    John,

    I am an FEC fan first, and Milwaukee Road second. Still deciding on which I should model. Milwaukee gives me great western scenery if I so choose and FEC is much easier to research when I go home to visit family LOL If I decide to go FEC then plan on more locos being flying the colors.

    John, if you deside to do FEC, I may have a extra set of logos, and can have them.

    Lets get back to videos. This is my Dash9 converted to dcc by Oliver Passman.

    Super nice but based on what other people do on YouTube, shouldn't you have had Debby Boone singing "You Light Up My Life" or something?

    Not sure if this is actually Z Scale or not though. I am pretty sure it isn't.

    Hi

    that's a nice video, the musik is matching the cuts!

    well, actually it's HO: you can discover this by having a close look at the couplers; also the track does have the 2nd pole in the middle of the ties between the two rails, what is a specialty of maerklin HO track...:tb-wink:

    Well now every time I hear a car alarm of a Euro siren, I'll think trains. Great funky (oops, almost had a typo there) music.

    Howly Cow Rob! That's a flash back. Seeing the prior-to-release golden GP that Joe entrusted Loren with during those early days (must be why they are now still together, eating pie).

    Where the hell is co-founder of the BAZ BoyZ Ted anyway?

    Sounds like you guys had fun Henrik! Here is a short clip showing my weakest puller, the Marklin Mogul, pulling 12 new AZL Bethgons with ease! This is to demonstrate how free rolling these new trucks are:

    Torsja,

    Nice videos. I have never seen the 2-6-8-0 run. How does it run? Are all the driving wheels 6-8 driven by the motor. If you get to open the loco could you post a picture, I am just curious how Marklin did it.

    Thanks
    Kim
