28:20 - Oct 2015 Bonus 2 - Chasing coal trains (2015)

In Allagash Railfan Series volume 2, we follow coal trains over the Allagash. We chase trains across the entire scenic line both directions, enjoying many of the Allagash’s highlights. We watch big coal trains passing through classic small town Maine, and witness coal trains threading the deep rock cut at Holman Summit. It's the excitement and drama of big-time railroading as we chase coal trains in volume 2 of the Allagash Railfan series!

This is such an outstanding series and I am so glad it is available on TMTV. Mike you have completed so much work to the layout since the Op Session video. I hope you will continue to make these great videos going forward. It would be great to see another Operating Session video too. 

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful model railroad!

a fantastic series.  great editing also.

I could almost believe this was 1:1 scale not a model railroad. Marvellous!!!

Thanks for the comment on the production values Joe. That means a lot. I worked hard to get this thing as good as possible from a video editing and sound stand point. Thanks to Joe Fugate for giving me some really good pointers too.

Mike, thanks for another superb video! The atmospheric scenes in Weld have to be seen to be believed, and shout out classic New England!
