  • HO Scale: Norfolk and Western #611

    Filmed 10/10/15 Here's some of what was filmed last weekend out at the club with Chris again manning the throttle while I filmed the trains. This time we pulled Dad's Broadway Lmtd. N&W 611 and shot it on a couple freight runs. Dad has the passenger train for it at home, I think some of the cars need some adjustments, so in their absence we hooked it up to a couple freights. Which the Js did pull near the end of their careers as diesel's took over. This HO scale model is impressive, and bloody powerful too. The coal train was all weighted and with the addition of the old N&W caboose, the 611 pulled that train around the layout almost like it wasn't even there. The even larger manifest it pulled after the coal, was even more impressive. Around 65 cars, plus the caboose and two tende...

  • HO Scale: UP Steam with all new ScaleTrains Water Tenders!

    Filmed 06/11/16 I started modeling the Union Pacific back in the early 90s. Afterwards, maybe 2 - 3 years later I got my first brand new UP 844, a Rivarossi model that was considered back then to be the best on the market. But then, Italians are known for making super nice stuff. I started putting together my excursion train and eventually got brand new Rivarossi Challenger, the 3985 of course. Had to kitbash the box car to get something even remotely close, and the power car also had to be kitbashed. Then the tail car needed to be opened up with a platform. More kitbashing. Plus the fact I had to paint and decal everything. There was still a problem. Begin rant; this problem would continue for more than twenty years. No one (other than ungodly expensive brass models) made any ...

    The "United States Exploring Expedition" was an exploring and surveying expedition of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding lands conducted by the United States from 1838 to 1842. The original appointed commanding officer was Commodore Thomas ap Catesby Jones. Funding for the original expedition was requested by President John Quincy Adams in 1828, however, Congress would not implement funding until eight years later. In May 1836 the oceanic exploration voyage was finally authorized by Congress and created by President Andrew Jackson.

    Sorry for a long video and no music or anything, just some raw footage of the events unfolding. I saw clouds of smoke billowing across the field so flew the DJI Phantom 4 to investigate! What I thought initially was someone burning tyres, turned out to be a workshop where potentially Biodiesel and 1000L IBC tanks of Methanol had caught fire! The roof of the building contained asbestos which also caught fire and spread across the building. There are gaps in the footage where I had to change battery. I then was requested to the scene so I could start providing live aerial images to the Fire Chief and Environmental officers which meant they could assess the area from above without having to get close as there were lots of gas bottles inside used for welding which could have exploded.

  • At Sea On The USS Orion (AS-18)

    The USS Orion was a submarine tender that was in the U.S. Naval Fleet from 1943 to 1993. At the time that she was decommissioned she was the oldest active ship in the Naval Fleet. I served on her from 1977-80. The Orion was a great ship to serve on. This video is of a cruise taken after finishing overhaul in Norfolk, Virginia. We were heading back to our home port of Charleston, S.C. Family members were allowed to travel with us on this cruise. In the film, which was shot on Super 8mm, you will see a young boy. He was the son of one of our crew members.

    A major part of your cruising lifestyle will be spent using your tender. In many of the cruising areas in the tropics, marinas are few and far between, so you will be reliant on a good sturdy dinghy for multiple shore runs. In this episode Em Bower considers choice of tender, stowage and the ways in which it can be used, from laying a kedge anchor to towing a boat or as a tug to help get into tight marina berths.

As soon as the operator gets confirmation that the boat can't fit, he opens the bridge. He starts by blowing the warning horn three times to alert pedestrians and traffic to clear the bridge. Then, the gates go down to prevent traffic from proceeding, then, he unlocks the leafs of the bridge and raises them to about 20 degrees open on either side. The captain of the vessel says he's through, and the operator lowers the bridge, locks it in place, and opens the gates again. Once traffic starts to proceed through again, we take a look out the other side of the shanty and see Walk Bridge, whic...

Filmed 10/10/15 Here's some of what was filmed last weekend out at the club with Chris again manning the throttle while I filmed the trains. This time we pulled Dad's Broadway Lmtd. N&W 611 and shot it on a couple freight runs. Dad has the passenger train for it at home, I think some of the cars need some adjustments, so in their absence we hooked it up to a couple freights. Which the Js did pull near the end of their careers as diesel's took over. This HO scale model is impressive, and bloody powerful too. The coal train was all weighted and with the addition of the old N&W caboose, the 611 pulled that train around the layout almost like it wasn't even there. The even larger manifest it pulled after the coal, was even more impressive. Around 65 cars, plus the caboose and two tenders, just like the real ones, she struggled a little bit getting the train moving, but once it was going, the 4-8-4 barely broke a sweat. Sound is factory, and as it turns out, the whistle sounds an awful lot like Union Pacific's 844. Chris even mentioned that while he was running it. This might make N&W/611 purists cringe, but after the real 611 hit the rails this passed summer after her restoration, there was a dispute during the restoration that the guy who owns 611's original whistle didn't like, and refused to let them put it back on. So they had to use a similar sounding 3 chyme UP whistle. Yes folks, unless that's changed, when you go see 611 at track side now, when she blows her whistle, it's a UP whistle you're hearing. We did shoot some more stuff this day, but I'm going to use that footage at a later time. This video I just wanted to focus on the 611. I'm not sure what I'll be posting Wednesday, but I have a few options to choose from. Stay tuned and we'll see you then. Thanks for watching!

