NTS&B Polar Express, Hogwarts, and other engines making up 15 Feet long trains on Heli

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

When building a layout, we sometimes forget to just stop and run trains on it. I finally decided to take the time to see what would run on the helix. I decided to stop at 12 passenger cars and a tender (or extra box car on diesels), because I didn’t want to pick them off the floor, or start loosing traction tires. In all the trains was over 15 feet long. The biggest surprises were the Lionel engines Polar Express, Hogwarts, and RI 5100, because these are all single motors. The MTHs RK PRR GG1, CSX Dash 8, PRR F3, and Williams Amtrak FP45 seemed to have plenty of power to spare for some more cars.

Acela Express trains are the only true high-speed trainsets in the United States. This has made the trains very popular, and by some reckoning, Amtrak has captured over half of the market share of travelers between Washington and New York. Outside of stations, Acela runs at speeds between 75 mph (120 km/h) and 150 mph (241 km/h), depending on track conditions.

Question by Anteater400: On the Lionel Polar Express G Gauge train set ;need to know where the battery compartment is located .?
I bought this set at Target over a year ago; there are 6 or 8 phillips screws under the engine, but I don’t see any directions as to how to fit the C batteries in. Seems strange to have to open up all those screws each time you want to change batteries. Would appreciate someone’s help.

Best answer:

Answer by MaryS
If you look on page 7 of the Owner’s Manual, there are instructions and diagrams explaining how to replace the batteries.

Polar Express Lionel Christmas train Platform 2008

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Well, I was forced to take down my platform in January 2008 so when I put it back up in December I made it a little bigger and used up less space. I think that is better then my original design too. Hope you like it!

The Acela Express Review (Part 2)

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

And, the rest of my look at the Acela set. I would definitely recommend getting this set if you can get it, purely on its beautiful detail, paint job, and smooth running. Even if modern trains aren’t usually your favourite, this could be the one for you… However, they are getting hard to find now. I searched for this one for the better part of a year. Then, as a nice partner train, you can get the Acela HHP-8 engine, and some Amfleet cars to go with it.
