Smoky Mountain Trains Museum

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

An in depth look at the extensive collection on hand at the Smoky Mountain Trains Museum in Bryson City, NC. I start you off with 10 minutes of the big model with operational trains and particular detail to the environment. Marvel at the intricate scenes and global vastness of the model. This is followed by another 20 minutes of museum tour that I felt was actually rushed as I tried to capture all of the display pieces. For the collectors, curious and anyone that loves trains – I hope you enjoy. The collection in total is over 7000 pieces but only about half of that is actually within the museum – the rest is in storage. I don’t say that in a negative way; it’s actually quite amazing that the massive collection you can browse is still just half of the grand total. Look out for the Hogwarts Express and the Polar Express in the gift shop. ; ) Created with the YouTube Video Editor

Mountain Railroading in HO Scale

Friday, April 6th, 2012

The basement of the Zamostny residence has always been thriving with model trains, and although scales have changed throughout the years, the creations have never ceased to amuse and amaze visitors and family, as well as the creators; my father and I. Nowadays, we have an HO Scale layout taking up our basement quarters, with a double-track mainline running up and down the mountain grades, rock cuts and foothill industries, as well as a single-track mainline running around the perimeter of the room, passing through tunnels and winding its way alongside the gradients. To give you a more mountainous and rugged feel for the layout, some more extreme angles were put into use to exploit the true power and beauty of the mainline run. With UP being a theme for this video, you’ll follow a heavy manifest led by an SP C44-9W and an SP SD40T-2 and a swift intermodal with a UP AC44CCTE and a pair of CNW C44-9W’s up and down the mountain grades, battling the uphill drag and working to stay in control while descending the gradients. Enjoy the action!

Mountain lion figure for model train?

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Question by lemonsandlimes: Mountain lion figure for model train?
I have a friend that is working on a model railroad set. I want to get him a mountain lion (cougar) figure. Where can I order one?

Best answer:

Answer by Old Man Dirt
Go to the Walthers site ( and find the one for his scale. You might have to buy a set of animals (like for a circus or zoo). But if there is one in his scale, more then likely Walthers will have it. Then find a local dealer to go through to order it. There are some one line places like caboose hobbies ( that can also order it for you and ship by mail.
