R1097 East Coast Pullman Digital Train Set

The ultimate in train sets! A LNER B/12 Class locomotive, 3 Pullman coaches, a J52 Class locomotive plus wagons, add in the Hornby Digital Select Control and you have more than a set, you have the makings of a really impressive model railway layout! The track configuration will allow the operator, using the Select digital unit the ability to have the Pullman train running around the looped circuit while the 0-6-0 J52 locomotive can be busy shunting the wagons around either of the two sidings. Of course there can also be interaction between the two trains with the locomotives double heading and pulling all the Pullman Cars and wagons in one long train.

Trains and Rails – A West Coast Experience – Cheddington to Tamworth

The West Coast mainline has for years always attracted railway enthusiasts to its stations and line side locations. With its 401 mile route from London’s Euston Terminal Station to Glasgow Central in Scotland all manner of freight and passenger traffic can be seen and photographed on this ever changing premiere line to the North. Filmed over a three year period from 2000 to 2003, we visit no less than 9 locations – all are displayed with details. In 2003 we see Virgin’s newly introduced Class 390 Pendolino 390014 (City of Manchester) working a minimal Manchester Piccadilly to Euston service together with the celebrated Class 86 and 87 and not forgetting the venerable Class 43 or better known HST125s – as usual Virgin Trains put on a sterling show. Also in this program we take an extensive look at the freight scene which has always been the life blood of our railways, classes of freight locomotives, both electric and diesel motive power can be seen on this line – they include 37,47,57,66, 86, 90 and 92.

Lionel Coast Guard & Alton Limited Pacific train sets

2 more sets from my “O” Gauge train collection. No fancy video editing, just HD video direct from my iPhone 4. I hope you enjoy it. Lionel Coast Guard Set (Appr. 1996) Set # 6-11905. Yellow Lifeguard boat (Lionel # 6-16970) and model Coast Guard helicopter were purchased separately. I mounted the helicopter on the original crane car that came with the set. Lionel Alton Limited Pacific w RailSounds. # 6-38657 Lionel Alton Limited Madison Passenger Car Set. # 6-35124 Quick Train Tip: Keep your track clean and dust-free for best performance. Be sure to buy a good track cleaning product from your local hobby shop. A small vacuum cleaner works great for picking up loose dust that has settled on the track.
