This video features Norfolk Southern woodchip train 66E as it traverses the combined Sipping and Switching Society of North Carolina and Ohio Valley Sipping and Switching Society HO scale modular layout at the NMRA Piedmont Division train show on March 13th and 14th. This weekend was the first time that the two groups combined modules into one layout. Prior to this weekend, these modules had never been within 500 miles of each other, but they were 100% compatible! The train features two atlas Dash-8 series locomotves and one Blueline SD40-2, all with DCC and Sound, and the cars are by LBF, Huberts, and Walthers. I followed the train around about half of the layout, and the names of the individual modules are displayed before each clip. Also featured are meets with five other trains on the double main line. I would like to thank Joe Balint and Rick Mattar for contributing some cars to the train. Sorry about some of the wobbling, I don’t have a tripod and was also controling the train at the same time. There is also some background noise, but it can’t be but so quiet inside a train show! Enjoy! Video Rating: 4 / 5
Maine Garden Railway Society sponsored a 50 day long Train Display at the Maine Mall in South Portland Nov 13, 2010 to Jan 2, 2011. 50 Members volunteered to operate the layout which entertained thousand of people and help introduce them to G scale trains. Bringing back the days of big Department Stores train exhibits the layout 32 x 24 operated 5 trains on two levels and was greatly appreciated by the public.
