Trackmaster Stafford Thomas The Tank Engine Train with Spencer & Henry

Thomas and Friends Stafford as seen in Episode 17 of Series 16. Tomy Takara Plarail compatible. Spencer shows Stafford around Sodor but does not heed Victor’s warning that Electric Engines can run out of battery power. ( Anybody who uses Trackmaster trains regularly will know Stafford’s problem!!!!) Stafford is being released as a Greatest Moments Train with 2 trucks. We’ve just bought him on his own. The 2 trucks shown in our video are not the 2 trucks to be supplied but they are the nearest we can find to the ones shown in marketing material.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

Henry Ford Museum – Lackawanna Commuter Train Model

Henry Ford Museum – Lackawanna Commuter Train Model

A model of the Lackawanna Railroad commuter train set, in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. These electric train sets were introduced in 1928, and were still in use in the 1950s and 1960s. This is how my father commuted to his work in New York City, and how I went to New York (including summer jobs in the city).

We took one of these trains (probably 6 or 8 cars) from Millburn, Maplewood, or Short Hills station to Hoboken. To reach New York City, you took the Hudson Tubes (later PATH – Port Authority Trans-Hudson). In the 1950s, there were also ferries from Hoboken to Lower Manhattan.
