Turbocam! (Warning: May Cause Motion Sickness)

If you easily get motion sickness, this may not be a video for you!

Someone put a video camera on the front of a Rapido Trains Turbo Train, then operated the train at full speed around the layout. All I can say is: Wow!

Especially impressive is when the Turbo with the camera passes another Turbo going the other way. Blink, and you'll miss it.

The video doesn't note the location, but I think the action takes place on the West Island Modular Club layout in Dorval, Quebec. This is the same layout that posted a video of a 30-car Turbo Train.

Update: As the commenter below notes, this was indeed shot on the West Island club layout.

If you'd like to see the Turbo in a more normally-sized length and sedately operation, click here to view it during a visit to the Selkirk, Man. Model Railway Club layout.

  1. Yes this video was shot at the WIMRC club location in Dorval.

    Gino is the owner of all these Turbo cars as well as modifying the engines to be able to run with that kind of load behind it....

    It is a wonderful video Gino has done...
