Lionel will be releasing a caboose equipped with a WiFi video camera that streams live video from the cupola. What additional components will I need to receive the video image from either my laptop or desktop computer as well as my television set? Thanks for the help.
Finally got things cleaned up enough to shoot a short video showing the progress. Decided to narrate to describe the layout design so that you don't have to try and figure out what I decided to build... The whole layout has been built in irregular shaped modules which can be taken apart and moved.... Yes it's alot more work building it and wiring it this way, but I seriously doubt I will be able to start another layout from scratch.... So far, it's worked out well, the engine service...
I have a separate thread going about a crawlspace layout I am considering. Related to that, I would like to place multiple IP cameras around the layout and view the feeds on a single monitor at the head of the layout. Anyone know a simple way to rig this up? I was thinking a home security camera package would do the trick without the need to include a PC. Maybe there's an older set that has dropped in price? I would prefer wired setup, there is enough wireless radiation in my life. Hoping to...
Saw this years ago (before there was a place here where it wouldn't be offtopic), just found it this morning again: As the description says, "model train without model railroad" And lest you think he only runs "train set" consists up there: Here's a cab ride that illustrates just how minimalistic the suspended trackage really is. According to the owner's answer to a comment in the video below, it's 4mm stainless steel circular rod, attached to plexiglass "ties" with superglue. He bent the...
This new video shows a clever O-gauge, 3-train, 3-rail layout built by a Ridgely, Maryland gentleman named Talley Ober. Talley’s layout uses the “insulated rail” method to automatically control 3 “Thomas the Tank Engine” locos running on the SAME loop of track — using NO relays nor electronics. It just uses 2 simple “insulated rail" type "Control Blocks", which control 2 "Stop Blocks". One wire connects each Control Block to its corresponding Stop Block, so there is a total of 2 "Control...
I would say that it is certainly 'staged'. In this frame, the 'leg' appears to be from a person sitting on the front of the locomotive. But the 'leg' also appears to be very insubstantial. More likely a shoe affixed to a pole, or even a piece of string. In this frame, the 'leg' has moved a considerable distance rearwards, without any aparenr movement of the possible other 'leg' on the locomotive, and appears to be even skinnier than in the earlier frame. Also, I would think that if he had...
I think it's staged. I, for one would not be standing that close to the rails with an oncoming train seconds away. He seems entirely too casual about the notion. I agree with Nicole, it's unlikely that he would still be standing after such a strike. He also doesn't appear that surprised by it. I also question the reach of ones leg from a moving train. Whole thing is a bit of a stretch.
The blue and yellow make me think of Canada's Via Rail...?? Note that it appears to not be a "train" but a locomotive with no cars. The Washington Post article says the guy claims it was taken in Peru. That's possible, they may have paid the crew in some remote area to do the "shoe on a stick" routine. It could be volunteers at some historical museum or something.
There has been some chatter on some the forums asking if the www.RailroadBackdrops.com backdrops are ad durable as we say they are. Yes they are waterproof, yes you can wash them with most household cleaners, yes they are alcohol and scenery cement proof....but....can they really hold up to plaster? Here is a link to our new youtube video from scenery expert Peter Lloyd-Lee of www.CustomModelScenery.com showing just how durable our backdrops are https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txVjiMfblXo
Lots of things have been going on. The club has installed the MTH DCS WiFi system, added an extension that wraps around the entire O gauge room, and done some preparatory scenery work. We also received a few donated Weaver locomotives (not in this video) that we will hopefully soon be upgrading to TMCC or DCS. In the near future: an update featuring some of the scenery work done around the club, and maybe a cab ride around the entire layout.
For those lucky enough to have gotten their hands on the newly released CSX AC6000's (20-20825-1, 20-20826-1, 20-20827-1) from the 2017 Volume 2 Catalog, can you please attach an audio or video clip of the locomotive running? The sound file is not yet accessible on MTH's website.

Michael, enjoyed your Railtown video so much, I had to re-watch it twice. That's a nice operation at Railtown. Also enjoyed your "dear & turkey" and "rain, thunder, and hail" videos. Thanks for posting. Ray.
