The large back yard of this new house was designed for model trains! A cement path was created all the way around the big lawn on this 1/2 acre lot, so that tracks could be set up and big model trains could make the long trip around.
This model train video is special because of the unique point of view of the camera, which is attached to the side of a G-scale model of the Santa Fe Super Chief passenger train.
It’s a simple video, really… no edits… just one camera going continuously as this LGB-brand model train makes two laps around the big layout in my back yard.
The best part of the video may actually be the audio! Do yourself a favor and put on a pair of headphones as you watch this, so you can truly appreciate some of the stereo effects the mic on the GoPro picked up. It’s especially noticeable when one of the other trains passes in the opposite direction.
Besides the Santa Fe Super Chief, other trains that appear in this video are:
An Amtrak passenger train, from MTH trains
A Santa Fe freight train, from MTH trains
and a goofy combination of a European steam locomotive pulling passenger cars for the White Pass & Yukon Route railway.
