C&OHS Member Ted Pamperin’s C&O Model Layout Video DVD
Just released -- a professionally composed/photographed video illustrating operations on C&OHS member Ted Pamperin’s fabulous HO scale layout, including very realistic operations, exactingly prototypical signaling, and highly detailed cars and locomotives. Included are Alleghany, Hinton, Thurmond, Hawks Nest, and others. C&O steam locomotives of various types; some 13 wheel arrangements used. – ADDED ATTRACTION is the Mann’s Creek narrow gauge railroad that delivered coal to C&O at Sewell, W. Va.
The scenes show over 35 trains in prototypical locations. Added attractions are the building of model equipment and scenery illustrated.
This CD was many years in the making, and the layout itself a lifetime work. – Runtime 4 hours.
Highly recommended. – Tom Dixon
