Thank you, need to click & down load the video link from the Cloud, then open it up in order for the video to start working, takes a couple of minutes, i just tried it off this posting, unless the link only works on my lap top?  Bayway Terminal NJ

Personally, I wouldn't download any video from anyone's cloud - if that is possible.  Can you just post the video on YouTube?

I clicked the link and got the video.  So far as I know no clouds were involved.

I ran it as a test.  It downloaded correctly for me, but it is THREE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-NINE MEGABYTES.

It should be posted to YouTube and linked as a streaming file from there.

I've never clicked on a link before in this forum that automatically downloaded.  Yes it is that big a file.  I have fiberoptic internet connection, so it's fast.

Forum rules say we aren't supposed to advertise, but why does thanking XYZ for installing my decoder any different than saying I bought gears from NWSL, or trains from MTS? 

Makes me afraid to post James Wright's latest video.  He's been busy with work.  He has also gained a lot of weight.  Looks like his yard has 8 tracks of autocarriers, maybe 15 feet long.  It's huge and 98% unscenicked. 180' of mainline.

I digress.  As to the loco in question, it sounds great and is beautiful, as if it came out of the paint shop.  It needs some weathering.

My lap top automatically sends large size files to the cloud system for downloading, next time I will try sending a more condenced file in a different program.

Thank you for the complement, it's my first brass purchase in 30 years of model railroading. I'm adding a few cars behind the engine, a Keystone logging caboose,  a Burrows crane car, & two 20' log buggies. After i'm done building these kits i will start the weathering process on the cars, but not sure if i should have the engine & tender professionally weathered?  Bayway Terminal NJ

Sweet! I could see it pulling two or three Kadee or Rivarossi skelton cars. Weathering could be really simple, like a light black wash. These guys were proud of their engines and kept them clean.

Love the saddle tank mallets with curved tanks!!!! You need a string of log skels behind that loco and yes I would weather it (but then again, I weather everything). Don't stop at just two log cars....Looks like it runs well and sounds good..

 

Congratulations,

Thank you, I have a modern era industrial switching layout with all diesel power, but i'm planning a layout expansion which may include a logging camp operation, especially since purchasing the Mallet. Bayway Terminal NJ

I have a modern era industrial switching layout with all diesel power, but i'm planning a layout expansion which may include a logging camp operation, especially since purchasing the Mallet.

I was wondering.  I guess that explains the UPS truck and the Conrail unit in the background.

Yes, my swiching layout is 14'x3' with an intermodel container - port terminal at one end and an electric arc furnace / steel mill at the other end. I'm in process of planning a major expansion that will incude a staging yard W a ladder system, together a with a Liquid Butane Terminal. I'm an industrial real estate broker and like to model what i sell & lease during the day on my HO layout. Unfortunatey we don't have any logging operations here in New Jersey.   Bayway Terminal NJ

You can argue that the owner of the mill was an excentric steam engine lover, and used his pet engine way past its bedtime. Like this one:
