Sutherland Steam Railway In The Snow 2010

Hi again all, The small selection of clips which you see here were filmed today (5/1/2010) and show just how badly the snowfalls affected our garden railway. We did manage, (using old wagons as snow-ploughs), to clear the main running line however. Then, once this was done, 1 train could operate on the circuit, clearing the snow as it fell so to speak. The steam locomotive used, No4560, a Bachmann 45XX Small Prairie Tank, performed well running bunker-first around the circuit hauling our 4 LNER Teak Coaches. Various parts of the circuit can be seen. Notable area’s blocked with snow (at least 3 inches deep) were chilvers loop (completely buried!), sutherland yard (in which 3 wagons were frozen solid!) and ashford spur (another wagon buried solid!). 4560 performed very well under the circumstances, especially as snow continued to fall before, during and after filming! As soon as the train was stopped, the snow buried the main line again within minutes. It was that heavy! (And still is here as of now!). Thanks for watching. Comment and rate if you wish. Enjoy!!

Choo Choo Barn Train Layout 1 May 2010 HD

Some video and stills of the 1700 square foot train layout at the Choo Choo Barn in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. If you’ve never been there and you live close enough, this may whet your appetite to see the layout in person. It is one of a number of railroad and model railroad related places in the area. I’ll post clips later showing a steam train in action (the Strasburg Railroad) and the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum. There aren’t that many HD clips on those subjects on YouTube yet.
