    Hi Trainboard folks!
    Finally a video where I am operating the full layout! Even though the layout isn't completed yet, I wanted to make a video where I show operating trains. I've been playing with it for a few weeks now and it's working really well at this point. When I had my original layout in the 70's all the turnouts were manual, two blocks and it was a completely different experience to run trains. (Or maybe because I was 10?)

    Anyway, sorry if the voice quality isn't great with all the moving trains. (They do make a lot of noise for such a small motor)

    Let me know what you think and enjoy!
    Barry

    Barry,

    So sweet! You really did a great job. Where did you get the touch toggle panel from?

    Wow,man! Your track work is apparently bulletproof. You do a great job of multitasking. I think your layout is fantastic with excellent scenery potential.

    Thank you for the feedback - I bought them from Kevin at Touch Toggles after seeing them at the Springfield Mass Train show. Really they are worth the expense. I cover them extensively in some of my earlier videos!

    Thanks Jim,
    I soldered and applied shrink wrap tubing and tested every connection and it paid off. That took me months! sagree I am going to replicate the Toporama photo at first and then augment and add to it once it is in the coffee table.
    Best,
    Barry
