The popular cable show, DIY Network now includes a new series called "Workin on the Railroad." The show will include visits to elaborate model railroads across the country and discussions with the modelers who created them. In addition, each one of the five episodes includes master model railroader Ted Brown and guests demonstrate how to design and construct a layout, lay and wire track, create realistic landscapes and buildings and put together a freight-car kit.

For more information on this series, including show times, visit the DIY Network Web site.

I'm onto #6. Great videos.

So Dennis, lets see a picture of you in railroading dungarees, a drivers cap and a red scarf around your neck.

All aboard!
Dang, that fiddle and banjo is irritating. How can they listen to that all day.

Look forward to more of these. The last two seem to be better quality. Rich has bought a better handy cam.

Looking at the #20a. Does the equivalent of these big clubs exist in the UK where dispatchers (or Fat controllers) organize the drivers and signal men on complex operational layouts?

I have seen large club layouts in France, but I've never seen any complex organization of train-order-routing and operation.
I must say that I am fascinated with American railroading. It won't find a place on my layouts, but it is interesting all the same.
