A bit of switching

Cleaning up the freight house

A short bit of video of removing a string of cars from around the freight house and spotting them in the yard.

  3. No more construction ? Now just ‘playing around
    ‘? The vehicles look great but crossing those tracks might be problematic !

    The building …. white bristol board or mat board ? What is the roof , grey mat board ? It looks very effective !

  4. I’d like to know how the engineer knew when to stop- they must have had a relay system of multiple brakemen to get around that line of sight obstacle of a freight house.

    Love the layout, love the site, Tim –

  5. I have no idea for sure how they did it, but I suspect it was like you said, multiple brakemen relaying hand signals back to the engineer. It must have been dangerous, difficult work!
