Welcome to the Gilshart Model Railroading website, my counterpart to the Gilshrat YouTube channel. This website is a labor of love that combines my interest in model railroading and video making. Here I have provided some in depth information about my train layouts, pictures of my train "adventures," and some helpful links for beginner model railroaders. I consider myself a YouTube hobbyist. So the quality of my videos may not be at the professional level, but I do my best. And I try to create helpful and interesting content.
Trains in Japan
In July 2017, I left for Japan to teach English as part of the JET Program. While here in Japan my love of trains has not disappeared. In fact, it's gotten even stronger since Japan is a country that loves its trains, both real and miniature. As such, I am sharing my train experiences on my Gilshrat channel and this website. I live in the Kansai region near the cities of Kyoto, Osaka, and Kobe. The region is Japan's second most populace area after Tokyo. As such there are a lot of railroading things to do and see, including one of the largest train museums in Japan, the Kyoto Railway Museum. So expect to see videos and pictures of my railroading adventures in Japan.
