A tribute to my favorite train, ICE(Intercity Express)

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

ICE 3 is a family of high-speed EMUs of Deutsche Bahn. It includes classes 403 and 406, which are known as ICE 3 and ICE 3M respectively. Four multisystem trains, known as ICE International, are owned by Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch Railways). Loosely based on the ICE 3, Siemens developed its Siemens Velaro after the completion of the ICE 3 project.

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.

Graham Farish Class 90 Review (90022) N Gauge

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

This is a review of a Graham Farish Class 90 Electric Locomotive in the Railfreight Distribution Triple Grey livery that is numbered as 90022 in N gauge. The model is one of the former British Made models that used to be made in Poole, Dorset before Bachmann took them over in 2001. The motor needs more power and is more noisy than my newer Graham Farish models that are Made in China nowadays. But its still a great model and to me it looks better than the Bachmann Farish examples as the driver’s cab windows look more correct on this one. I am planning to get a RES parcels ones and an Intercity one of these as well. Though I would like one in the new Freightliner livery as that looks cool. Overall Rating: 8/10

Use Styrofoam. It’s light, you can carve it with a bread knife, and takes latex paint well. Go to any insulation supplier and ask if they have any broken sections. They can’t sell them so they’re just waste.. I use them for my train layouts.
