Thanks Peter! Always have a blast running trains on his layout.
That is some nicely done benchwork!
Chris I am with gunrunnerjohn, Looks so neat and really no wire! LOL I still have to get backunder my layout and do some rewiring and dressing up!
Great and safe for the daughter to play under the layout!
Great video Chris, I could watch it all day long! Do you have a link to your Youtube page?
Another entertaining and informative video, Chris. I shows that good video production is just as important as content to keep eyeballs happy. I made my first edited train video this year and it's a lot of fun to shoot and try to make something out of them. ( I don't want to hijack your thread, but I'll send a link if you are interested)
I also saw your hobo reference. Did you watch some Stobe the Hobo?
Chris, what a great idea! Its kind of like a review with out all the detail information. Just showing how the product runs! I could sit and watch all day if the CEO would let me!
Thanks @Alex M!
@mike g. thanks! I am terrified of doing a real product review as the online wolves will come after me for missing details. I like keeping it short, sweet and high level!
@Jay Francis, thank you! That is what I was going for so I am glad it came through in the video.
Now onto figuring out how to review power and control on the layout without a 10 minute shot of my transformer....
In the meantime, I made a short Channel Trailer that came out pretty well. Enjoy and Happy St Patricks Day!
Thanks Chris, I know the one on my profile says something different. I had to change it for notification. I wasn't getting any. I updated the one in my profile.
Chris, it's really nice to see your high value video production and excellent narration on the OGR forums. Your layout is amazing and it has me wondering how you managed a code variance to construct a great layout in a really nice room!
Keep up the good work and keep those vids a comin'.
Chris: Your analysis and testing of the new F3 on YouTube is extremely well done. I have been involved with a number of wireless control systems companies and have tested many of their systems. I am intrigued with the Menard's electronic wireless control system approach.
Thanks @BOB WALKER! There has been quite a bit of analysis of the Menards piece here on the forum. I had a blast with that engine and have still been enjoying it. I even took it into my local hobby shop so they could get a closer look. I was interested to see how Menards approached this in a similar way to the Lionchief products. I am curious to see what is next for them in this market.
Real Nice layout. Like the curve support structure.
As a former engineer, I just could not use the trestles to just support the FastTrack as you did.
This was my issue with using the older Lionel trestles to support old Lionel Track. My question was: What supports the track from trestle to trestle?; the track itself? Ordinarily, from a trestle to a trestle there would first be some sort of support structure; beams or a truss; then on top of that would be the track. FastTrack like any other track when used above a surface looks more real with a support structure under it. It's tricky to do under curved track.
I guess I could imagine that the material under the FastTrack is some sort of concrete slab that spans the trestles but its much too thin proportionally for the spans.
