My O scale trains’ “Thanksgiving Rush” 2010

Friday, November 30th, 2012

The night before Thanksgiving I usually operate special trains on my O scale layout for the Thanksgiving holiday, to simulate the heavy passenger load on the railroads during this time. I call it the “Thanksgiving Rush” and things can get interesting! To keep up with the high passenger demand, I add passenger equipment to virtually every train, making mixed consists of freight and passenger cars. This is the only day out of the entire year I do this. This video features all of my Thanksgiving Rush trains. The first two are normal trains – a Standard O freight led by my Lionel Norfolk Southern SD80MAC, and a 4-car Amtrak train powered by my MTH Genesis. Next off are two mixed trains – one powered by my Chicago & North Western Budd RDC by Ready Made Trains, and the other a mammoth consist of Amtrak passenger cars and O27 freight cars pulled by my Lionel BNSF SD70ACe. The last two trains are the Polar Express and a mixed train with my Norfolk Southern SD80MAC. Before these trains are assembled, you’ll get to see my Polar Express Berkshire showing off its pulling power, pulling the Amtrak-freight consist off of the layout. After the action is over, my NS SD80MAC pushes the cars of the “Nutcracker Express” into place and parks in the train yard. The holidays are here, everyone! Have a happy Thanksgiving!
