Hello Arnold, 

I'm curious if you painted the trees in your background? They look great!

Always love your topics!

Thanks, Gerry. Yes, I painted them on the mountain, which I also painted, with acrylic paints.

What is important to know about painting a backdrop is that you can do it even if you have very little artistic talent like me. The key is to try it, and if you don't like it, when it dries paint over it until you like it. I painted those trees over and over at least 10 times until I came up with what I liked. I also like to get feedback from my wife, who has very good taste when it comes to art, music, etc. From my experience, most women have very good taste when it comes to art and music, so it is very helpful to get their feedback.

This is an old one. Train carrying a captured V2 rocket 1946 with some armor tanks to be used as targets to White Sands Proving Grounds testing site along with passenger car filled with support personal including engineers and scientist. Captured V2 rockets and parts were moved to testing sites from 45 to 55 as found and shipped to US shores. Approximately 70 V2s were shipped to the site moved by the railroad and then Military flatbeds.

sorry its a little out of focus. My first video made

Very nice.....have you changed your lighting for the videos of late?

Fendermain

Yes,  I have new LED bulbs (100 watt equivalent) in the dropped ceiling lights in basement play room, and another 100 watt equivalent LED with motion detector in laundery room. So light is substantially brighter than before.

Extra, extra, read all about it:

Beautiful...the improved lighting highlights the rich colors. Could you run your PW green GG1 on an upcoming video? I would like to acquire one this year.

Will do, Fendermain, will post it in 10 minutes.

Just got home from Trainstock 11 (NJ HiRailers Train Club Forum get together). What an enormous, mind blowing, spectacular O Gauge Club Layout! Forum members should do themselves a favor and see it. And the members of that club are even nicer than the layout.
