and ops session. Woo Hoo, the Uncle Pete with the state cars even had a caboose.  :thumbsup:  What kind of derailment caused the Reading heritage unit to end up on the roof of "Big Bird" aka Giant Eagle? You better evacuate the building and someones is going to pay dearly for this mishap  :smiley-laughing:  Did they fire that dispatcher for trying to send poor Lachie in the CN unit through a switch not properly lined?  :laugh3: Andy, it looks like you guys had a great time, I'm looking forward to your next video (hint, hint) we need an update on the Cascade route  :D

Cheers,
Rich S.

LOL!!!  Thanks for your comments Rich; I've left my responses under the video!

Not much to report on Cascade right now, although I hope to do some more on the layout before too much longer, and of course I'll post a new video on Youtube when I have something to report.

Another Home-Run video from Captain Andy!!
Very nice to see different view angles on MHRR.
Until now, I didn't know that All-aboard Diner has Tuesday deal.
It looks like operated a lot of trains with Lachie.
Dose he have a layout too?
How long was the Op session?
Hopefully I can see next video soon!

Hi guys

I am literally amazed so many people enjoy my layout.  Compared to some of those Youtube layouts, mine is one which anyone can aspire to! 

I've been experimenting with different angles with my photographs and videography, Dats, just so that I can catch you out!!!!  As for the "All you can eat Tuesday" sign on the diner, I had a word with Denny McDonald, the proprietor.  He said

"We have an offer every Tuesday at the diner, where everyone can come and enjoy one of our fabulous culinary meals, and then go out onto the old platform and watch the trains.  What could be better than that?  (Minimum spend $15)"

I think they put that banner on the side of the diner that nobody usually sees, for a reason....

Lachie and I did have a great time.  We spent just under three hours in the shed, but some of that was doing a decoder install, and some maintenance.  Lachie admits to being a "newbie" in model railroading, but I think he is being very modest.  He has a shed layout too, and has just finished a new board, tracklaying and ballasting.  He already has a nice collection of locomotives.

We have MHRR 49 next, which I have an idea for, but what about 50?  I want to mark this episode with something special, but I'm not sure what to do about that.  Does anyone have any ideas, what they'd like to see in MHRR 50?

Let me know.

Hi Andy, Do you have any photos and older videos of the M&H going back to day 1? You could do a retro video, where you show what each area of he layout originally looked like and how that area looks today. I think that would be neat to see then and now videos put together into one video with you describing the changes that have taken place. Something to think about for M&H 50?

 
Cheers,
Rich S.

Another great video Andy, thank you!

And I totally agree with what you have to say about the Closet Branch. Dats replicates the feel of a scruffy run down railroad yard in dusty warm conditions perfectly.

Merry Christmas to all

Hi Webbo

You've summed how I feel about Dats' layout perfectly!  I just wish he realised how good his layout is!  In the last video, I love how Santa stops the train to take a look at the used cars in the lot!!!!

Fantastic update!!
A new locomotive has a nice paint scheme. 
Nice to see a lease unit working on MHRR!
You're an expert of finding great deals, Andy!
Please make a longer video.  :admiration:
I'd like to see more of your modelling work!!  :beers:

Thanks Andy!
Nice to see your plans and to see Lachie’s layout in action. (Nice to see the CN unit in stripes. One of my favourite paint schemes)

Lachie's layout is what I call a "Roundie Roundie" layout.  You probably know what I mean when I call it that.  We sat there for five hours just watching his and my trains going by, swapping locos every now and then; some of his and some of mine.  It flew by!

Anyone who is not into model railways would find this impossible to believe.  But that's how it was!  Sometimes I wish my layout was "roundie roundie" but then I know how much fun I have with operations on it.

Lachie's CN Geep is a little beast!  I think that long after all the other locos are worn out, this one will still be going strong!

Another great video!
I apologize for my tardy response.
Thank you very much for opening my pizza store.
It came out fantastic!
I'm sure that the store will be popular among train crews and people in town if I can resist to eat those pizzas for myself.  :laugh3:
There is a big chance that the pizzas are "Packman" shape for every orders because at least one slice will disappear into my tummy before selling them and I'll gain 30 lb. weight in 3 days.  :doh:

I didn't notice that the road to Morning Harvest disappeared to nowhere.
I think it's a clever way to model it on our limited space.
I also impressed with Lachie's layout.
And you're right! It's something about this "roundie" track arrangement.
It definitely has therapeutic effects!
Please say hello to him for me.

Always enjoyable to see a Master modeller refining his layout!
Very inspiring indeed!!
I'm looking forward to seeing next video!!

Ha ha ha ha!!!!  Master modeller!!!!  Ha ha ha ha!!!!!  Can't see me picking up any NMRA awards for my efforts.  Still if it's good enough to entertain people and myself, it's a success!

I have made a good start on sorting out the Cherry Valley area.  Two switches and track replaced.  Now I'll concentrate on the Morning Harvest sidings.
