I love it, Super! Great to see a new video from you.

Fantastic!! Great theme and I love all the Tankers. I was so close to scoring a white EF60 this morning but passed on it, I may still try and get it though, love the look of that one. Big Grin

Re-watching this video for the third time, and without kids to pester me, I really got to appreciate some of the details. Watching Galaxy Express 999 in regular freight service gave me a chuckle. I imagine some hard nose yard master saying “I don’t care if it IS a starship, I’ve got tank cars to haul and schedules to meet!”

The opening shot reminds me of what a sexy little beast the 8620 SL really is. It can also haul an admirable number of tankers, which is something I had not appreciated before.

I think I saw a C58 in there, which I always think is cool, and it was nice to see the unusual green and gold DE10 as well.

Nice Job! I think now it needs a new 2nd level layout. Angel

LOL...I have slowly been removing the upper levels...or are you referring to another Layout upstairs?

Over your existing layoutBig Grin
You can probably add tables above your layout and build another scenery.
And your back will probably thank you too. Big Grin

I meant to add, that version of “When The Saints Come Marching In” stirred my latent N’Awlinian soul. I doubt I’ll ever live there again but like the old saying goes, you can take the boy out of the place but can’t take the place out of the boy!

A couple of short videos, the first being The Minions Talking Train on the Disney Layout and the second is the previously Posted in another Thread, Thomas's Round and Round Bridge Set.

Very cool Super!! That Disney Layout looks Awesome. Love the Minions incorporated throughout too. Big Grin


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Off The Rails - 02-16-2018

Great videos Super! I have a feeling my kids will love the Minion train video and I really enjoyed the second video with the bridge too! Maybe it’s the soundtrack making me feel homesick for N’Awlins.


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Super - 02-16-2018

Thank you OTR, I am getting the feeling that you were raised in New Orleans?


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Off The Rails - 02-17-2018

I’m not a born native but I spent a fair amount of time there as a teen and lived there for many years. I still have a lot of connections to the city and surrounding area. It’s all rose colored nostalgia thought because, to be honest, I’d probably never live there again.


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Super - 02-17-2018

Do those "connections" and "nostalgia" have anything to do with beaded necklaces? Big Grin


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Off The Rails - 02-17-2018

HAHAHA.... Big Grin
Seriously though, Mrs OTR and I were never really big partiers. When we went to Mardi Gras parades, we always stayed on the family friendly Uptown end of the routes or attended parades put on by neighborhood krewes. We actually didn’t engage in much debauchery at all! To be honest, Mardi Gras is kind of a pain when you live and work there.

The nostalgia is more for the usual friends, family and places type memories that exist as moments in time.
