Sam Towler’s amazing model of Disneyland’s Mine Train Thru Nature’s Wonderland attraction filmed at the 2016 Railroad Days Celebration in Fullerton, CA. This fantastic On30 model railroad was the hit of the show and lovingly recreates this long lost Disney attraction in elaborate, often animated, detail – right down to the themed trashcans! Enjoy.
A trip through Rainbow Caverns on the On30 Thunder Mesa Mining Company model railroad. This is just a preview of some of the ultraviolet lighting effects working so far at Staircase Falls and Rainbow Falls. More scenes are planned at the Crystal Grotto, Bottomless Pit, and Color Changing Pools. Stay tuned!
After the creation of Nature’s Wonderland National Monument in 1906, the railroad wasted little time in promoting the line to tourists back east. Here we have some early “historic” footage promoting the Thunder Mesa Mining Co. and the many scenic wonders that could be enjoyed along the line.
Please enjoy this video tour of my On30 Thunder Mesa Mining Company layout as it has evolved and grown over the passed 4 years. What started as a simple 3’x6′ display now occupies a footprint of more than 15’x9′ and continues to grow with new scenes, structures, rolling stock, and special effects being added all the time. The music used is by the great Louis Armstrong and is not owned by me. Thanks for watching.
