Here Comes The Train (Lomokino Test) – #13

1/13/12 365 Challenge, I am very excited about this Christmas gifts. Just got back the first 3 test rolls, one was blank, one a few images and this last (the one I took first) was filled to the brim with images. This is the crappy Target scan. Normally, I would scan myself but I was too excited to look at the results. This is Lionel train (circa 1990) going around the Christmas tree.

Lionel model railroad- Anything wrong here? history, science, transportation.?

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Question by Huh?: Lionel model railroad- Anything wrong here? history, science, transportation.?
Look at this Lionel item, and tell me if there is anything obviously and critically wrong with it.

Also, what might the welders be working on?

I’ll post my reasons after a few responses.

BTW. I’m asking in this category because there is no decent category for model railroading, and readers here seem to have good general knowledge.
BriaR has given all good answers, the way I saw it. However, I went back and enlarged the image twice size, and noticed that there is some liquid pouring from the top. Evidently the coal just happened to be there. I also see two welding gas tanks. I wonder if they are disconnecting the tank to make it easier to upright it, in two sections. Maybe this diorama isn’t as bad as I first thought. Thanks.

Answer by BriaR
Ha Ha Ha!! Good one!

1. Why are they carrying coal (or similar black granular solid) in a liquid tanker
2. The hazard triangles on the tanker plus the word “spirit” suggest a flammable liquid – so wtf is the guy doing with a welding torch?
3 If the force of the crash had been enough to rip of the top of the tank opening how come the tanker is undamaged
4 How did the coal manage to spill out in heaps higher than the outlet (assuming it could flow out at all
5 Why is the welder’s gas bottle so far from him with the pipe trailing over the tanker – why would they hump it over the spill?
6 Only 1 gas bottle – should be 2 one for the acetylene, one for the oxygen

Do I get a prize?

Need some help with my model railroad here.?

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Question by the_movies_mongul: Need some help with my model railroad here.?
I want to find a good, inexpensive, yet still reliable, model railroad design. I have 2 sheets of 4×8 plywood, I believe, I haven’t measured the other piece of plywood yet. I also have like, at least a hundred or more pieces of track to work with. It NEEDS to be DC. There’s also 2 pieces of foam I have. I want to use both sheets of plywood. I will take any design that’ll fit into a medium-sized room. I also have 6 engines, 15 or so freight cars, 5 passenger cars, and some assorted scenery along with buildings. Thanks to those who may be reading this, and possibly, answering because this is THE longest question I have asked.
Just measured the other sheet of plywood. it’s like, 10×14, I belive. I’m hoping to make a little yard for my layout, been experimenting with different combos, VERY hard to find the right one. Thanks for reading my queestion again.
Another thing, I’m modeling in HO scale.

The layout tours this month were both to outdoor large scale layouts. This layout had a bunch of new track and scenery installed since the last time I visited, including this nice big bridge. The young man in the photo was too busy following the train around the layout and looking around to notice anyone else, but here it looks like he didn’t even notice the train.
