Here’s a video of Lionel and MTH Electric Trains Union Pacific Heritage SD70ACe’s in action around the Christmas Tree. The Union Pacific painted one locomotive in a special paint scheme for six of the railroads they bought over the years. There was a locomotive painted for the Missouri Pacific, Western Pacific, Missouri Kansas Texas, or often called the Katy, Rio Grande, Chicago and North Western, and the Southern Pacific. Both Lionel and MTH Electric Trains made models of each locomotive. Both companies, in my opinion, did an excellent job making these locomotives. Starting on the outside track are Katy and Missouri Pacific locomotives made by Lionel pulling a double stack train. The second track in has Southern Pacific and Chicago and North Western locomotives made by Lionel pulling a mixed freight. The third track has Rio Grande and Western Pacific locomotives made by MTH Electric Trains pulling a hopper train and on the inside track there is a Union Pacific locomotive made by MTH Electric Trains pulling a train of pulpwood and lumber cars. The rolling stock is made by Atlas O, Lionel, MTH, and Weaver Models. The trolley is made by Industrial Rail and has been serving this city since 2001. In this video you will see almost all of the village I set up under the Christmas Tree. What started with a gas station and school has grown into a small city over the years. The buildings are made by AmeriTown, City Seen, Department 56, K-Line, Lionel, MTH Electric Trains, Model … Video Rating: 5 / 5
Question by water_skipper: Would it be a good idea to power electric trains the way the Finding Nemo ride is?
Would it be a good idea to power electric trains the way the Finding Nemo ride is? Instead of having unsightly and unreliable overhead powerlines (catenaries) and instead of having a dangerous their rail, couldn’t an electric train receive the electricity wirelessly from something hidden between the tracks out of sight and out of reach? It seems to me that if electric trains are going to be built in cities at ground level an alternative would be used by now.
Answer by billrussell42 Any induction method like that wastes a lot of power, and the longer it is, the more power it wastes. That’s ok for an amusement park, but not for a 1000 mile length of track.
