The City Edge Layout - Street Running Scenes - by Vic Smith

This 10 minute video highlights the City Edge layout created and built by Vic Smith. This layout is located near Lambert International Airport in Bridgeton, Mo, a suburb of St. Louis. Featuring street running and Kato's Amtrak night running scenes along with Broadway's Union Pacific AC6000's transporting Athearn and Intermountain double stack units across the city's elevated rail structure by Micro Engineering. Along with a nostalgic trip of Broadway Limited Santa Fe's War Bonnet F7's pulling a set of lighted California Zephyr cars while a trio of NW2 switcher engines carefully perform some street running down Market Street. This layout runs a variety of trains and rolling stock from many different eras for a wide range of entertainment for layout visitors. New HD video of the layout will be available with an array of prototype scenes set in the 1980's.
