Yep, On30. The door is always open - if anyone is ever in the area stop by and run a train.

Re: Logging branch

That's a bit too much of a drive for me at the moment, being about 10 min out of Grand Rapids in Ada. May I ask where you get most of your engines and cars? I have been debating getting into that scale, but I haven't been able to find many resources. I know a guy in Maryland that sells the locos/ca...

Hot Wheels Video Racer. But I think there are point/shoot cameras out there today that are much better. The sound on my camera is terrible.

Re: Cab Ride videos

Awesome, Hogger! Have your layouts ever been in Model Railroader or another publication? Do you plan your layout on paper before building it? Thanks. My previous layout (Clinch Valley) was in the Sept 2009 issue of MR in Tony Koesters column. I just give a rough idea of what I want to do on paper (...

Since I had to clean up the layout in preparation of some op sessions this week, I thought it would be a good time to do a photo tour of the part with scenery

With the logging branch about done, time to get back to work on main level scenery
