Amtrak & Thomas The Tank Engine On A New Layout

Thomas The Tank Engine gets to run on an all-new layout that stretches from my garage, up the sidewalk to my next-door neighbor’s driveway, and loops around through my garden to return back to my garage.

I also run a scale model of an Amtrak diesel passenger train on the layout.

At the controls is my six-year-old neighbor, Maddox, running things from a tablet… thanks to a DCC control system, MRC WiFi, and Engine Driver software.

If you like model trains or toy trains, I think you’ll enjoy seeing my G-scale train layout.

Rather than have a permanent layout that never changes, I like to set up a new and different layout each time I play with my model trains. The layout you see in this video existed for less than one full day!
