TMTV Station Agent

The Birth of TrainMasters TV, part 2

In part 1, I pitched my idea for a railroad hobbyists' TV series called Wheels on Steel to the TV network and they liked the idea, so I set out to make a pilot short for the series.

I chose United Aircraft's Turbotrain as the subject matter and told the story of the Turbo through Jason Shron whose company, Rapido Trains Inc., produces an HO-scale model of the Turbo.  It took weeks to get around to shooting the segment, and for many months the footage sat untouched while work took precedence.
