Lionel Corp. Standard Gauge Blue Comet with #400E Steam Locomotive and 5 Cars in True HD 1080p

This video shows my most recent acquisition — the Lionel Corp. (manufactured by MTH) Standard Gauge Blue Comet set. It features the #400E steam locomotive (yes, I know, owning two #400E’s is going overboard but what can I say) and five passenger cars. The baggage car was never included with the original set from the 1930’s but they did a good job of maintaining the look and feel of the original set. In appearance, the set is a dead ringer for the orignal set from 80 years ago. Operationally, well … it’s equipped with the full Protosound 2 control and sound package. I’m running it from my DCS remote and the sounds you can hear for yourself. In this True HD 1080p video, you can see it on my around-the-ceiling layout in a slow speed runby, a faster runby, and in the last segment, I provide a sample of the great Blue Comet passenger station sounds that come with this set. Please visit my web site — www.toytrains1.com — for lots more video and photos of both real and model trains.
