Welcome to Trainz Model Railroad Edition!

In this all new series we’ll be building the Santa Fe, Needles District in Trainz Model Railroad Edition. Follow along for tips and tricks as we build this medium sized model railroad.


Today we’ll begin some scenery work around Barstow and do a bit of on camera building in the second half of the episode. I just bought a new microphone and am still figuring out the best settings to use for my voice, so I’ll probably sound a bit different. I also have to apologize for repeating myself a bit. The time lapse portion of this was filmed a few weeks ago with the live build portion recorded recently. Because of that some things are repeated here and there.

I’m always looking for ways to improve the quality of my video content so feedback is always welcome 😉


The Santa Fe, Needles district was layout #84 in Model Railroader Magazine’s 2009 special issue “102 Realistic Track Plans” and was first published in the September 2002 issue of Model Railroader Magazine. The track plan can also be found in the track plan database on MRR’s website,
