    The Altoona Railroad Museum has placed a new object at the curve. Have you ever wish you could watch the trains go around horseshoe curve without leaving home? Now you can, the museum has placed a webcam up at the curve now and you can watch trains 24/7/365 go around the curve. Here is the link to the website where you can find the webcam: Altoona Railroad Museum Webcam

    Very True Ralph. They should have done it a long time ago, but i guess they didn't think of it until i guess now. Also Ralph, i got an email for my Grandfather, there is a possibility that there might be a 1-1/2 inch scale railroad there. As you may remember i posted pictures of the steamers in this part of the forum and also in the-gauge magazine. I still have to get ahold of my pap to tell him about this LOL :D :D :D

    Robin, Your Welcome. Yes that is a neat website. Gives alot of information.

    I just tried to access the site and was told I had to have Axis Media Control, or some such. This is something I have never even heard of, and it did not indicate how or where to get it. Can anybody help?

    Dave I went to Google and asked it to find Axis Media Control which it did. It is a small exe file in zip mode so download is quick then unzip and the exe does the install. Then go back to the Horseshoe cam and it works.

    The cool thing about this webcam is you can take snap shots of the trains passing by. I found that to be pretty cool :cool: :cool:
