Fantastic Videos of Outdoor G Scale Model Train Layouts
G Scale Snow Plow Engine
In this video a G Scale engine with a snow plow is actually running outdoors on track with about three inches of fresh snow on the track - and it is easily clearing the snow off of the track. The train doesn't seem to have any trouble with the snow, not coming off the track or even being slowed down too much. Unbelievable! Here I wouldn't want to run a G Scale outdoors in any inclement weather, and this setup was clearly waiting for it - and having a great deal of fun with it. It looks to me as if this train is comprised of a smaller engine with a plow, a larger engine behind it, three freight cars, and then a caboose - but I could be mistaken. The description says "In this video, plow train #5319 clears the mainline to allow the westbound California Zephyr to make it through".
This is an incredible trestle someone has constructed in their backyard. At one point you do see that the highest section is actually taller than a person standing next to it. This is taken from the train's point of view, so you never actually see the engine or cars.
U.P. Intermodal Freight Train
This a simple video of a freight train running along a fence. Brief, but very clear and well done.
G Scale Layout Tour - Part One
This is a phenomenal layout, in a very rocky back yard. The narrator gives a wealth of information on the construction and evolution of the it all. Some great bridges, trestles, and tunnels in this yard.
