The Coca Cola train and several of my other G-scale model trains make an appearance in this video as I play with model trains on a layout inside my home.
Using a GoPro mounted on the train as well as a big DSLR camera to shoot the video, you’ll see a few of my model trains running on a railway layout through my house. At one point, I even try shooting video of the trains from a DJI Mavic Mini drone, but that doesn’t go very well!
Later in the video, I attach a GoPro to the back of Winston to try to improve on a POV over-the-shoulder shot I did in a previous video. Sir Topham Hatt rides along, but mostly you just see his hat!
I also admit that I’m an idiot for not realizing two years ago when I bought the Coca Cola train that it had DCC built in to it and would run under digital control from a tablet. For two years, I’ve been running it with an analog controller… but finally, someone clued me in that I had a DCC model train and didn’t even realize it. Feel free to leave me a comment that begins with the words “Jim, you idiot…”
