Thomas Operates on the Monticello Railway Museum


When model railroaders get together to operate, they usually speak in terms of what the gauge and scale of the layout they’ll be working on happens to be. In this case. Thomas (NOT the famous locomotive, but one of our newest members) decided he wanted to operate some large scale equipment, REALLY large scale,  as in 1:1!

I got to ride along for the price of a coach seat and record the event for posterity. I used an iPhone 6 for the video, mounted in a Zhiyun Smooth-Q gyro-stabilized camera mount. This made it easy to take good video and when I learn how to use it better it might look even better. For now, it’s not a bad video at all. Enjoy!
