  1. Great layout. Have one train going the opposite direction and slow and smooth camera work. Thank You.

  2. This is a terrific layout. One of the best. I have been toying with adding an On21/2 logging road to my own humble layout. It was great to see what John has done with his layout. Thank you for posting.

  3. The layout is a beauty. I wish the videographer had used a tripod (!). And I’d like to know where John got that huge mountain backdrop!

  4. What a fantastic layout and I could “smell” the pines. Glad the train speed is slow which provides the interest as they pass the buildings and travel the rails.

  5. Very nice layout and I love the tall trees. I have a suggestion that might add some interest for those watching your trains operate. On the levels where you have two parallel tracks, run one of the two trains in the opposite direction. The trains will come by just as often but twice on each lap the trains will pass by each other. This will make the layout appear busier, when really it’s the same amount of traffic that you have now. As they are all operating counterclockwise in the video you kind of only see one train at a time. Fabulous work on the layout. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Looks like a great layout but the video photography left a lot to be desired. Too much camera motion and closeups.
