Our friend Don (Model Memories) emailed it to me.  I don't know where he found it but I'll ask.

This is a current day NH (Amtrak) related video of the operation of my favorite RR bridge, the 100+ year-old Cos Cob, the compressed length model of which I hope to finish (along with the layout) in my life time.
Notice the open track derailer switches in the final sequence.

In-progress model images (use of your imagination required):  Many thanks to Model Memories for the etched brass Cos Cob bridge parts and electrical and catenary wire bridges.

Thanks Joe:


I hope to get back at it in the fall. The summer is for being outside as much as possible.
