July 4th in the UK

I don't think we worry too much about the background to your celebrations, our memories are not that long. We will use any excuse for fun though, I run a model train layout at a heritage steam railway and on notable days we vary the stock. Apologies from this ignoramus for mixing eras and companies.

Yes, unfortunately the layout is set up for UK running. I suppose I could flip the video, writing would be gibberish then.

Is this not the day Brits recall what a git George Germain was?

When you import a UP diesel you sure go BIG!

Isn't that a EMD DDA40x the biggest and most powerful diesel unit ever built? I've seen a preserved unit but never seen (or felt) one running.

Looks like fun layout. Thanks for sharing.

Yes it is, a Bachmann model. It had to be a static display as it was too big to go through the curved station area, it scrapes the platform edges.

BEAUTIFUL layout! Your Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 (?) is quite nice....and Mr. Rogers trolley even made an appearance! I have the space for a nice HO layout, but time is limited due to the demands of work and kids.

In the past I've modeled the northeastern US railroads of the 60s-80s; namely, Penn Central and Conrail.
