Large HO Basement Model Railroad Layout Norman Stenzel's HO layout is located in Atlanta GA. The layout fills a 2000 square foot basement and is based on a fictional railroad, the Brandywine & Benedictine. More info on layout can be found here: www.piedmont- Brief Overview: The Brandywine & Benedictine Railroad is a Class 1 Appalachian coal hauler modeled in 1953. It runs north and south from Winston Salem, NC to Pittsburgh, PA. Motive power is a 50/50 mix of steam and first generation diesel power. The railroad is designed with prototype operations in mind with jobs to keep 12 to 16 people busy. The B&B is controlled using Digitrax DCC and a computer running RR&CO software. Layout owner is Norman Stenzel. This layout is located in Atlanta GA. My visit: I and 5 members of the Orlando N-trak club (from Orlando FL) were invited to run on this layout during the Dixie Rail 2010 ops session held October 1 - 3. We visited this layout on Saturday Oct 2nd. Extra Note: At 03:13 The crossing gates sounds are actually coming from the model. The passing train steam audio and freight car audio was dubbed from recordings I made at Cass WV and from a NS freight in Atlanta GA. Extra Note 2: The crossing gates on the layout can be activiated or deactivated by the push button or by sensing the approaching train. All footage recorded by Jared Davis (C) of Whistlepost Productions.

This Was The Rock Island Railroad Purchase at -- The Rock Island Line was a mighty fine line. The musical ditty aside, there was something special about the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad that set it apart from other rail carriers. Maybe it was the image of an underdog, surrounded on all sides by larger, more powerful—and richer—railroads. Maybe it was its short, fast passenger trains—appropriately named Rockets—barreling across the Western Prairies. Maybe it was the granger railroad, quietly and effectively going about serving its customers. Roger Koenig [KANE-ig] grew up in Brainerd on Chicagos South Side. It was the first stop at ground level on the Rock Islands Suburban Branch after leaving the main line at Gresham Junction. He often rode into the city on its trains. Roger worked for two summers as an office boy for the railroad, and built his first home in Oak Forest on the main line to Joliet. His summer home was near the Peoria Branch. No wonder the Rock Island became his favorite railroad. This is Rogers fast-moving movie kaleidoscope of The Rock during its final six years, from 1974 until shortly before the railroad shut down forever on March 31, 1980. Approx. 72 Minutes

Western South Dakota Railroads From the Land of Infinite Variety comes railroading of all varieties! Tourist steam trains, short lines and main lines make western South Dakota a "hot spot" for all railfans! View such railroads as the Black Hills Central, Dakota Southern, Burlington Northern, Dakota Minnesota & Eastern, Chicago & North Western, and Union Pacific. The video begins in the Black Hills and with the 1880 train. This line operates in the summer and takes tourists for a scenic ride between Keystone and Hill City. The Dakota Southern runs over ex-Milwaukee Road rails and runs grain shipments between Kadoka and Mitchell. Burlington Northern trains haul Powder River Basin coal on the Black Hills Subdivision between Dewey and Ardmore in the southwestern most part of the state. The Dakota Minnesota and Eastern pulls freight that is transferred by the Chicago and North Western. The DM&E is seen pulling trains on their PRC line from Rapid City to Pierre. And finally, you view the Colony Line of the late Chicago and North Western, now the Union Pacific. Power from both roads are seen pulling south from Belle Fourche. Copyright 1996, C.

East Broad Top Narrow Gauge Railroad (Awesome Echos!!!) We take a tip to the East Broad Top Narrow Gauge railroad in orbisonia PA. The EBT it the oldest and one of a few operating narrow gauge railroads east of the Mississippi River. The engine that pulls the days train is 2-8-2 #15. Built by the Baldwin locomotive works of Philadelphia Pennsylvania in February 1914. She has an operating boiler pressure pf 180 LBS. The railroad was chartered April 16, 1856 to mine and transport coal from the rich fields of Broad Top Mountain. The railroad did become a reality until the Rockhill Iron & Coal Company was incorporated. In 1919, the EBT was purchased by Madeira Hill & Company. At Mt. Union, MHC established a coal cleaning plant and a "timber transfer." Originally, the timber transfer was used to transfer wood from narrow to standard gauge cars from the McKelvey Brothers Logging Company. When the McKelvey Brothers went out of business in 1933, the timber transfer was used to change the trucks under standard gauge cars to move on the EBT rails until abandonment. Right after closing in 1956, the Kovalchick Salvage Company of Indiana, PA, a large railroad scrapper, bought the railroad and all its assets. In 1960, passenger service was restored to celebrate the bicentennials of Orbisonia and Rockhill. The EBT was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and remains the most comlete and authentic narrow gauge site in America and the last original narrow gauge east of the Rockies. In 2009 the nonprofit EBT Preservation Association ...

