These video snipps were taken in May 2008 on the layout of my dad, Joe Schauer. He has a huge American Flyer / S gauge layout, but also dabbles in HO and Lionel and some G scale too. The first table models Stone Creek and St. Charles, Va. You may notice the Stone Face Rock! See also: www.youtube.com Steam ~ Diesel ~ American Flyer Milk Car
Question by 68-76: How long are mainline runs?
As a model railroader for what seems ‘genetic’, I wonder sometimes what its like to be an engineer pulling a long freight out on the mainline for a ‘run’.
When those horses are finally busted loose and the train gets on its way, what can an engineer expect?
Is he haulin’ for a while [time wise], and what would be considered ‘a while’ ?
How long do them horses run?
Are you rippin’ for several hours straight? Non-stop?
Answer by Derail On my first railroad, BNSF, the longest run in my district was from Fargo to Minot, North Dakota, which was 276 miles. I don’t know about the other railroads or other BNSF districts though. Now, my longest run is 130 miles.
