Candie in Treats for Troops.

Often as not I have no earthly clue what I am going to shoot or why. I just do, and things come into focus on their own. It is really tough to communicate what the heck one is on about, and then who really cares anyways? None the less, it amuses me. In this video I was at a complete blank. What has been on my mind, as with the majority of us, is the murderous debacle going on in Europe. The ad hoc sort of mismatch and miscalculations that are part of this horror just sort of popped up on their own. Foreign aid represented by the Tyco billboard cars offering a mad range of supplies, US Army locomotive on point. The vast confusion of old and new technological assistance and utilization represented by the non-sequitur appearance of a three truck Shay, out of nowhere, and finally the destruction of humanity and innocence, represented by Candie's travails. Not intended to be political. Just me blowing off steam with regard to an impossible situation that threatens the fabric of civilization.

As WKS sagely notes, if people focused on creative hobbies like model railroading instead of trying to own the
world, things would be a lot better.

"I see a twain! I see a twain!"

That Shay looks like it is a sweet runner, Chops.

Bumping my own thread, a blast from my past...

Added a Xmas train and a couple Tyco Trolleys... I'd love to make the trolleys DCC, but I've heard that can't be done...

Just throwing down some archival stuff. Back before digital, I never had many photos of
my model trains. Now it is easy as pie, and it is fun to go back and look at earlier attempts.

I got kind of obsessed with Tyco orange NH box cars. Abundant and usually not more than
a buck each, I think my grand total came up to about 35. It took three powered units, ABA,
to haul this monstrosity around the Club layout. The initial shot of it starting up shows the
locomotive doing a little jumping up and down. That is not camera wobble, but the effect of
twelve powered wheels trying to find purchase.

PC Expresso. Filmed with a Hot Wheels Video Cam Racer. Used a chaser locomotive and a flat car.
