Have a good look at my newest model train in action. I made a huge train layout circling almost my entire back yard and sent my new BNSF freight train out to do a couple of laps.
The locomotive is made by MTH Electric Trains and is model # 70-2136-1
I bought it from www.trainworld.com but you will probably have a very hard time finding one if you decide you’d like one of your own. MTH has announced that they will be going out of business, and collectors have very quickly snapped up all of these BNSF model trains because it’s such a great model train and in such limited supply.
I really like this new model train. It has excellent sound effects, full DCC control capability, and is quite fast. It’s modeled after an EMD SD70 locomotive.
There was actually a wildfire a few miles from our house while I was shooting this video. You can see a huge plume of smoke rising in to the sky at one point.
My favorite shot in the whole video is the very last one, a grand aerial shot that shows my house, my yard, my neighborhood, and the Columbia River very nearby.
I apologize to all the folks who tuned in for the premiere and live chat on Sunday, May 2nd. I got busy out in my garden and lost track of time… and managed to miss the whole thing. I apologize for being rude and missing the live chat with you all!
