After scanning the old 'tube for a long while, I have selected the six most appealing videos that document n-scale realism. The selection is based on realistic impression, detail (landscaping and models), and camera use.
N-scale model railroading has gained ground over the years. One reason is that the 1:160 scale, while small, provides superior overall realism
. This first example shows a bridge scene at three angles, then an overview shot of the entire part of the layout, and a shot of the prototype scene.
Here is the Thompson River Canyon
at various angles. Again, we're gradually getting more information about "how it's done".
This PRR layout video
treats us on the Simpsons movie soundtrack, instead of overlaid diesel sounds...
Some spectacular sunset closeups of the Santa Fe El Capitan here
Bob Norris's "Somewhere West" layout
must be mentioned here too, as well as the ATSF Super Chief
For a full appreciation of these clips, I probably should include one
of the less realistic kind as well (Austrian accent and geeky text as a bonus).
