My LEGO Trains in action at last!
It has been months since I was last able to film trains in motion around all of my tracks. Back when I moved in March, it took just 2 days to go from a completely empty room to about 80% of what's on the layout today. Everything was already pre-built from the old city and careful digital planning let every element fall into its new place gracefully. I just needed to MOC up a way to get my main line over the water by the small marina, and I was ready to run. Unfortunately that took a sizable fraction of forever.
Patience is a virtue, though, right? With all three loops completed (for now), yards & crossovers connected, it was finally time to charge up some battery packs, switch some points, and crank up some rheostats. In this video I pull out all of the stops and run every locomotive and pull every car I currently own, 9V & PF (and both), kit-stock and custom, passenger & freight, standard & narrow gauge.
