Thunder Mesa Video Log: April 8, 2016

April 2016 Video Log
Howdy Folks! So much has been happening out here in Thunder Mesa Country that it’s hard to know where to begin. The right of way has been changed, towns have been moved, combined or added, and entire areas have been reimagined. On top of all that, a lot of real progress has been made bringing these changes to life with new scenery work and modeling at Horse Thief Canyon and the town of Thunder Mesa well underway. The best way to get caught up on things is with a new video log!

Thunder Mesa Video Log: Oct 31, 2015

It’s a Happy Haunted Halloween Video Log for the On30 Thunder Mesa Mining Company! Today we delve deep into the most terrifying topic in model railroading: Track Maintenance! See how the trains are kept running on the TMMC with a special focus on the use of NO-OX to improve conductivity. I don’t own the music sampled.

First Train Through Coyote Canyon

Track laying and wiring through new sections of the railroad has been completed and here’s a quick sneak-peek at the first train running through Coyote Canyon. There’s no scenery here yet and the bridges are temporary, but soon this will be home to a dramatic gorge over 100 scale feet deep.
