I got the tour bus at York from one of the diecast dealers. Looked at the bottom and it's made by the "Open Tour Bus Company"! Makes sense.
Didn't realize the hunter had made it into the video. Now I have to get him to sign a release form!!! But, then again, maybe not, if you could see how his day is going to take a turn for the worse very soon!
I sent the Homies out into the woods with an ax, singing, "I'm a lumberjack, and I'm OK". Lucky they all made it back. But, I do have a message on my answering machine from the local forest ranger.
I love that Shay, Jim! I have one of those little buggers (West Side Lumber) and relatively soon will have 42" curves to run it on. Also recently acquired a K-Line Shay with the same road name, but have yet to give it a test run. Also awaiting the MTH Climax set with PS3.
Most of all, I like that Alaska RR caboose you show in that segment, Jim! It would look very good with the Alaska SW1500 I'm picking up tomorrow.
Nice video Jim, I really like my Paul Bunyan shay now that it will pull cars on 031 with the adapter added. Enough so that I am adding a third level to the extension of the layout just for it with a lumber camp and logging operation.
Model railroading in mythical "Peach Hollow, VA!"
Any day you wake up on the upside of the dirt is a good day!
Allan, you sound like you're trying to get one of each of the items in the catalog!
Sometimes it sure feels like that is the case. The big-ticket buying is winding down, though. I have literally run out of space. I'm trying to do something with my On30 trains now--on a small scale--and that layout is taking up all the space on my dining room table at the present time until I get it far enough along to transfer it into the bedroom. Bachmann E-Z Command DCC system for that layout arrived today.
But when it comes to buying trains, a whole lot of folks here have me beat.
Combining a tripod with scale speed makes for an enjoyable and realistic shot.
Makes all the difference in the world, doesn't it? A tripod in the photo equipment inventory is an absolute "must" for model photography as far as I am concerned, and operating trains at somewhat realistic speeds truly adds to the "credibility" of the action in videos.
Good choice... That's on my short-list of purchases too. I had my eye on that jewel when it was re-catlg'd in 2010 or 2011. And then bang... MTH ran into its factory troubles in China. Hopefully we'll see that sweet gem soon though.