Railroad Spur Track Crossing Technique for Bicyclists. Most bicyclists grow up in suburbs, far from railroads, so they are unaware of the danger of crashing when crossing a railroad spur track improperly. These crashes can be prevented by observing the drawings and real life crossings in this video, shot from a Rans Tailwind recumbent bike. Spur tracks leave a main rail line, and often cross an adjacent road at a shallow angle before going to a factory or warehouse. To cross safely, a bicyclist needs to check for bike and motor vehicle traffic ahead and behind, and they need to make sure no train is preparing to use the spur track. If the way is clear, the bicyclist should give a "slowing" signal, and then maneuver in such a way to cross each rail at a 90 degree angle, or as close to a 90 degree angle as possible. If there are other motor vehicles or bicyclists approaching, it may be necessary to stay near the curb, give a "slowing" signal, straddle the bike and walk over the crossing. If you try to ride over the rails at a shallow angle, the rails can zing your wheels out from under you, causing a severe crash. This is most likely if the rails ar wet, but it can happen with dry rails too, especially if the rails are higher than the surrounding pavement. I crossed these same crossings for over 10 years as my main commute route between East Point and Morrow, Georgia, USA. I still use this route for other purposes. Some of it is part of the historic Dixie Highway System that connected the midwest with Florida, before the US ...

The Union Railroad - Steel Industry Shortline in Pittsburgh The Union Railroad services the remnants of the steel industry in the Mon Valley with a small fleet of MP15 and SW1500 locomotives. Here, a scrap train arrives in Duquesne Yard as a cut of empty B&LE hoppers are switched. Later, a trio of blue switchers deliver an empty steel slab train to the US Steel Edgar Thompson Works in Braddock. The Union is one of the few railroads to use cabooses in regular service, due to the large number of backing maneuvers performed. The cabooses are ex-B&LE cabins.

Vintage Ore Railroads C. Vision Productions takes you back in time to view ore hauling railroads from Minnesota and Michigan in the late 1950's to the mid 1980's from the films of Robert C. Anderson. Bob's camera captures the last days of the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range's steam operations in 1959. Missabe's massive 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone's are seen hauling long ore trains across the iron range along with Missabe's 500 series 2-10-2 locomotives in yard service. We are even treated to a cab ride in Yellowstone number 225! Then Bob treats us to the DM&IR's diesel operations from 1972 to 1986. SD-9's and SD-18's were common along with Alco C-630's and newly acquired SD-38 dash 2's. Some non-ore action is seen around the Duluth area including the Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific and Chicago & North Western. Highlights of other ore haulers are seen including Reserve Mining and US Steel. Then it is off to the upper peninsula of Michigan where we find the Milwaukee Road hauling all rail taconite trains in the Iron Mountain region. The Lake Superior and Ishpeming is also featured with recently acquired Baltimore and Ohio Alco RSD-12's. Finally, Bob's camera captures the last days of the Chicago and North Western's FM locomotives in Ore service. Bob follows several FM led trains between Iron Mountain and Escanaba, Michigan. You will be amazed by not only seeing, but also hearing these giant locomotives grind up the grades of the Michigan North Country. Bring back the memories of these great ore haulers in ...

