Great! I really liked passing those Maxi-Stacks. Nice to put a couple of those names to faces too.

2 wonderful videos. :thumbup: :thumbup:

The digital coupler video really was interesting. :drool: The technical side of me wants to know how it was done, but the practical side says that this could be another thing we will wind up adding (like DCC) to all locomotives in the near future.

The layout ride was fantastic. For those going to the national event in Cleveland next year, I wonder if the layout ride video could be displayed.....perhaps on a laptop.....the idea would be "this is what can be done in NA TT scale".

We have been dabbling with the idea of getting one of those "Train Cams" and fitting that to a dummy loco, or even a plow or something like that, or a DMU and putting that up next summer.

The 8 minute cab ride over the Iris Creek Valley is awesome! Clearly TT has a great deal to offer, especially in a large layout. The Iris Creek is one of the most "railroady" layouts I've seen in a long time. Cudos to Ingo and crew. :wave: :thumbup:
