Welcome back to the layout! Tonight we are going to take a further look at coal operations on the NS Asheville District Layout. In the previous 3 videos in this series, we look at how we load the live coal loads with a working flood loader, how we take the heavy trains up a steep grade with helper locomotives, and how we unload the live loads with a fully automated rotary dumper. In this final part to the series, we look at how empty coal trains are returned to the mine. The coal we use for our loads is Woodland Scenics Coarse Coal.
Also in this video on operations, we look at a unique addition to operations – RAIN! Rain effects were added in post-production editing.
Thanks for watching!
