Thread: Hawks NEW "MHO Junction" layout

  1. Default

    It's finally here.
    I can run my trains non stop around the entire layout.
    I still have to do lots of wiring, but I can stop and watch trains run for 1/2 hour.

    Here's a video of my first full run....enjoy.

    Lloyd,

    Congratulations on reaching a milestone in your layout !!!!!

    Thanks for taking us for a ride around the layout. It looks even larger from that perspective than it looked in the photos you have posted. It's HUGE!

    You have a lot of rolling stock. And having the rolling stock and some structures on the track during the ride around the track really helped put things into perspective.

    Good job,

    Jon...

    Nice ride ! enjoyed the trip. Now I can see progress slowing a tad. You'll spend s bit of time running trains.

    Thanks for posting.

    WOW -- that's quite a ride just to complete one lap!
    You have to be feeling pretty good about that?
    Congratulations!

    Thanks Jon, I needed to put some rolling stock and industries on the layout, it gave me some incentive to keep going forward

    Thanks Chet, lol, that's what I did today, ran some trains frontward, backward for 5-10 laps, to see if I had any flaws......and I don't...woohoo, but I do have lots of wiring to do.

    Thanks Sherrel, You're right, it's quite a ride, I set up my NCE to notch 8 and just watched it go around and it took 4.5 minutes for a lap

    Morning:

    Glad everyone is fine this morning.

    Home from the woods...time to take some photos of my "wiring".

    Chet: This weekend at the cabin I needed heat on one morning to take the chill out of the air and then A/C in the afternoon to cool things off.

    You guys are correct about color coding the wiring which is something i started but didn't follow through all the way. Lucky I can unplug power sources and test the wiring by following the "hot" wires to solve any problems. My freight yard extension will be color coded for sure.

    That's all for now.

    Whoo, hoo. You should get out all the little people and set them up for a golden spike ceremony.

    Hey Horseman,

    Not yet, the little people will have to wait cause I want more wiring to be done so I can have a nice flow to the run.


    Lately I've been working on more industry layouts.

    More wiring, container area is now gone and in it's place is now a 6 track yard for St-Eugene.
    Even if it's summer (well almost over), I'm still hard at work on my layout.

    Later

    PS. For those interested, there will be a live show (also recorded) on the operations of my layout. The person that designed my layout will explain how he sees OP sessions. It will be live on YouTube, will let you know when and where.
