Filmed July 29, 2017
I was invited as a prospective/pending new member to participate in a Saturday night operations session at the North Metro Model Railroad Club in Coon Rapids, Minnesota.
The Layout, with over 3000(?) feet of track is loosely based on the State of Minnesota, mostly BN/BNSF and some SOO/CP trackage.
There were approxamitely 10 of us operating various equipment on different ‘jobs’. I brought down all four of my Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific SD40s (as promised and expected) and elected to do some long and heavy hauls on the mainline, winding across the entirety of the layout, twice. The others elected to do local and switch jobs.
The location titles are approxamite, since I’m still learning they whole layout, though most locations are well identified.
Now that I’m a (pending) member, be sure to expect many more club videos, but not just DW&P (though it’s a favorite now and I had many admirers). Next visit has hopes to run Soo 2500 A/B units as seen in a very recent video from my home layout.
I also hope to run BN, AMTK, MRL, UP, CNW and other power in the future. Stay Tuned!
