Up to part 5 on my Park Gulch Project.
Always takes longer then you think it is going to. Even when you are already thinking that.

A "Turnout" with no moving parts. And Park Gulch Part 5

New video.
More work on Park Gulch.

Tried an idea that Jeff Young had done in making roots hanging over a cut.
I used material I had laying around. And not felt. Later in time I did get some felt. And it worked better.

Thank you Jeff!
I still need to come back around to that area I used the felt. Need to get some life in place. Not sure when I will get back to it.

New video up.
I added dirt to the King City Coal Mine and surrounding area.
The ceiling tile is looking good. Even with just a preliminary coat of paint.

Been a little while since I have posted in this thread.
That is because I only post a link to one of my videos here, if I feel it is related to the Colorado Southern part of my layout.

So with that in mind.
My latest video is my first ever Layout Tour.
And in this first part, I cover all of the narrow gauge layout.
So you can get a good overview of all of it.

After this video I have gotten it to run through Kenosha Pass. Witch heads back down to Como. Making a nice big loop. Or you could run it point to point.
Need to adjust a couple of turnouts. But it does work.

And now I have video of the train making its way over Kenosha Pass.
Still just track and bench work. But it looks great in my mind.
