    Check out this "train cam" video, it takes a very long time to load, but it is well worth it ! This layout must be about the size of New Jersey... it is awesome, even on the small screen. Once again, it takes an unusually long time to "load", but stay with it.... and it will play.

    No doubt! Wasn't that almost 20 minutes? Though, when I visited the San Diego Model Railroad Museum, it took one of the HO guys 1hr 45 minutes to go from bottom to top and back down again. That second song sounded remarkably like "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitgerald." Same artist? Can anybody collaborate that?

    Gordon Lightfoot sang that, and it did sound like him. The video trip was 17 minutes plus, and (correct me if I'm wrong) I didn't see the same scenery repeated anywhere in the whole movie. The Edmonton club lists it's mainline track as 380 feet plus, and they have quite an impressive website. I'll bet opertaions night is something to remember...

    Wow, that was awesome. Of course it makes my layout look dull and potato like.

    I had trouble with your link. Even after I replaced the .ca with .com. It kept taking me to Sexy Albanian Singles:oops: :oops:
    I found it here http://www.infoharvest.ab.ca/EMRA/emra.html
    Care to hazard a guess as to what the annual dues are for this club? I looked but did not find them immediately apparent.
