Second YouTube Video - Michigan Interstate
This video was taken during an operating session on Greg McComas' HO Scale Michigan Interstate Railroad. On this job I play the role of engineer and Dan Munson is the conductor. We are using the inbound power from train M-MCBA-09 to switch outbound train M-BAPH-10.
The engines are MCIS SD22ECOs 2290 and 2291 - rebuilt from Atlas SD35s as ECO upgrades with EMD 8-cylinder 710 prime movers. The models are equipped with EMD 710 sound decoders which greatly enhance the operating experience.
There is quite a bit of momentum programmed into the units as is evidenced by observing the train movement and listening to the instructions coming from the conductor.
Taking this video was an exercise in multi-tasking as I am controlling the train using the WiThrottleLite App on my iPhone with my left hand and filming with a Sony Handycam with my right hand.
