Tin Cup Mining and Logging Railroad in HO Scale
The Tin Cup Railroad is an imaginary mining and logging railroad located in the Colorado high country. The model is HO scale. The Locomotives are all DCC with sound added. The trees are all handmade and 99% of the structures are scratch built. The layout was originally 14 ft. by 5 ft. at the widest point. Two recent additions increased the length to just under 20ft.

HO Gauge Appalachian Mountain Coal Mine Layout Part 1
Just a quick video of my layout in progress. It's a Norfolk Southern "Horsehead" railroad, to be set around a modern day Appalachian Mountain coal mine. I haven't quite figured out the season yet, but most likely mid to late summer for simplicity. This is my first model railroad layout. It's currently running DC, but will be converted to DCC as work progresses. It's a small 4x8 layout utilizing 18" radius curves for the mainline and 15" curves for the mining line, as well as a yard/staging area to add more than just continuous running.. To make the most of my limited layout size, I chose to go with raising the mining line to cross over the mainline to maximize track and to add a bit of depth to it to keep it from getting boring after a few operating sessions, as well as to add a bit more scenery, utilizing mountains, a plateau, a lake/pond, a gorge, and a river. To follow the build in a bit more detail, check out my thread on Model Railroad Forums @ http://www.modelrailroadforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19185 Thanks for watching.

Model Train Layout with Canyon and Rocky Mountains in HO Scale
This model train layout is characterized by a mountain landscape, a canyon with real water and a big mine. The scenario of this model railway layout is based in Canada. On the area of a very big ore mine, rocks are loaded onto long model trains with more than 60 freight cars driven by three diesel locomotives. Then, the freight trains drive along the Rocky Mountains landscape to port, where the ore is loaded onto a ship. Later, the trains pass through a real looking landscape with deep gorges and flowing water. The whole model railroad layout is built in HO scale.

HO Gauge Appalachian Mountain Coal Mine Layout Part 6
Got a little bit done on the layout this last week. I've started adding the water to the pond and river, painted the bridge, ballasted some of the yard and inner loop, and permanently attached the mountain shack, freight station, water tower, and engine shed to the layout.

HO Gauge Appalachian Mountain Coal Mine Layout Part 3
My appoligies in advance for the crudity of this video. I don't have a good video editing program that can piece together .AVI movies (Movie Maker tends to only recognize them as sound files). Also, my camcorder doesn't like indoor lighting too well. Anyway, on to the updates. First (and most importantly) I've gotten a lot of bugs worked out of the trackwork (my first layout, and I'm making quite a few mistakes that I'm having to go back and fix). I still need to build up my collection of quality rolling stock (the 4 hoppers in the yard are having some derailment issues, and the juice cars belong to the club. I damaged them during transport from the county fair and need to fix them) to add a bit more interest than short trains. Secondly, I've added one of the mountains, giving the mainline train a chance to "hide" for a brief period of time. It's not finished, but it's a start. I'll be doing final formations of the mountain once the second mountain is in place. Lastly, the mainline has been ballasted. I'll still have to go back and touch up a few spots, but it's mostly done. I've also added a Dash 9 to the locos I've got.

LAYOUT TOUR: HO Scale Stockton and Copperopolis RR
Filmed 07/29/17 I should have made this into a 2 parter, but I've been doing a lot of multi-pat videos for a while now. Thought I'd torture my computer and have one big one this time around. This is the second time I've been to this layout, though it's the first time I've filmed anything there. This was on the layout tours as a part of the NMRA Turkey Creek Division show, and fortunately for me, this layout is located right here in Blue Springs, MO. Also, for more on this layout, here is a link to Shane Mason's video he posted late last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXymyt2U5GI Set in 1895, Don Ball's Stockton & Copperopolis Railroad is a Southern California shortline that began construction for the gold rush, but that played out before the railroad's completion. So they switched to grain as their main commodity, but buy the time the railroad was completely built, even the grain in the are was on the decline. Despite this being HO scale, with it set in 1895 means there is not a lot available commercially, so most of what yo see here, including the locomotives are scratchbuilt and what isn't (which is very little) has been highly modified, especially where the locomotives are concerned, so they operate as smooth as any KATO, Bowser, and MTH. Most of what you see has also been painted and weathered by Don as well. Done does hold operating sessions, and it's all done as if it were actually 1895. No radios, no modern day technology of any kind (except for the Digitrax DCC throttles and faceplate plug ins. Those are the ONLY modern day tech you will visibly see. Train orders and track warrants run this railroad with actual old telephones for the crew to communicate. Even the fast clocks replicate era specific Regulator clocks. The dispatcher's desk off in the next room, and the crew lounge are also themed for 1895. The crew lounge looks like an old west saloon. For more information, please click that link I posted up above. It will take you to Shane Mason's video where he interviewed Don late last year. Lots more there to learn. Anyway, that's it for now, starting next weekend, I'll be posting a series of video's from the Central Iowa Railroad Club located on the State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. I was up there last weekend for their last official meeting before the big open house event next weekend during the Iowa State Fair. I will be going back up there for that next weekend.

