Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

American Goods Trains Hauled By 5 To 10 Diesel Engines Is a Very Common View Seen By Any Local Rail Fans There.. But In India I Have Seen Maximum Number Of 4 loco’s Hauling a Goods Trains And Thats too Very Rare. I mean it was only once when i saw 4 electric loco’s hauling petrolium rakes. Otherwise 2 Engines view is somewhat common in india. This Video’s complete courtesy goes to Glenn Nahrwold… This is one of his fantabulous captures. That awesome BNSF freight action was taken at the local railfan´╗┐ hotspot located in Hesperia, California.

Accucraft WD Baldwin – Slow Summer Goods Train

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Some slow and some very slow running here as Roy Wood’s Baldwin, now fitted with single channel R/C on the regulator, hauls a rake of Binnie wagons loaded with coal and Portland stone. For the final section I have used half speed, which deepens the sound of the chuff and seems about right for this loco. My thanks to Roy for the smooth driving as usual.

Hornby Mixed Goods Model Railway

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

My first solo attempt of a model railway. I have the Hornby Mixed Goods DCC set which comes with two trains and 4 trucks. I have just finished building my baseboards (took about 3 weeks!) and I have an oval (3rd radius) with one siding. Would like to have a second oval and some more trains / trucks before I start with some grass, stones and a station.
