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.

NOTHING EXCESSIVE ABOUT THE HORN NOISES loloops too loud expression..
seriously very impressed I would LOVE to see it in person, some details as
to how long it took, how much thought was placed on it, I noticed the
A-team van on the streets so I wonder if there is trouble among the
building tenants lol, mirrors certainly added the depth of the streets,
awesome engineer's tan line (as in farmer john tan from us truckers arm out
the window), but mostly its the sync of when and how much train sounds are
applied, I LOVE IT -just in case you couldn't hear my words lol, Vic its
truly a work of art and passion, after 4 years I am soo fond of it
remaining in my top 3 video collection you have no idea how much the video
and sync of the sounds means to me, here's to another 4 or more years? !!
