dcc locomotive

Week by week these videos will take you on a personal tour of
several fascinating layouts
Be inspired as you discover how to
save time, money and stress building and maintaining your
own model railroad…
without the costly mistakes!

Learn about: baseboard construction, soldering track, DCC movements and decoder programming, electrics explained, operational ideas, scenery, structures, making foliage and more.

But that’s not all… in these videos, you’ll get to tour several private layouts… not normally open to the public. You’ll be ‘abuzz’ with ideas, while watching train operations on an array of industrial, agricultural and suburban train layouts. You’ll even get to visit some train shows without having to pay the accommodation or travel costs.

And, if you’re even remotely interested in building a garden railway, then you’ll be fascinated with the tutorials and layout tour of the 3 garden railway videos in this collection. They are a real treat!

And that’s just a small ‘taste’ of what’s in store for you. Needless to say, it doesn’t matter whether you are modeling in HO, O, N, OO, Z, or G scale… these videos are for you!

From: Robert Anderson.

Before I go any further I have a confession.

These short videos are NOT glitzy, big-budget Hollywood productions. That’s why, not one of them will be a box-office hit, watched by millions of people worldwide.

Far from it! These are amateur videos made by, and for, keen model railroading enthusiasts like you and me.

Just think about it; when it comes to building a layout, it’s the ideas and techniques that matter, not whether these tutorial and layout tour videos will win an Academy Award. Am I right?

You see, I could have mortgaged my house to pay a production company tens of thousands of dollars to produce them, but then each video would have tripled or quadrupled in price!

I could have turned them into a DVD set, but this would have made them too expensive for the many railroaders on a fixed income.

So instead, I’ve focused on providing good content and I’ve had to sacrifice some quality in the production process.

Truth is; sections of these videos are a bit blurry and on some occasions my hand is a bit shaky with the camera. So, if that bothers you, then these videos are not for you.

Here's What Really Matters...

CONTENT IS KING’  You'll get lots of useful ideas and tips to help you build or improve your own model railroad.

But, that's only half the story...each short video* was filmed 'down-under' in Australia and New Zealand, so you'll see some interesting layouts, unique scenery ideas (both countries are renowned for stunning scenery) and ingenious solutions to problems. You’ll find these ver-r-r-y interesting!

Rest assured, if you live in the USA, Canada, UK or Europe, you'll notice the models and supplies are from the same manufacturers you'll see at home. So, these videos are 100% relevant to you.

Save The Videos To Your Computer, Or On Disk, For Future Viewing Whenever You Want…

You might think I'm crazy, but I don't want to sell thousands of these videos. I would rather make them available to only those who will really appreciate them. That's why this invitation has only gone out to my loyal subscribers, so you'll be one of a select few to see them.

Truth is; I would have liked to offer them to you for nothing, but if I don't eat and cover some of my costs, I won't be able to keep sending you other helpful model railroading ideas.

Likewise, to keep the prices down, these videos are only available as a download and not available in stores, or on a commercial disk – so please don’t ask.

With that said; you can save each video to your computer, or to a disk, and build your own personal resource library of 42 video clips.

Now, if you’re like me… and would rather have good content, rather than some fancy ‘Hollywood style’ production, I can honestly say you will enjoy these videos and find them stimulating and helpful. Each video is between 3 to 12 minutes in length. You'll see ideas you might not have considered and be able to try out some different techniques on your own layout.

More on that in a moment - but first, let me explain what you will get on each video:

Week 1

Video #1. ‘My Railroad’ (Part 1)
75 year old John takes you on a tour of his HO layout. It's remarkable how John has compacted so many ideas and features
into a small 10 foot x 8 foot room. If you are pushed for space,
then you'll be inspired by what John has achieved.

Without giving too much away, I can reveal that John will tell you about the monorail he built, he'll ‘double head’ a couple of steam locos and add smoke oil.He'll also operate the ‘Big Boy’ locomotive and take you on a tour around the entire layout.

Video #2. ‘Baseboard Construction’ (Part 1)
The C&SFT layout is modular, being made up of modules no more than 6 feet long. This makes it easy to add extra length at either end or anywhere in the middle by adding modules. Watch, as experienced model railroader James, shows you step-by-step how to construct a baseboard.

Colin then demonstrates an electrically operated Baldwin Steam Locomotive and gives some tips on ‘points’ and structure building.

Week 9

Video #17. ‘Electrics Explained’
In this video clip, James explains the control panel he built to control various points on his layout including the signals. He shows you how he has motorized all the turnouts on the main tracks and why he’s left all the other turnouts, such as the interchange, as manual throw turnouts. James has used different methods to attach the turnouts depending on their location on the layout and shows how he has mounted the DCC system under his baseboard.

After a quick tour James explains how to measure the track voltage and how to reduce the voltage to prevent decoders from overheating or failing. He then shows you step-by-step how to build a ‘diode matrix’ set. diode matrix

"I've saved each video to my computer so I can watch them whenever I want a break from doing chores around the house. Thanks."
