TRAIN ARRIVES AT EARLS COURT A steam-hauled passenger train ran through part of the Metropolitan Railway tunnels for the first time since 1905. The rare event, a closely-guarded secret, occurred shortly after 1am on Sunday December 16, as part of the build-up to the 2013 celebrations marking 150 years of the Met. Newly-overhauled Metropolitan Railway 0-4-4T No. 1 is seen arriving at Earl’s Court station to pick up around 30 invited guests, carried in restored Met coach No. 353. The train consisted of Met No. 1, still unlined following its restoration by Bill Parker’s Flour Mill workshops at Bream in the Forest of Dean, followed by the former Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Railway coach, a low-sided wagon carrying spare plastic containers of water, with vintage Met electric Bo-Bo No. 12 Sarah Siddons on the back. For the planned public steam runs over the District and Circle lines on Sundays January 13 and 20, for which demand for the £150-180-a-seat tickets proved so overwhelming that a ballot had to be held, No. 1 and No. 353, which underwent running in trials at the Great Central Railway in November, will be joined by the four-coach Chesham set of wooden-bodied coaches from the Bluebell Railway.

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Watch in HD! First, the Lionel Legacy R30 leaves the elevated main line and travels down the ramp to the ground level yard. Once the R30 Redbird stops in the yard, the Lionel Legacy R16 leaves the yard and heads up the ramp to the mainline. Once on the main, the doors open for a station stop then heads into Mt. Mchugh. All the action is on the 2011 Pearl River Train Show O Gauge Toy/Subway layout.

What’s wrong with my lionel?

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Question by Christine: What’s wrong with my lionel?
I bought my son a lionel train a few christmas’s ago. It’s the new york central flyer. We set it up and he didn’t touch the buttons to make the sounds and the bell was going off and the whistle was going off. It would go on non-stop. He was really upset that his train is possibly broken. Please help tell me what is wrong with it.
