New releases of aux water tenders in several road names
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 ...
Trying out one of the latest UK mods to be released. Small but still enjoyable. Get the mod here: http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/21366-norfolk-and-suffolk-uk-mod-released/
Apologies for the tripod movement noise, need to get a mount for my new mic.
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...
Coupling the tender to the engine on 7/9/2016. There are three bars between engine and tender, the middle one, which had the greased pin inserted into it is the main drawbar, and the two side ones are safety links in case of failure of the main drawbar. The tender is moved by an atlas bar between wheel and rail visit www.92squadron.co.uk
Major scoop! The Brighton Belle, well off course, spotted passing Weybourne in Norfolk aided by the latest in diesel traction, due to the lack of third rail. The irate driver hurls abuse at the signalman, telling him where to stick his single line token, and disappears off in a southerly direction in search of Sussex.
Rob England, our friend and associated Builder and Projects consultant has been busy chasing steam trains around the country as is his passion, so here is some of his latest work . First is Bittern 60019 blasting Brookmans Park /Welham Green for first ever A4 main line run with two tenders in preservation. The train is "The Brighton Belle". Next at The Great Central Railway 48305 and light engine Ivatt 76019 followed by 70013 Oliver Cromwell on Harringworth viaduct and on its way to York from Victoria via Bedford. 60019 Bittern on its run to Doncaster 3 weeks befor the 2 tender run. A short visit to the Dean Forest Railway at Norchard High Level with9681, Tangmere at speed through Welham Green and Oliver Cromwell at speed on the Midland main line heading north and returning from York at...

Filmed 03/23/16 OK, I have no clue how this is going to sound on YouTube. I'm in Joplin, MO right now, it's after 1:30am and I'm not able to hook my laptop up to my surround system to see if there's any bass. But, this is the new "Rolling Thunder" sound system by Broadway Limited. The 2-8-8-2 steamer in this one belongs to Dad. He got it earlier this year, but had to send it back to BLI due to a bad decoder. I know, nothing man made is perfect, sometimes things aren't made quite right. But this is also a $600 locomotive... hopefully it was just a fluke. But he got it back within 3 weeks from BLI, which I admit, greatly impresses me. Three week turnaround for a model... that's fast. So good job there BLI. This was filmed within a week of him getting it back from the manufacturer....
A visit to the Norfolk & Western in the early 1950s was like a scene from Jurassic Park: prehistoric beasts romping in their natural mountain habitat. At a time when other roads were letting their remaining steam engines rot away and giving them minimal service in dirty, dingy, soon-to-close facilities, the N&W was still running a first-class steam operation and even building new power. With its main line through some of the nation’s richest coalfields, it was still betting on the future of steam; as late as 1955, the N&W didn’t roster a single diesel. The majority of traffic was handled by what N&W fans call the “holy trinity of steam”: the massive Y6 2-8-8-2; the articulated greyhound Class A; and the N&W’s glamour girl, the streamlined Class J.

#N&W #NScale #railroad #Bachmann This is a model of the famous N&W No. 611, that is in Virginia. Bachmann did a nice job with the paint and basic details on this model.

U.S. Navy submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS-40) deploys from Guam for the first time in 14 years, and dolphins jump (a sign of good luck for mariners). The USS Cable has over 500 Sailors and civilian personnel aboard and is underway for the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. Filmed on June 6, 2016. Film Credits: SCPO Paul Cage
An eastbound BNSF mixed freight train passes the Amtrak station in Ottumwa, Iowa on April 27, 2015. The second and third cars on the train are flatcars carrying the tenders for steam locomotive Reading 2100. The first one is the steam engine's original fuel and water tender. The second one is the auxiliary water tender. The group American Steam Railroad is having 2100 moved to Cleveland, Ohio to be restored to operation: http://www.fireup2100.org/. This mixed freight is the H-LINGAL1-25. That means it's a high priority train (H) from Lincoln, Nebraska (LIN) to Galesburg, Illinois (GAL) that had a scheduled departure for the 25th (25). I'd later see this train again on the other side: https://youtu.be/pCUepL3ffZ8. H-LINGAL1-25 engines: BNSF 8242 GE ES44C4 BNSF 4119 GE C44-9W
