Thomas Kimoski’s built an operates a really great HO scale layout based on the Georgia Northeastern. The TrainCrew app was recently featured in one of his update videos. Check out his awesome layout and a great demo of how to use TrainCrew during ops.
I realized that computers and smart phones could help us create a more engaging model railroad operations experience after reading Lance Mindheim’s excellent book on modern shelf layout operations. The TrainCrew app that I’ve built does just that.
Now that I have things more or less running on the layout, I can start thinking about operations. These are a few documents I’ve created to help get things started, and to make it easy for visiting operators to understand what’s going on with their jobs and the layout. They also make nice souvenirs.
