Realistic crossing makes way for heavy NS Intermodal @ Springfield show (Southern New England)

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Crossing signals by Custom Signals, www.customsignals.com This video shows the full sequence of the very realistic operating railroad crossing on the Southern New England model railroad, a group from Gardner, Mass., as it makes way for a high-priority Norfolk Southern Intermodal train. The train consists of a four-unit lashup of NS diesels with Dash 8-40C 8670 on the point, and a lengthy double-stack intermodal, as it passes over the fully-detailed and fully-operating grade crossing. The double-stack train, like the layout, looks fantastic. The crossing signals feature working gates, lights, and bells. They are also the most realistic-looking signals I’ve seen. This layout also includes operating track signals along the right-of-way. This modular layout is O-scale (2-rail modeling), or 1:48th scale. Recorded at the 2011 Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, MA.

HD video: Very realistic model railroad with awful track .wmv

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

The footage shows awful track – that works! – on a model railroad featuring 90’s era CSX. Two main segments are shown – handlaid yard trackage, and a mainline attempt at realistic jointed rail. The layout is a small one on an outdoor porch, so when you hear the sound of crickets in the mix, that is actually real. All of the trackage, scenery, equipment, and weathering was last worked on some 6 years ago, when I was in my teens. The layout has actually been dormant for 6 years with stuff stored on top and cats sleeping on the foliage. I revived it to take a record of the best portions. Most of the yard tracks are handlaid n-scale rail on tiny wooden ties, with ample kinks. The yard lead and siding are even more deliberately designed to cause trouble. I put cardboard shims under the middle 30′ ft. of each scale 40′ ft section of rail, and then spiked the joints down to create the characteristic bowed effect of poorly maintained jointed rail. You’ll notice that this is done with N-scale rail on a curved piece of track that heads into a curve switch – I have no idea how the trains stay on the track! The joints are more pronounced on the siding track shown at the end of the video, which is laid with cut 40’scale code 83 rail laid on plastic ties. I intended to film the manifest leaving and some more switching, but ran out of time. Hopefully next time I visit I can capture some more. This video is incredibly misleading about the overall railroad, though, as it is really the
