Realistic crossing makes way for heavy NS Intermodal @ Springfield show (Southern New England)

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Crossing signals by Custom Signals, This video shows the full sequence of the very realistic operating railroad crossing on the Southern New England model railroad, a group from Gardner, Mass., as it makes way for a high-priority Norfolk Southern Intermodal train. The train consists of a four-unit lashup of NS diesels with Dash 8-40C 8670 on the point, and a lengthy double-stack intermodal, as it passes over the fully-detailed and fully-operating grade crossing. The double-stack train, like the layout, looks fantastic. The crossing signals feature working gates, lights, and bells. They are also the most realistic-looking signals I’ve seen. This layout also includes operating track signals along the right-of-way. This modular layout is O-scale (2-rail modeling), or 1:48th scale. Recorded at the 2011 Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, MA.

Owosso – December 19 – 1225 Steam Engine Train – Westown Crossing

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

This video was taken at dusk on December 19, 2008, in the Westown area of Owosso, Michigan. You are looking southeast and downtown Owosso, Michigan, begins about a half mile farther east. As the railroad crossing signals turn on, the Steam Railroading Institute’s famous Pere Marquette 1225 steam engine locomotive is finishing a rather sharp turn to the northwest. The 1225 very slowly picks up speed as it crosses West Main Street in Owosso and enters what were freight yards of the New York Central Railroad. From there, the 1225 will continue on mostly straight track for a few miles until it turns to the northeast and Chesaning, Michigan. The 800000 pound (including tender) Pere Marquette 1225 is the largest operating steam engine locomotive in Michigan. Steven Spielberg’s production company filmed the sights and sounds of the 1225 for the computer rendering of the movie, “Polar Express,” and Lionel Model Trains has also recorded the sounds of the 1225 for its new electric toy model train, “The 1225” ― the namesake of Owosso’s 1225. One of Owosso, Michigan’s many great assets is the Steam Railroading Institute, which includes a museum and other facilities. The institute’s 3.5 acre grounds also hold a roundhouse, the 800000 pound Pere Marquette 1225 steam locomotive and tender, the 82000 pound Flagg Coal Company steam switch engine, the 136000 pound Mississippian steam locomotive (under restoration), plus many train cars and other rolling stock from railroads in the United

Train crossing the viaduct

Every now and then, a train would take its passengers over the Ribblehead Viaduct. Some looking customers on a Virgin Pendelino would have been getting an unexpected but very pleasant detour this afternoon. Pendolinos are of course electric trains – you can just make out the diesel engine at the front which is hauling it along the unelectrified train line.

Does anyone know where I can find crossing signal gift items?

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

Question by RexD: Does anyone know where I can find crossing signal gift items?
I have searched countless times here online and all I find is items for model railroading, actual old signals that would not fit in my yard, and toys for kids. Know where I can find novelty items based on crossing signals? e.g. clocks, lamps, telephones, pictures etc.

Best answer:

Answer by Rango
I would search e-bay, lots of old stuff turn up there almost every day, I have bough some cool memorabilia there.
Be persistent, enter the name of specific RR’s, and try RR items for search criteria.
