In this video we finish installing controls on the Mountain side of the layout and take a look at our newest locomotives. In our “Sidetracked” segment we share some great model railroad info and visit a great forum and layout build in progress. We also visit a real world inspirational short line railroad as well as see some of sights at the Great Scale Model Train Show.

With some much needed humor, we cover a variety of interesting topics related to controls for the mountain side of the layout and get a glimpse at some new locomotives.

Our HO Scale traveling display layout is well underway, be sure to follow the progress.
