Went up to London today.Got part of the loop running and tried out the mini camera.
Anybody that knocks LGB should really see this.It took me and the children 20 minutes to uncover part of the track.Two passes with the track cleaner (which only needed 2 pushes) and we were off with the digital system.The worst bits of clagg on the track were from live steam 6 months ago.
All of the contacts worked ect (the layout works on a signal/enable system)
A short vid....

Good film Troy.

A bit sad to see your Dad's garden railway overgrown but glad to see it still runs!

What tram were you running in that film and what's happening to his line now?

I go up to London every three weeks,with my siblings doing the doing the other.
I'm the only one that has any interest in transport so we just get out there and run what we can.
I did mention to dad today that we need to start lifting the outer tracks (there are 3 outer tracks that run longer than this video) before the elements bury them.I counted 36 points and crossovers today that needed lifting.I'm doing my best to keep the inner loop operational.
Next visit is a major weedkilling one.
The tram running was an LGB New York car with digital sound.
The line will keep running as long as he,and we can. Very Happy

Good...Smile

I was afraid you were going to say that it was all going to be lifted.

I seem to remember from other pics and videos about the the multiple tracks. It was a good layout in its heyday.

You don't fancy running trams in Paris do you.....? Wink

Troy,
Its nice to see that you're trying to keep something going for the old boy. I hope he gets some pleasure from it.

He gets immense pleasure from it.And so he should.It's so complicated,even now,I still don't know how it works.
As I said today to him
"This point is Ok"
"Of course it is.I bloody put it there"
God willing in the Spring I'll have a lot more up and running.

Trams in Paris.
You only have to ask Very Happy
