Since I find myself posting more short videos than pictures, always using my smartphone that is so convenient, it made sense to me to start this thread.

I will start us off with this Williams scale NY Central diesel and scale freight cars and caboose, which I rarely run on my long and narrow switching layout:

Now,  whenever you want, you can share your videos with your Forum friends, and also see their videos here. Arnold

Arnold and Fendermain, thanks for the footage.

Arnold weighs in as the forum video champion! 

always good to see your  footage. 

I will send videos when my layout is happening.

in the mean time I enjoy everyone's efforts.

have a good weekend.

Leroof     Good to hear from you and looking forward to seeing your work.   I hope you are still considering  overhead power as I may modify part of my layout next year with that in mind.

Operating catenary is one of the most challenging model railroad projects IMO. Thumbing through back issues of OGR magazine (I'm so glad I saved mine for about 30 years), there are excellent articles about it. Articles by Ron Zweig, Phil Klopp, Eliot Scher and Don Mcquaig come immediately to mind. Arnold

Arnold &  Fendermain, I know of the catenary models made by the experts as in OG railroading magazine. My basic catenary will re evolve once the basic layout is up. I am either looking into another table extension as the former layout, or daring to consider a second basic upper level, catenary included.   I have already cleaned and restored about half the catenary/telegraph posts.  I found that the only thing about catenary poles is one Must be Mindful when accessing the interior of said layout. Ask me how I know! Lol.  

Arnold, the video of crime paying is hysterical! I forgot about this accessory!

COASTSIDEKEVIN, great attic space postwar style  layout footage! 

Awesome topic as usual Arnold.

 

 

Arnold, In the last second of the thief in your video , where the video stops there appears a visual posssibility that the gantry crane might swing around and take out the perp! Stop that man! Radio the crane operator!  Lol.

running on train car roofs  is definitely a postwar activity. But, what the heck, crane interventions could be part of that!

 No, I am not stoned. Lol.

You got me laughing as usual.

Leroof,  I am particularly interested in your application as the prewar styled catenary/telegraph posts blend in with my theme. I am already planning on moving some items to allow room.

Great video Arnold.   I usually run short trains with pre/post war cars.   Here is a Kline GG1 with a longer train..modern easy rolling cars.

Fendermain

Hello Fendermain - from the sound, or lack of it, on your video, it sounds like your gateman is very quiet. Is he? Are you running him on DC? Or is the sound just covered up by the delightful clickety-clack rhythm of wheels hitting O gauge track joints?

GeoPeg   Thanks for asking...very quiet.  It is currently running with track voltage...insulated rail trigger.  Unlike some of my trackside devices, that one responds well to different voltages. I may go to soleniod activation fixed voltage with a wiring revamp next year. 

The sound provided by sectional tubular track is to me quite soothing.

Hey Arnold..possible topic..how do our forum members activate trackside devices.

Thanks for the input Arnold.   I will try do do some research on these.

Fendermain

Thank you all for your contributions, including the videos posted by Pat, Trussman, Jim, CoastsideKevin and Fendermain.

I believe model railroading is a dynamic, as opposed to a static, art form. Nancy Sinatra said "these boots are made for walking," and I say: "these trains are made for running." Other than being present while the trains are in action, a video best captures what our trains are made to do. Arnold