Filmed 06/11/16 I started modeling the Union Pacific back in the early 90s. Afterwards, maybe 2 - 3 years later I got my first brand new UP 844, a Rivarossi model that was considered back then to be the best on the market. But then, Italians are known for making super nice stuff. I started putting together my excursion train and eventually got brand new Rivarossi Challenger, the 3985 of course.

Plus the fact I had to paint and decal everything. There was still a problem. Begin rant; this problem would continue for more than twenty years. No one (other than ungodly expensive brass models) made any water tender for the Union Pacific. Bachmann made water tenders for the Norfolk and Western 611, which could sorta pass as a tender for the Southern Pacific 4449 if repainted into the SP Daylight Scheme (something I did do btw). But no, no one made anything for the very railroad that made steam excursions a thing. Oh, and I wasn't the only one waiting. Many, many more were waiting also. So many thousands of people just itching to literally hurl their money at any manufacturer who decided to produce them. So that others might better understand, and since I'm from Kansas City, I'm using the Royals as the example. But imagine no one ever producing a #5 George Brett jersey. Not one. Ever. Then all of a sudden, after 20 some years someone with a brain FINALLY shows up and does it. When Athearn did their two unit turbine models that included tenders (though the body was incorrect, many who managed to get some settled on them for their excursion trains), but Athearn was asked if they would ever produce the proper tenders for the steamers. They flat out said "No." KATO then produced them a couple years ago for N scale, and they sold a ton of them. I asked KATO if they would please consider doing them in HO, "We'll look into it." -_- Well guess what... Athearn, KATO, you lost out. You lost a sale... actually, you lost MANY sales. Over 20 years worth of sales. Way to go. This is when ScaleTrains popped up on the scene. It's founders, coming from Athearn no less, did something smart and asked modelers what they most wanted to see produced. Well, the modelers spoke and about the biggest no brainer is now in my, and many others, possession after so many years of waiting. ScaleTrains, thank you. You guys are great. And if you're looking for more ideas, UPP 2066 (the "domed" generator car) and the Idaho, UPP 203, or any of their inspection cars would be well sought after too. :D All right, more railfanning coming up on Wednesday's upload, then next Sunday's video should be some N scale. Finally getting the chance to go back out to Rodney's again today, so be looking for that a week from today.

The "United States Exploring Expedition" was an exploring and surveying expedition of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding lands conducted by the United States from 1838 to 1842. The original appointed commanding officer was Commodore Thomas ap Catesby Jones. Funding for the original expedition was requested by President John Quincy Adams in 1828, however, Congress would not implement funding until eight years later. In May 1836 the oceanic exploration voyage was finally authorized by Congress and created by President Andrew Jackson. The expedition is sometimes called the ""U.S. Ex. Ex."" for short, or the ""Wilkes Expedition"" in honor of its next appointed commanding officer, United States Navy Lieutenant Charles Wilkes. The expedition was of major importance to the growth of science in the United States, in particular the then-young field of oceanography. During the event, armed conflict between Pacific islanders and the expedition was common and dozens of natives were killed in action, as well as a few Americans. In May 1828, the United States Congress, after prodding by President John Quincy Adams, voted to send an expedition around the world with the understanding that the country would derive great benefit. It was to promote commerce and to offer protection to the heavy investment in the whaling and seal hunting industries, chiefly in the Pacific Ocean. Congress also agreed that a "public ship" or ships should be used. At the time, the only ships owned by the government capable of such a circumnavigation were those of the navy. So, in fact, Congress had decided that a naval expedition be authorized. The veteran US Sloop-of-war "Peacock" was decommissioned and broken down in 1827 to rebuilt as USS "Peacock" , intended as an exploration ship. There were to be many unforeseen impediments and it was not until May 18, 1836, that an act was passed, which authorized funding, and approved by President Andrew Jackson, Adams' political rival. Even with the burden of finance lifted, there were another two years of alteration of formation and command before six oddly assorted ships moved down from Norfolk to Hampton Roads on August 9, 1838. On August 17, after being joined by the tenders "Sea Gull" and "Flying-Fish" which delivered Lieutenant Wilkes final orders and at 15:00 on 18 August the vessels weighed anchor. Due to light breezes the expedition did not discharge their pilots until 09:00 August 19 when they passed Cape Henry Light. By 11:00 the small fleet was standing to open seas.
