Kato Renfe AVE Series 100 N Scale (Escala N) Train Pack Review

Monday, January 21st, 2013

This is the first of my model train review videos to be released in High Definition using my new JVC GZ-HD500SEK Video Camcorder and you should be able to see the details better on the train pack without blur or distortion. The train pack in the review is the Kato Renfe AVE Series 100 in the new “Operadora” livery which looks nice on this model in particular. The livery was intoduced around 2008 and I bought this model in 2009 as there is a few videos of this train actually running on my layout in some older non-HD videos. The motor car is all wheel drive with drive to both trucks on the power car and there also directional lights on both the power car as well as the non powered car. You can use this train pack on DCC as Kato make the “slot in” DCC decoders that are availible seperately. The detailing is superb on this model and the carriages have interiors as well as there is an option for a interior lighting LED kit availible seperately. The motor is quiet and the whole train runs very well. I would certainly recommend this train that any N gauge modeller that models high speed trains. The Renfe AVE Series 100 is a Spanish version of the French TGV Reseau although these trains are more streamlined than the TGV as the front on the TGV is more rigid. AVE means “Alta Velocidad Espanol” (or High Speed Train of Spain in English!). Overall Rating: 10/10

My O scale trains’ “Thanksgiving Rush” 2010

Friday, November 30th, 2012

The night before Thanksgiving I usually operate special trains on my O scale layout for the Thanksgiving holiday, to simulate the heavy passenger load on the railroads during this time. I call it the “Thanksgiving Rush” and things can get interesting! To keep up with the high passenger demand, I add passenger equipment to virtually every train, making mixed consists of freight and passenger cars. This is the only day out of the entire year I do this. This video features all of my Thanksgiving Rush trains. The first two are normal trains – a Standard O freight led by my Lionel Norfolk Southern SD80MAC, and a 4-car Amtrak train powered by my MTH Genesis. Next off are two mixed trains – one powered by my Chicago & North Western Budd RDC by Ready Made Trains, and the other a mammoth consist of Amtrak passenger cars and O27 freight cars pulled by my Lionel BNSF SD70ACe. The last two trains are the Polar Express and a mixed train with my Norfolk Southern SD80MAC. Before these trains are assembled, you’ll get to see my Polar Express Berkshire showing off its pulling power, pulling the Amtrak-freight consist off of the layout. After the action is over, my NS SD80MAC pushes the cars of the “Nutcracker Express” into place and parks in the train yard. The holidays are here, everyone! Have a happy Thanksgiving!
