Cab Ride on the CMRS Mainline.
Location: Carquinez Model Railroad Society, HO Scale DCC Layout.
This is an (almost) full run of the mainline at CMRS. It’s missing the “level 1” which is really mostly a staging area, the 2 helixes and a nice coal mine, which I’ll feature another time.
The purpose of the video is to expose their very nice scenery. The upper level is still under construction in some area.
For an updated view of the upper level, check out this video:
Hope you enjoy it!
Several persons asked why this features a background music track and no train engine sound. The fact is there is no train sound since it wasn’t a DCC-sound engine running. The only sound recorded was some other members’ discussions, which I did not want to capture on the video. I could have of course dubbed some other random train sound recorded separately, and instead choose to use a jazzy/ambient background sound track on this one as I have other videos where I focus on capturing proper engine sound.
I do however plan to redo this layout tour at some point and the new one will feature engine sound since this has been requested many times 🙂
