    Ok thanks! Currently uploading to YouTube now. Didn’t know I had a channel . Sure takes a long time though.

    Ok here is the video. Being the first one I have ever done like this it is a little rough but it gets the idea across. This is part 1 of a two part series. This video is to give a little background and intro to my layout. My inspiration so to speak.

    Enjoy!

    A great tool for the layout that I found at Harbor Freight. Since I will be building loads with a washer or not in them for easy removal these magnetic tools will make it easy to remove and put in place where the car sits. [​IMG]

    I made a video on how I do my ballasting. It is a little rough but what can I say...I’m not a pro. Enjoy!

    Don’t ya hate it when you know you have an item and don’t remember where you put it? I’ve misplaced a box of screws and a package of garbage cans and it is driving me nuts trying to find them.

    Yes I do hate it!!! I had a bunch of decals stockpiled and after the tornado we had to clean out the train room. I put them together in an envelope to keep them together and safe. Torn the room apart about 3 times now.....grrrrr

    And a package of industrial dust cyclones, would love to know where they went, no excuse there, I used them 3 months ago!!!!

    Lol- keep searching, you’ll find the stuff before long. I combed the train room three times before I found the garbage cans attached to another item with a rubber band.

    Do! The railroad got tired of all the trespassing so they made the park.

    Proposed location for a cemetery. Halloween scene that lasts all year. the other location would be near a church in another corner that has even less space.[​IMG]
