Grab a chair, turn off the news and spend the day railfanning in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont, circa 1981. Thanks to Rapido Trains for their beautiful RS-18's, the staple of CP Rail power in Vermont. Sorry for the oversize captions, Vegas Movie maker is far from good....but enjoy nonetheless.

I love this layout. The tight shots really allow the viewer to suspend disbelief. So realistic, it’s scary (in a good way). 👌

Layout looks great, i like how backdrop is still interesting when the trains are gone and it looks like an August day out for a walk...

My friend this layout is just absolutely superb!!👌 And I must add as a Canadian Model Railroader, I love that you called the CP caboose a 'van'. Well done!

This is amazing! Around 1980, my father, brother, and I spent a week at a cottage on Lake Memphromagog. I remember we had to cross the tracks in order to get to the beach, and I remember taking pics of the trains coming through that area! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

I like the era you model, retro CP and B&M.

Wonderful job on your scenery and equipment weathering. Nothing "over the top", so it All blends and gives the feeling of being there. Thx...

The beautiful thing about modeling this era is there was no graffiti. This is without a doubt the most breathtakingly realistic layout I’ve seen on YouTube. Your videos totally capture my imagination.

Thank you for a nice long video this time. My God, if my layout turns out half this good (and I'm not so sure it will even do that) I'll be happy. Something to shoot for though!
