These guys run their layout just like a real railroad with a Dispatcher and radios!



Very nice! The layout has a good long run. It would have been nice to see the train from along side the track at some point. However, you get a very good look at the layout, itself.

Really enjoyed the video. I am a fan of cab rides as they really give a different view of a layout.

I have friends in Missouri who have an enormous home layout and have operating sessions similar to this with radios and up to three dispatchers. We have had over 25 trains running at one time, really keeping the dispatchers on their toes. Their model railroad club, also a huge layout operates the same way. These sessions are quite a lot of fun.
