I often get requests to see more of my layout and how it operates. This video, the longest and most complex that I’ve ever attempted, is the response. In the previous two videos, you’ve seen some of my Pennsy power moving around passenger cars. In this video, you get to see all three models of the K4s Pacific-type steamers (#1737 = prewar, slotted pilot, early decoration; #5400 – prewar, slotted pilot, later decoration; #1361 = postwar, solid pilot) moving between mainline tracks in order to form a triple-header that is used to haul all of my seventeen heavyweight passenger cars. The K4s was Pennsy’s premier passenger hauler and in real life, for a train of this size, you would have seen at least a double-header and quite possibly a triple-header. This True HD 1080p video is made up of 14 segments that I’ve edited together with captions as well as explanatory scrolling credits at the beginning and end (you don’t want to know how many times I actually had to shoot things before I got them kind of the way I wanted). As you can see in this 10 minute long video, the K4s that I converted from PS1 to PS2 is functionally the same as the other two models that originally came with PS2. All operations were performed using DCS remote control. Putting this one together was a lot of work and I hope that you enjoy it. Please visit my web site — www.toytrains1.com — for lots more videos and photos of both real and model trains.
