i decided to do this thread to simplify all that I keep,posting on here. This ine will be of Vids that I find outside of other posts that have a good theme and include interest in build.

1st Up
A build of a rather nice US based Garden Line (or is it Canada?). My knowledge of the orher side of the pond is not perfect. I rather like the Train Shed which has great use for storing excess stock though I would not keep Locomotives in such a Shed overnight. Also of note is the extensive use of 8's and the self holding Blocks that make construction so much quicker. In fact this guy had a test train running in justbover 4 minutes! Plus note many of the Cable runs and mains pre placed with a well thought out plan. Much to learn here.

He’s in Arkansas, which is still in the US so far as I know! Nice layout, though. Presume there’s no copyright issue?

If it's up on Youtubby, then I think it's automatically in the public domain..... at least if all you're doing is posting a link to it, not actually copying the vid and reposting it somewhere else entirely!
Looks to be interesting, must find time to watch it all; bit of a shame that the first thing you see in the titles is "GARDAN" instead of Garden.....

You tube does have an option to Post Vids Privately so if it is visible then all are fair game to link to so far as I am concerned.

Now this is what I call a Garden Railway, operation a little limited with only 2 points. But wow.

New YORK elevated one this time, some super footage dated 1929 with even a little bit of Steam. I wonder if they were Thorne’s as NY did have them in the L. One of the curves and Stations was around 100ft, amazing with glimpses of a Tram and lots of Double Decker Busses. Must watch Vid in my view.

Interesting shots. Those small steam locos seem to have been quite powerful judging by the amount of cars being hauled. Another thing was that some of the driving cars had the balcony in front instead of the cab coming right to the front of car. That would make modelling a working El system very easy!

TRAIN MOUNTAIN OREGON.
Found this whilst idly surfing You Tube. Whilst this is a Training Video some of the procedures and concepts will help us to Operate our lines in a much more defined way. After all we do not wish to trash our expensive Locomotives and Stock do we? Also looks like a great place to visit if you are anywhere near Oregon.

If that's the 'starting grid', imagine the carnage at the first two corners! :eek::rofl::rofl::rofl:

One of the North Yorks Moors Gala showing a Spam doing its thing, look very carefully around 1.45 how it stayed on the Rails I will never know. A 5MPH Restriction should have been implemented here me thinks. Just makes you realise how effective Springing is, though I could imagine a few broken ones with track that bad. Thank goodness the Light Railway Order only allows a max speed of 25mph.


Edit sorry forgot link!

Not seen many that I have had the inspiration to post recently, but this one really got my goat. N Gauge but what a layout, typically runs Trains of 1-200 Cars. The Ebola Yard holds I think it was 2500 Cars. Now that would take some Shunting out! Room size in the Basement would make a great space for G Scale so consider what can be done in N and this guy has done it. Plus all the Off-Line Stock including many Countries, spied a collection of UK N Gauge in one of them. Awesome makes my own efforts seam insignificant.

If anyone you know says that they cannot afford the price of a Model Railway send them this link. Probably not much good to leave outside all the time with the Track being made by Cardboard, but what a clever cheep Train Set.

Not a Railway Build, but I would love to trundle Down St.Neots High Street Driving something like this. I envisage using an old Andrew Barclay Industrial Tank Loco as a starting point to build one. Well when I win the Euro Millions!
