Great video.

Having watched it several times I must say I am impressed

The point that struck me was the scenery comes to life, with the motion almost second.  It requires one to take in the scenery with out staying in the one place.

Very realistic.

You hit the head on the nail with this layout, it's got a little bit of everything but it's not too much all at once, awesome. :thumb: Very well done.

WOW! :bow:

Dan and John,

Hats off to a project that will entertain and spark the imagination to others. The modeling skills are fantastic!

I got hooked on "Dolly" at a clinic. I have since been searching out material on this RR. Thru the book, "Steel Rails and Silver Dreams" and the first stills that that were posted on your project I was impressed. Now the movie!

The bar has been set very high!!!

The design direction I am heading on my home layout will use the DVRR as its backbone, only continuing along as if it survived. Will you or could you upload a layout plan to this thread?

Hi all,

thanks for the comments.

BMWorks...can supply any layout plans, there weren't any!!!  It started out as a bit of a rough sketch, and contoured with gradients as I went.  Only real plan was knowing it had to go uphill!!!  Essentially it runs from the wharf to the mine, much like the prototype.

Cheers,

Dan Pickard

Hi Dan,

My name is Brett Douglas I have been trying to contact you.

Could you please call me on xxxxxxxxxx as soon as you can please.

Thanks very much.

Brett



It's not a good idea to have your phone number posted in any public area, unless it is the phone book.

I have sent the number on to Dan via private message, and blocked it out here.

Dave
