Grand Central turns 100 in 2013 and the New York Transit Museum is starting the party early with its 11th Annual Holiday train Show! In a brand new layout built by Lionel, model Metro-North and New York Central trains depart from a miniature GCT on a 34′ long two level "O" gauge layout. Vintage model trains from the Museum’s collection and New York Central Railroad posters from the 1920s – 1940s are also on display.

The show, at the Transit Museum’s annex at Grand Central, runs from November 21, 2012, through February 10, 2013.

Lionel 6-28029 Union Pacific BIG BOY from 1999, with Command Control – kgtrains – ebay

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Lionel 6-28029 Union Pacific BIG BOY 4-8-8-4 Steam Locomotive & Tender with Command Control The Big Boy was loved by the crews that ran her for her ease of firing and great boiler; she was much easier to fire than the challenger and was often run by inexperienced crews during WW2. (Because of man power shortages) This is Lionel’s excellent 1999 version, it has tmcc cab-1 control. The Union Pacific Big Boy, all one million pounds of it, ruled the Wahsatch Mountains for nearly 20 years. This mighty leviathan thrashed through the mountains day after day, year after year, pulling as much as 4200 tons behind its massive bulk. The inspiration for Lionel’s reproduction, the 4006 had more service miles than any of the other Big Boy locomotives when it was retired in 1961. Your wait is over-enjoy the powerful and majestic Lionel BIG BOY on your layout today! •High Torque Pittman motor •Die-cast boiler, frame and tender •Articulated RailSounds 4.0 with TowerCom, CrewTalk and DynaChuff •TrainMaster Command Control equipped •All 16 driver wheels powered •Wireless tether •Fan driven smoke generator •Detailed cab interior •Firebox glow •Engineer & Fireman figures •Operating headlight •Directional lighting •Tender mounted ElectroCoupler •Operates on 072 diameter or greater curves •Approximate length 32″ •Instructions included

【一畑】 前面展望・デハ60形廃車回送

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

2006.10.22 一畑電車 川跡駅構内に長い間留置してあったデハ60形(デハ61・デハ62)が廃車のため、車輌課のある雲州平田へ回送されました。 デハ60形は西武鉄道の551系電車を両運転台に改造した車輌ですが、ワンマン化改造を施してないことに加え、京王・南海からの冷房車転入により活躍の場を追われ、長い間 川跡駅の側線に留置され続けていました。 この回送列車運転に際して、川跡駅での仕業検査と、川跡~雲州平田間の前面展望を収録することができました。 本作は、以前2作に分割して公開したものをYouTubeの規格拡張により、1本にまとめて再編集したものです。 HQ(fmt=18)対応のワイド画面になっていますが、撮影機材はDVカメラですので、拡大編集となっている部分が多く、画質の面で問題がございます。 何とぞご了承下さい。
