Review of Model Railroad Operation Vol 1 - Running A Freight Railroad DVD

Follow the MR Video Plus crew as they show you how to set up a layout for operation from start to finish, using the HO scale Beer Line. On this DVD, you’ll learn how to figure out the types and frequency of freight cars required by your industries. You’ll also see how to add a car routing system, make job cards, and set your layout up for its first operating session. As a bonus, the crews take you along as they work three different jobs on the line, so you can see how all of the pieces serve to turn any layout into a working railroad.