Erie Lackawanna and Erie Western Railroads These are various photos of the former Erie Lackawanna Railroad through Decatur Indiana, also includes the former Pennsylvania RR Station, Penn crossed EL and Nickel Plate on Southside of Decatur. Some of the photos are the current condition of the ROW itself, much of it on the Indiana side has been converted back to farmground. I also included in the the portion of track from Glenmore Ohio, to Ohio City, talk about a "Ghost Junction", Ohio City is it, sure too bad. This also includes photos I recently found on the net of the Erie Western Railway, in and around the Decatur area.The Erie Western was incorporated in August 1977 and began operations under an Interstate Commerce Commission car service order on September 25, 1977 to operate freight service for 158 miles on the former Erie Lackawanna Railway main line from the Indiana/Ohio state line near Wren, Ohio west to Hammond, Indiana. The Erie Western was created because the former main line of the Erie Lackawanna Railway, which went bankrupt in 1972, was not included in the federal government's creation of Conrail, prompting the Erie Western to be formed by shippers and others who wanted to retain and preserve rail service. I am not sure whether or not the Erie Western went as far as Wren Ohio, which is roughly 1 one mile inside the Ohio boarder. The Erie Western stopped operating in June 1979 when the state of Indiana stopped subsidizing it. The Chicago and Indiana (C&I) began operating but did not last long, shutting ...
Railroad Competition in 1920s & 1930s Newer technology in trucks, buses, and road construction provided increased competition for railroads in the 1920s and 1930s. The beginning of passenger airline service also affected railroads. In addition, the Great Depression reduced demand more generally. The effect of both was reflected in rail labor markets in which wage cuts were negotiated. The impact of competition and demand swings is comparable to the impact of deregulation in transportation in the 1980s. In the 1930s, however, rail fares and prices were still set in a regulated framework. The authorities cut prices as noted in the video due to the changing transportation market.

Wheels of Progress - A 1950 Rock Island Railroad Film Pt 1 This film was produced by the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific (Rock Island) Railroad in 1950 to educate customers how their railroad operates and what services are offered as well as new innovations the railroad has incorporated. This film is a great capture of railroading at its finest with both steam and early diesel locomotive power shown. The Rock Island Railroad... Home of some of the fastest passenger trains in the US known as "The Rockets" that traveled up to 100mph out of Chicago. The 1950's looked promising for the railroad, but steadily the overall decline of both freight and passenger traffic by rail led to the decline of The Rock Island. Between 1975 and 1980, the Railroad went went through three bankruptcies and finally ceased operations and was liquidated.

Days of Our Years: Railroad Accidents and Their Effects on Workers and Families (1955) DVD: The Union Pacific Railroad (reporting mark UP) (NYSE: UNP), headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, is the largest railroad network in the United States. James R. Young is president, CEO and Chairman. UP's route map covers most of the central and western United States west of Chicago and New Orleans. As of December 31, 2008 UP operates on 32012 miles (51518 km) of track, of which it owns outright 26171 miles (42118 km). Both numbers represent the highest amount of any railroad currently operating in the United States. It has achieved this size as a result of purchasing a large number of other railroads, notably the Missouri Pacific, Chicago and North Western, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, and the Southern Pacific (including the Rio Grande). Currently, Union Pacific owns 26% of Ferromex while Grupo Mexico owns the remaining 74%. UP's chief railroad competitor is the BNSF Railway, which covers much of the same territory. The Union Pacific Railroad was incorporated on July 1, 1862 in the wake of the Pacific Railroad Act of 1862. Under the guidance of its dominant stockholder Dr. Thomas Clark Durant, the namesake of the city of Durant, Iowa, the first rails were laid in Omaha, Nebraska. The Union Pacific Railroad was joined together with the Central Pacific Railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah, in 1869, hence creating the first transcontinental railroad in North America. Subsequently, UP took over three Mormon-built roads ...

Cass Scenic Railroad - West Virginia USA The Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia is a working museum of logging railroads. This state used to have over 3000 miles of logging lines, sadly they are all gone now, except for this 11 mile line between Cass and the summit at Bald Knob. This is the second highest mountain in West Virginia (4842 feet). This logging line never carried passengers, it's sole purpose was to bring the logs off the mountain, to the mill at Cass, as quickly and as cheaply as possible. To do this a new type of locomotive was needed, a Shay. This engine was different from "normal" engines, it had a drive shaft, allowing all wheels to be driven. This gave total traction on the slippery wet rails. The rails used be the loggers were often laid on un-even trackbeds and it would have been impossible for a standard locomotive to work in these harsh conditions. The Shay was never the fastest locomotive but it was the most sure footed. In total over 2700 Shays were built, sadly today there are only 20 left working. Cass has the largest collection of Shay's and that number is 7. To discover more about the history of this line, the double DVD is available from our website online shop at
