Woo, look at it go!

I just set this up today. As you can see, it’s laid out on my futon.

This was taken by the immoveable webcam inside my iMac. This is as close as I could get it. The other option would be to take a video from my cellphone, which has poorer video quality.

Trains in Bealville and the Tehachapi Loop HD

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Watch in High Definition! After seeing the train at Tunnel 2, we continued on to Bealville. Tunnel 3 is just past Bealville and we stopped on the other end of Tunnel 3, at the site of collapsed Tunnel 4 to see the first train. Tunnel 4 collapsed during a 1952 earthquake.

After the train passes, the head end is seen exiting the nearly mile long tunnel 5 with a plume of smoke. The tunnel is so long that the

Toy Train Layout: American Flyer Reverse Loop Layout

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

This is a new American Flyer 9 X 5 layout. It has three connected loops and the inner loop can be used as a reverse loop. The layout is light and portable. It has no legs and simply sits on the ping pong table. Engines run on DC. Engines are American Flyer, American Models, and S-Helper. The loops are isolated and the polarity of each loop is independently controlled by DPDT (center off) switches.
