Review of The Hobby Run Amuck - Building a Live Steam RR - Tom Miller

 3.8 of 5 (4)
When Tom Miller was a boy, he built his first model locomotive with his dad. From then on he was hooked! Now a Master Model Builder, Tom designs and builds 2.5-inch scale live steam models for his own 20-acre layout. Built around a 7-1/2" track gauge, Tom's exquisitely scaled locomotives and rolling stock raise the bar for live steam layouts.

In this program you will see Tom's entire layout, shop, the two K 30 locomotives he built, and some of the 60+ cars in his barn, plus Tom's own narrative of how he designed and built this fantastic layout. You will travel more than two miles of track through Tom's 325-foot tunnel, over the 410-foot trestle with a truss bridge 30 feet above the creek, through cuts, past passenger platforms, coaling towers, and watering stations, over switches, and by dozens of working signals and other features that make Tom Miller's live steam layout unique.

Now, put yourself in the cab of Tom Miller's K-36 Mikado and open the throttle for a loop aro
