Bill-you made it!! The old Mogollon Railway is up & running but at this hour, the crew is down at Nacho Mama's saloon for the evening. The MRy now has an operating winch (maybe wench) to pull loaded ore cars up the new 16% grade. A loco and one car barely made the grade, so the winch was needed to get the ore out from the Lost Scotchman Mine which is in the bottom of a deep canyon. Some fun, huh?

Mayor...

I'm still trying to figure out how to reply and such things. This is my second effort, but my first reply to Paladin must have caught him in the middle of the night down under.

I can see the new MRy from the kitchen window but the mud has kept me shut up.

Good to hear from you! I'm off to the doctor's office and maybe the other doctor's office,too.

For those that have not seen the latest incarnation of the Mogollon Ry, here are a few shots before Woodie started the last two sections.  This by no means covers all the railway, just the middle portion really.


 Turntable


The high line (to the ore bins) leaves the low line (for the wax camps).  And believe me, Mogollon engines climb this grade several times daily


One of the ore bins on the high line


A little 0-4-0 switches the ore bin


The "city" of Mogollon

Enjoy

Jim

could do --  Sound  ---  Lighting -- Special effects --- Coupling and uncoupling -- transponding --- loco detection ---  computer control  --  switch machine control from the tracks  --  hook up of locos --  animation with out running wires -- realist speeds and acceleration to suit different locos.
I do understand that most of us do not want all of these features, I don't
In the early 1900's moving picture shows came into being, then they added sound,  and colour, I for one would not even think of going to see a silent movie in preference to one with all the bells and whistles.

I must say I thought you would bite a bit stronger, for I do understand how passionate you are about R/C.

Only stirring the pot Woodie.

Don

Don-I'm not going to get into all that, I am having fun just running my pokey little trains. As for animated stuff, I do have r/c CAT tractors, r/c rotary car dumper for the smelter, operating conveyor to take ore to the furnace, operating V tipper dump, operating hoist for a heavy grade-I don't think most are interested in this stuff so I don't mention it very much. What it "boils down to" is that I have enough imagination to not worry about the bells & whistles just as long as the trains run great...and they do run great. There's room for everybody to have fun in this hobby.

I, for one sir would be interested in this type of stuff. I am hoping to do some of this stuff to my layout eventually, and any inspiration does help to fuel the imagination.

As it happens, if you go to YOUTUBE.COM and put in model train rotary dumper to search, you will see about 1 minute of the rotary and conveyor in action. Have fun,
