Shooting the GLA 11 video was very special. It was also the longest video shoot I have ever done for an OGR video. What took so long to shoot this one? e layouts! e two 3-rail layouts in this video are truly world-class! Although there are two 3-rail layouts in this video, they could not be more different. Bill Bramlage has built one of the finest "loop runner" display layouts in the world. Bill coined loop runner to describe his method of operation. Like most 3-rail layouts, several loops of track encircle the layout, which fills his basement. It features a carnival, Happy Valley, a massive fireworks display, and a huge big-city area he calls Tower City. And tower it does! He has a 9ยด ceiling in his basement, and many of the tall buildings almost touch the ceiling. ere are over 10,000 lights on this layout lighting the buildings, building interiors, scenery, signs, roads, parking lots, and many other items and places. With the room lights turned down, the layout absolutely sparkles! Bob Bartizek's Pennsylvania & Western Railroad is the most unusual 3-rail O scale layout I have ever seen. Bob models the Pennsylvania Railroad, and his P&W includes a well-done model of the world- famous PRR Horseshoe Curve. e scenery, rolling stock, and motive power on this model railroad are outstanding. He enjoys prototypical operation, and his layout design is taken right out of the HO scale playbook. It is a single-track main line with passing sidings and a staging yard at each end of the main line. If you're not quite sure what that means, you'll have to watch the video to find out. Drawing on the modeling philosophy of Frank Ellison's Delta Lines, Bob's trains come on stage, perform their role in a "stage show," and then go off stage ready to appear again in the next operating session.
