The TMMC has come a long way in the past couple of years and I sincerely thank everyone for their input, comments and advice. There's still so much more to do. Ready for part II? Let's go!

Beautiful work!

Great video Dave. Nice to see Verne's town again.
friscomike Posted - 12/01/2020 : 05:25:08 AM

Nice work on the layout and videos. Thanks!

Inspiring and admirable work Dave! Another fan of BTM (Paris version) here! Thanks for posting these.
Rick Posted - 11/29/2020 : 08:22:13 AM
Yet another entertaining video.

Many people on this forum fondly remember the late Verne Niner and his wonderful On30 Estrella & Sonora Grande layout. This week's video shows how his award wining San Lorenzo village diorama lives on as the Old Spanish section of Thunder Mesa town. Enjoy!

Thanks! I wasn't sure if you were loading and dumping as part of your operations or not.
Arizona Dave Posted - 11/21/2020 : 10:47:39 PM
Sure, I just swapped them out in the video. In actual operations, the ore loads are removable from the cars. They are made from solid blocks of foam, painted and decorated with a covering of raw "ore."
thayer Posted - 11/21/2020 : 10:44:01 PM
Another great visit to the Thunder Mesa, thank you!

Can you talk about how you fill the ore cars when you spot them here? Do you have some sort of loading bin in the rock work, or were they just reset for the video? I did notice that that cars spotted looked fresh from the free box, while the loaded ones have seen a bit more service.


Arizona Dave Posted - 11/21/2020 : 10:42:26 PM
Thanks for watching, guys!
Bill Gill Posted - 11/21/2020 : 9:16:29 PM
More good stuff, Dave. Thanks for posting.
Rick Posted - 11/21/2020 : 6:55:23 PM
Dave, I'm falling behind watching your vids.
I'll try to get caught up tomorrow.
Thanks for posting them.
