I set up my On18 micro on the kitchen table for a short filming session after breakfast this morning. The result can be seen here.

Here's one for the 'finescale' modellers among our readers.

Just to show them what they're missing. Laughing

Looks good, Bob. You've got a great collection of stock there - particularly like the two green tankers......also the tractor and square saddle tank loco.

Thought for rivet-counters:- perhaps the U/E power car has been dressed up with a face for the local carnival week-end.

Cheers Giles. The tank wagons have been awaiting conversion for a while, but this is a hobby and there's no deadline to work too. Laughing

The locos are both dummies mounted on N gauge wagon frames. The motive power being in the brake van of the passenger train (Minitrix class 27) and the stone wagon of the goods train (Kato 11-105 tram mechanism).

Ah, you've spoiled the illusion now Bob!!! Rolling Eyes Laughing I for one had quite forgotten this fact, and it never occurred to me watching the video that the actual motive power was not in the loco in either case!!
What I did like is the way a through-line, however small, gives the impression of a lot more Railway either side, much more than a single-fiddleyard-to-terminus layout can.

Nice one Bob! Very Happy

Multi gauger and multi talented - driving a loco, filming and playing on your organ all at the same time! Laughing

Great stuff

Roger

Don't forget evading dive bomber style attacks by the seagulls too. Laughing

I've converted some more On30 rolling stock for use on the Seaside Line. A four wheeled van, fitted onto a Kato 11-103, makes an excellent soundbox. Just listen as it passes, it will obviously need to be rostered with the tractor on a regular basis,
