    I just published my first You Tube video... but I don't know how to put it on Trainboard. So... those of you who have a recent video... post it here and tell me how to post mine.
    Thanks!!!

    Edit #2: Did you knew you can add &fmt=18 at the end of YouTube URL to get better video quality? Place the code right after the video ID so that this:

    (...)watch?v=OXzvYEJuKKE

    ends up like this:
    (...)watch?v=OXzvYEJuKKE&fmt=18

    This always work when on YouTube even if the "watch in high quality" link is not shown at all. Unfortunately It does not seam to be compatible with trainboard's automatic parsing. It seam to discard the & char which result in a blank and useless YouTube box.

    I snipped the original message since the info was worthless at best which is a shame for a first reply. I replaced it with something useful to all.

    I'll be back home later tonight to try. So do I ' [url ]' and '[ /url ]' on both ends of the link?

    I've noticed some video' posted which appear different than the above posted links. They are in a black background with the icon to start video already on the photo.

    When you go to youtube and see the video displayed....go up top in the browser...in the 'address' bar....highlight and copy that url...come back here and just paste that address into your post or reply. No 'tags' are required.

    No tags are required. As mentioned, just paste the URL in from the address bar in your web browser. When you click the Submit button or Preview button, TrainBoard will automagically convert it to the correct video player.

    I believe the inside track is 15" and the outside is 16 3/8". It's from Kato's V11 set, the superelevated double track concrete tie track.

    The double track superelevated looks pretty good. Interesting if the outside is 16.375". I just wish Kato would make a couple more individual track radii in-between the 15" and 19".

    Man... you have the same Plano tackle box I have. :D

    Mainstreet in Monmouth, IL

    Ethan (my six year old son) and I made a video the other day. Jenna (age 2) added some commentary. I've been working pretty hard on the crossing gate flasher/detector. In the end there will be a microcontroller at every crossing listening to IR detectors to lower the gates and flash the lights. Signals and switches will also communicate with a bus master and provide information to a dispatcher... someday. In the mean time, we really need to clean the track.
