Introduced in 1928 here is my model of "Sir Roger Lumley" A fast 2-CO-1 electric engine used to haul teh Deccan express. Used to cover the Bombay to Poona distance in 2 Hrs and 4 minutes. (The fastest train between Bombay and Poona today, the SC Duronto takes 3 hours).
Here is the finalized track design for my new layout. Lower deck has Bombay Station, upper has Delhi station.
My new layout is on two decks, Below is the tentative design of upper deck. This will have Delhi station and yards, connecting to Bombay station on the lower deck using a Helix.
New Layout Plan is starting to take shape. Layout will be in 2 decks with a Helix connecting the lower and upper deck. Plan below is for lower deck and will have Bombay Station and yard.
I am in the process of moving and my current layout will be replaced with a larger and better layout at my new place. I am in the process of dismantling my layout. Until the new layout is built there will be no new updates. I will blog occasionally.
My WAG12 model on trial runs on my layout (Layout is being demolished and will be replaced by a new one in a new location, with more track and features). This will be the last video for a few months till the new layout is finished.
Here is my 12000 HP double electric locomotive WAG12 which is 9,000 kW at the wheel rim. Made by Alstom of France in India. To be introduced by IR in the Eastern Freight corridor. I will post a video of it soon.

A rare WDM2 Jumbo locomotive operating on my layout. These were WDM2 locos which had full-width short hood; these are unofficially termed 'Jumbos'. These were apparently produced with the idea of improving the visibility for the drivers
A video of a WDM2 starting from cold position, honking its horn and then shutting down. This is to demonstrate the startup/shutdown sequence of some of my WDM2 locos.
Here a Motorized Crane and a Tamping Machine are maintaining a track at the Bombay Yard. They start out and then reverse to run a second pass on the track.
I am of Indian descent and moved to the USA in Mid 1970's. Model Railroads and Model Remote Controlled Aircraft are my two hobbies both of which I have been pursuing since my childhood in India.
