HD: The Most Amazing Train Ever! 19G With Many Rare Locomotives!

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

When I got a message from a fellow railfan on a Yahoo group that 19G had 8 engines all of Conrail heritage… NS D8-40CW 8420 NS D8-40CW 8315 NS GP38-2 5329 NS GP38-2 5277 “CRQ” CSX GP15-1 1554 “CRQ” NS GP38-2 5312 NS SD45-2 1705 NS SD45-2 1703 …I fell on the floor, started twitching, blacked out, and woke up to an EMS with an AED. The first scene is 19G barrelling through Myerstown in good light at HP 79.9, there is a hotbox / dragging equipment detector here. Unfortunately, when I got up to Hershey to catch him working (that video will be up soon), the sun had disappeared, but nevertheless, I got to catch it again chugging up to speed. The date is April 2, 2009, in the afternoon. RARITIES: CSX 1554 one of only 2 GP15-1’s in Conrail paint, NS 1705 and 1703, 2 of only 6 SD45-2’s on the system. Plus the fact that 8 exConrail units got lashed together!

HD: Struggling Notch-8 and Rare Locomotive Chases

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Incredible catches and chases, as well as Notch 8 throttle, is what railfanning is all about! I selected 3 trains from this Spring that I think depicted this well, on May 22, 2010, train 19G (Oak Island, NJ – Conway, PA) transports 3 Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) GP40MC’s to the JBS shops in Altoona for a rebuild and repaint. This train was chased starting on the Reading Line at Blandon, pulling into the Reading Yard before its work, and later on the Harrisburg Line with a much shorter train. Power for 19G is: NS D9-40CW 9608 NS D9-40CW 9094 MBTA GP40MC 1130 MBTA GP40MC 1136 MBTA GP40MC 1132 On May 29, 2010, train 290 has a very rare leader for NS in PA, a tri-clops SD60M! 290 is a rare train by itself, being an overflow train for 212’s auto racks. This is the only one that has ran in 3 years. We chase this train from the Harrisburg Line to the Reading Line, meeting 21M along the way, and getting a Notch-8 show on the “Low Grade”. Power for 290 is: UP SD60M 2368 NS D9-40CW 8918 On May 31, 2010, H2W makes a rare daylight run with even more rare power. The train was very long and VERY underpowered. H2W was in Notch-8 and struggling to maintain 25 MPH up the Buffalo Line. It then took the siding at Boyles to let the OCS past, which has been stuck behind this train. However, we were more interested in chasing this epic H2W than the OCS, and we made out a great chase. Sorry the pacing shot didn’t turn out better, it was hard trying to film and drive 30 MPH

HiDef: Spring Brings the Circus Train, Rare and Nice Lashups to the NS Harrisburg Line

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Warbonnets, Conrails, Ringling Brothers, foreign power, all admist the usual Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern trains of the NS Harrisburg Line. You’ll see a lot in this spring sampler, and just a note, this video like many others I have uploaded, will all eventually be available on DVD. This is why I don’t show full clips of trains, not to mention I am pressed for file-size time, but I like to keep you all entertained so I hope you enjoy what I do put up. (For more details: read more below the power list). 3-20-10 The first day of spring and 19G shows off its many units in the afternoon sun. NS SD70M-2 2690 NS SD60 6584 NS D9-40CW 9335 NS D9-40CW 9390 NS D8-40CW 8382 UP SD70M 4404 3-21-10 Eastbound loaded automotive racks 18N in some nice sun, but the trees are still bare. NS SD70 2561 NS D9-40CW 9904 3-22-10 Ethanol loads 68Q in some spring rain with a relatively rare CSX locomotive trailing. NS D9-40CW 9660 UP AC4400CW 6620 CSX SD60 8712 3-22-10 A lashup of all ex-Conrails on 19G, misfortune would have it that the leader is black, when in fact it is rarer to see a black SD50 than a blue one, but still a nice trio of power for 2010. NS SD50 5429 NS SD60I 6758 Conrail Quality NS GP38-2 5281 Conrail Quality 3-27-10 A pair of standard cabs on 14G; this is an increasingly rarer site in the new decade. NS SD70 2563 NS SD60 6628 3-27-10 That afternoon, 19G meets 33A, both of which have nice power. All units are running on 19G and units 1, 2, and 4 are running on 33A

How much and where can i sell this RARE lionel train?

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Question by Seneca P: How much and where can i sell this RARE lionel train?
i have a 1 of a kind Lionel coal dumping car. It was given to me by a friend of someone who worked at Lionel. He developed a coal car that remotely dumps coal out of the car, but Lionel scrapped the idea even after he finished it. It fully works. All you do is hit a command on the remote control, and it automatically dumps the coal out of the car. Lionel has never had it like that before.

I also have an engine that im not sure of what it is. I do know that only 3 were ever created. They were created to train new employees on how it works. The train has an AC motor. It is fully functional.

So do you know anyone interested in purchasing extremely rare Lionel trains? Does anyone know exactly what the clear cab train is for?
from what i have seen, i have not seen coal dumping cars that work with the remote control. ALSO the clear cab train is not the motor type used now, and i have pictures to back it up if your interested in them.

Best answer:

Answer by Ben H
Lionel made, and still makes, a whole bunch of coal dump cars that work in exactly the manner you describe.

There were also clear cab models of the F-3 produced. The originals were fairly rare, however they have recently been reproduced by both Lionel and MTH.

If the items you describe truly are factory prototypes, though, they’ll be hard to sell unless you have documentation stating as such.

At the very least, you need to let the standards committee of the Train Collectors Association have a look at them to ascertain their provenance. Not doing so would likely detract serious collectors(the sort who would likely be interested in this item) as well as lower the potential value.

EDIT:

Yes, I would definitely like to see pictures.

Lionel has kept their classic Pullmor type motor in production, and the reproductions clear shell F3s made a few years ago used the same type of motor as most of the Postwar F3s.

In any case, though, please do definitely post pictures.

Give your answer to this question below!
