@Tramp
I love those green box cars, they took quite a while to get a hold of so many.


Yeah I've never seen them before did you get them from yahoo japan? RE the length, no it was fine! You've got so many engines and so much track it's only right you have a long video to fit it all in! When me and my son got to the end he turned to me and said 'again daddy?' So that's a thumbs up from me and a thumbs up from him!

You don't know how big of a smile came over my face when I read this Tramp. Having the children like watching my videos makes it all worth it. Thanks for sharing that with me.

As far as the green box cars, no I didn't buy any of them from Japan. In fact I don't even see them listed there. No I have had to keep my eye open on Ebay especially in the bulk listings of rolling stock and/or engines. These originally came in a 3 pack from Trackmaster. Check out THIS thread where Ucwepn helped me find where they came from. I actually have another green car not in the video but we don't like it as it has many scratches on its brown roof. We are going to sell it on Ebay with a bunch of other cars and have replaced it the other day with this I got off Ebay for $5 which worked out perfect because we wanted a couple more cattle cars.

Wow! What a lot of rolling stock! Love to get my hands on that green vent van, buffered fruit car, and post wagon!

Bust My Boilers
Or
All Steamed Up




Oh, where can I begin with this "critique" of sorts? As a matter of fact, where do I begin? ._. I don't think I even know where to start with this. Just like the first one, which I said is a diesel gala, you present to us a beautiful, and clear, example of the gorgeous display of steam power. Granted that most were passenger trains, most of your steam locomotives were built for passenger work in the first place! I have to agree on the note that it was not long enough-- I've already watched it several times, and just can't get enough of it! Your layout looks stunning with both steam and diesel running separately, but what if they ran together, tandem?! You've got a few DE10 dummy units that could go behind a D51 or that gorgeous C57(yes, I love that locomotive very much; thanks Chris for the "influence" to purchase one. Big Grin) with some coaches-- it'd look amazing! I love seeing these videos you keep putting up! Lots of great music, amazing shots, and, of course, beautiful engines with a wonderful consist rolling behind them!

Thank you for the kind words HankAmericanEngine. Very nice of you for saying and it sure makes me feel good about the videos. As for:

I have had a couple inquiries as to a particular train seen in the video above. No, this is not the, rare, General Yoshitsune I am waiting for. What it is though is a modified Benkei. The red wheels and yellow side rods have been replaced with black wheels and gray side rods. In fact the gray side rods seen in the video have been replaced by these longer gray ones.

Was-A-Whiff


Grandson wanted to have some "dirty" trains like real ones. Well this "Was-A-Whiff" may have taken the dirty a bit far. Big Grin What do you think?

Wow! That's one coal-dust covered engine!


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Trackmaster-Rail-Yard - 08-09-2014

Now that's an engine that needs to see the wash down! Very nice model, looks very realistic! You should make a wartime dirty steamer! Why not "Justified James" Wink. I really do think that a wartime or maybe a dirty camo engine would be pretty cool if you are interested in dirtying engines!

I never seem to get how you always make your models so perfect! That's amazing!


RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Ucwepn - 08-09-2014

really nice work, I love the Benkei and the former Whiff

Just completed this fun project with some interior lights. I have transformed this train garage into a covered station which works great in the layout elevated with the use of some risers. Lights are courtesy of a 4" self stick 12 LED strip. Inside you can see the train schedule board, check in desk, station help and many passengers waiting with their luggage. Can't wait to see a birds eye view from the on-board camera in the next video. Was an easy and very enjoyable conversion. What do you think?
