Today, due to draconian government regulations concerning content on platforms such as YouTube, I have deleted my Hitop channel with videos from my layout. Although of course these were model railroad videos, and from what I understand from what I have read concerning the regulations meant to protect children under the age of thirteen, I would have had to mark my video content “not for children under 13” which is ludicrous. Model railroading should be a hobby for ALL ages. However, it is now apparently up to the FTC to determine what channels and content is and isn’t appropriate for this age group. Therefore, going forward, I will only post occasional videos as blog posts, and keep my fingers crossed this government doesn’t further erode my rights…..

I have been a railfan since the age of 6, and a modeler since the age of fourteen. This is my first fully (well not quite) completed model railroad. I fell in love with trains early in life, ride them when I can, have volunteered on many steam fan trips and have ridden many more steam excursion trips, have belonged to several model rr clubs, and did a stint as a brakeman/conductor on a midwest regional railroad. My layout was published in Model Railroader magazine in 2016. I hope all of you enjoy the ride here on my site! View all posts by stevecampbell60