HO Gauge Appalachian Mountain Coal Mine Layout Part 7
I've got quite a bit done on the layout in the last couple of weeks. First off, I managed to get the rest of the layout ballasted. In addition, I've added a couple more structures to the layout. The first of which is to be the primary industry on the layout. A coal mine. In actuality, this structure is a coaling tower that will be converted using an elongated chute coming from the structure and flowing the coal to the hopper in the yard underneath. I'm still working on the chute. The second structure added was a balsa kit of a trackside shed that I received at my train club's "white elephant" gift exchange at the Christmas party. To "liven up" the structures, I've added some clump folliage and tall grass at their bases. In addition, the little mountain shack at the base of the mountain now has a rusted out car sitting in some bushes and tall grass, as if abandoned there to rot. I've also managed to get the pond and river nearly filled up, as well as added some follieage, tall grass, and talus to them. There is also now a dock with a family on a fishing trip located on the pond and two couples canoeing on the river below. To make use of my old plastic wheelsets from rolling stock, I've painted them and set them next to the engine shed as a spare/junk axle storage yard. Hopefully this week I'll be able to add a forklift, put a couple of axles on it, and put it next to the shed as well.

Layout Update December 22, 2013 Mine Mount & Seaside Railroad
It's been quite awhile since my last update...sorry. OK, got that out of the way. The reason is that I've been busy working on the layout. I have built a few structures, laid down all of the mainline track, the track in Gasko yard, and started the switchback to head up to the 2nd level. I've done wiring projects. From as simple as dropping track feeders to the buss, to adding ocucupancy detection to the back staging area. The detection includes current and optical detection. I have built some freight cars and also purchase some engines. I added strip LED lighting to the underneath of the upper deck. This shines down on the lower level. It made a BIG difference in appearance. I'll be adding more of that lighting in the future. There are a few other little things that got done. Thanks for watching and subscribing. I will make a better effort to post more videos for 2014... maybe a new years resolution.

HO Gauge Appalachian Mountain Coal Mine Layout Part 8
Layout update for 20 March 2011. Quite a few more trees have been added, as well as a few structures and telephone poles. I've also moved the GP38 locos to the mainline in an MU with my Dash 9 and SD38 due to derailment issues. These have been deemed due to the wheelbase and truck travel of the GP38s. There is now a Broadway Limited Imports Paragon2 PRR SW7 switch engine running the branchline. It doesn't pull very hard (hence the decrease in length of the train. I had expected this to be the case since switch engines aren't built to pull long trains), but runs well. Enjoy.

Cumberland West - January 2011 Layout walkaround - B&O and WM Railroad ( DCC HO large layout tour )
Cumberland West - Western Maryland and B&O Railroads HO Scale Owner: David Parks This video was taken on January 2011. This layout is a representation of the town of Cumberland, Maryland, in 1953, were both the Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) and the Western Maryland (WM) railroads had tracks going through, and parts of its surrounding towns and mines. The layout is single layer in a 1200 sq. ft. room with Mole staging. There is a detailed backdrop, complete scenery and also rough scenery, and a few bridges and structures. The B&O includes the junction of the Pittsburgh and Cumberland Divisions and part of the West End Sub. The Western Maryland includes the junction in Cumberland, along with parts of the Thomas and Connellsville Subs. Each railroad is operated independently of the other, except for interchanges and minor trackage rights. Both railroads are 'bridge' lines with an abundance of thru manifest traffic. Coal is the local focus. Both railroads have a Dispatcher, Stage Manager and Coal Manager. The Coal Manager works with the Dispatcher to regulate coal loads and empty hopper traffic. An operating session focuses on one railroad with the other sometimes offering moving scenery. The WM is single track with many on-line mines and uses timetable and train orders. Only a single passenger train is scheduled. Most station operator positions are unmanned and the train crews communicate with the dispatcher. WM local activity is dominated by local coal mines The B&O is double track main with 'Current of Traffic' rules using B&O 9 aspect Color Position Lights (CPL) signals. Four Tower Operators control interlocking sections. They use computer touch-screens to manipulate switches and signals with pseudo Standard Signal graphics. The B&O has many named passenger trains and some passenger switching in Cumberland. B&O coal mines are off- line. Operations center on the Keyser coal switching yard and a small manifest yard. Digitrax DCC is used for control. Stage routing is controlled via computer screens. Car forwarding uses car cards and waybills for manifest freights. Coal and empty hoppers use multi-car coal orders. Communications is via a 1950's era 14 station multi-line phone system. The clock is real time. Shot and edited 3/2011

Super Real Operations on an HO Railroad
Lee Nicholas’ Utah Colorado & Western uses a highly realistic operating system based on prototype train operations in 1950 including a CTC mainline. Lee started the 30 X 33 layout in 1970 and has worked on it ever since. He has developed a super realistic system of train orders, waybills and switch lists which are very close to the way a real railroad scheduled crews and train moves using a computer system called Flex Bill.
