Dear Friends,
I've recently posted a video on YouTube showing construction of my outdoor gauge 1 track. The second-half shows quite a bit of live steam running action. Footage includes some scratch built Pullman sleeper cars as well. They are resin cast from plans I developed using the 1943 Car Builders Cyclopedia.
Here is a link to the video:

Enjoy,

Thanks for checking it out, and I appreciate the kind words. As for scenery...not so much. The rail has been weathered, I'm adding a second loop which should give the appearance of a double track main. I intend to super-elevate the curves, and add ballast, otherwise the layout serves primarily as a display stage for the trains.
If you go to my YouTube channel BL0CKD0C you can see my old O gauge layout with some scenery, there are a couple of fun cab ride videos there as well.
Keep 'em steaming,
BradN
