Here's a video of a larger layout a friend sent me. He has been waiting for the moderators to approve his membership.............

Just like on a real train you get to see some odd stuff along the way.
Nice trip.

Peter, Pretty impressive stuff. Some of that "drawn in" scenery will look really good when it is finished!

This was reeeeal good, I liked the long run time and that built up town scene for Bealville(?) was superb structure and detail wise. Love this era of the SP too.
Thanks!

My friend has more videos to post if he only could get "approved"!!! I recall it only took a couple of days when I joined. What can I do to help him out? Does this forum actually HAVE a moderator/"bossman"? Also I keep asking about emptying the photo server so we can easily post photos but I never get an answer. Is this a "ghost ship" forum that just keeps going without any crew?

We got a crew but maybe we don't want a captain.

OK Crew, why doesn't one of you approve my friend's request to join, while the other of you (crew would denote to me there's more than one!) clear out the server so we can post pictures. I read somewhere a picture is worth a 1000 words!!.........................

Maybe it's more accurate to say we're minions, as we have no control of approving anything on the forum.

I gave up on waiting for moderators to clear out the photo library and learned how to use Shutterfly to host my photos. Small learning curve as I'm computer illiterate and it adds a few steps to being able to post photos...............but it's worth it.

Well, UP 148, that's a shame that new people cannot join this august group. Anyway, with his permission I'm going to post the remainder of his videos. Quite an impressive layout all together. He'd love to tell you about it, if only.....................

MTJ is not a ghost ship because somebody is paying its hosting bills.

Admin emails from MTJ come from bill at vintagecastings dot com. Perhaps you should try emailing that address for help?

I watched the videos herronpeter posted. Seems to be a rather complex layout and if scenery is ever finished (not in my lifetime) ther might be a lot of hidden trackage. The trains seem to run very well and are probably correct for a certain time. Very enjoyable.

Peter, Jerry has a GREAT looking layout. About the only flaw I can see is that it is not an eastern road! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Just kidding! Hopefully the membership issue will get solved.
