Train Mountain Triannual

Any one care to post their Trianneal photos and video’s? Lots of eye candy and a fantastic layout! My humble contribution was rail biking 10 miles. Great Fun!

Hmm, won’t accept my railbike video. Foiled again. Maybe latter.

Couple more shots of the miniature RR infrastructure at TM. The water towers are all functional! Downspouts and everything.

And finally, a link to a you tube video of railbiking down the Panama Canal. The Aquifna bottle isn’t an advertisement. I didn’t realize it would show up so prominently in the video as I was filming.

The new track work at TM is a major achievement. I understand this long grade was pretty bumpy and uneven previously. Now, a very exciting ride! Can’t wait to do it again.

Looks like you were crusing at a good clip for a little bit! LOL!

Yes, a long, glorious, speedy, ride to the bottom. I touched on 10 mph at one point. Steady as a rock on the new track.

Another railbiking adventure during the recent triannual. This was a traverse of the Dogbark grade.
