Lionel Soo Line Train Set from Menards

Here's my latest acquisition to my O scale train fleet - Lionel's Soo Line freight train set made exclusively for Menards, a midwestern home improvement chain, during the 2010 Christmas season. This set is a WINNER! It has an RS3 locomotive, a flatcar with a Menards truck trailer, a Soo Line 4-bay coal hopper car, and a Soo Line boxcar with a flashing E-O-T device on one end, which I thought was a nice touch. The RS3 locomotive featurs a nice horn which is an actual diesel horn recording, rather than the shrill, tone-like horns on older engines that I was expecting on this one. I was pleasantly surprised! The set came with a small oval of FasTrack as well as a "PowerMax" transformer (which as far as I can tell is like a CW-80 except it is only 40 watts and doesn't have an extra port for accessories), and a Menards billboard with two different advertisements. The set costs $300 but I paid $230 since the set is on sale until December 5th. I think this could be the best "Menards exclusive" train sets Lionel has made to date. It's not SUPER high quality or anything (the RS3 has only one motor, plastic frame and plastic handrails, for instance) but for what it is it's perfect. I love it!

Amtrak's "Ocean View" dome car on the Illinois Zephyr, November 2013
In November 2013, Amtrak ran its only dome car, "Ocean View", on the short-haul Illinois Zephyr train between Quincy and Chicago. On November 9th I rode the train its entire distance, taking video all the way, out the front of the dome. In this program you'll experience the trip from this unique vantage point, as we depart Quincy at sunrise, race across the Illinois countryside, meet several opposing trains, and make our way into Chicago on the famed "Racetrack" mainline. I'm sure you'll agree that THIS is the way a passenger train should be.

My O Scale Train Layout, April 2012
It's been a little while since I've posted a video of my O scale train layout, so here it is! In this video I give a tour of the layout and talk about all of the new things I've done on it lately. I've also finally named the town on my layout - "Rolling Acres, Iowa". The name comes from a defunct shopping mall in Akron, Ohio that I've become interested in lately, and it seems to be a perfect name for a midwestern town!

Two CP trains meet in Blakesburg, IA, plus grain train - 7/25/13
Along the DM&E, "Blakesburg Meet and Southbound Grain." On July 25th, 2013, I followed southbound CP mixed freight train #270 from outside Ottumwa, Iowa to Blakesburg. In Blakesburg, the train took the siding to meet its counterpart, northbound train #271. In this video we'll see the meet at Blakesburg and watch as 271 continues out of town. Afterwards, I traveled back to Ottumwa, and then caught a southbound grain train as it departed. After watching it pass 215th Avenue, we'll see it again as it crosses one of the high trestles in Foster. About the series: “Along the DM&E” documents the operations of Canadian Pacific’s subsidiary, the Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad, through Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois. We follow along with many of the trains as they travel across these former Milwaukee Road lines, meeting opposing trains, and doing switching along the way. Much of the series is devoted to CP’s Ottumwa and Laredo subdivisions, and surrounding the crew change point in Ottumwa, Iowa – where many train chasing adventures begin.

The Royal Train set by Hornby (Part 1 of 3)
This set really is quite special, featuring the beautiful 'Princess Elizabeth' in LMS maroon livery, 2x MK3 royal saloons and a MK2 'support coach'. The only niggle I have is Hornby decided to put 2nd radius curves in the set, when 'Liz' is much happier with 3rd radius or higher. Thankfully she didn't have to run on any 2nd radius curves on this temporary layout.





Opening the Mixed Goods Train Set by Hornby
*Yes, I KNOW 9 is not a prime number - I blame the sun (too much of)* Now called the 'Mixed Freight' set, this train set is Hornby's defacto DCC beginner's set - featuring 2x DCC factory fitted locomotives, a small rake of rolling stock, some track and of course - a DCC controller. Whilst the overall quality of the set is far from premium, for someone wanting to enter the world of DCC, this set makes for a great stepping stone.

Central Iowa Railroad Club's HO trains at the 2014 Iowa State Fair
On August 8th, 2014, I attended the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines for the day. In the afternoon, I visited the Central Iowa Railroad Club's HO train layout and filmed some of the trains in operation at the time. The Central Iowa Railroad Club is located on the State Fairgrounds and is open during the fair with a $2 ticket charge. This is probably the largest, and most impressive, HO scale train layout I've ever seen. Many of the features of the layout are inspired by real Iowa landmarks, including a replica of the famous Kate Shelley High Bridge used by Union Pacific trains.

Amtrak California Zephyr departing Ottumwa, IA 7/31/14
On the evening of July 31st, 2014, I was downtown attending a presentation at the Wapello County Historical Museum's "railroad clubhouse", next to the train station. After the presentation, Amtrak's westbound California Zephyr pulled in, running about 30 minutes late. I had my iPod with me, so I shot a quick video of the train leaving. Locomotives: AMTK 172 (P42DC) AMTK 837 (P40DC) Also in the consist was one of only 2 named Superliner I sleeping cars, #32003 "Edward L Ullman"
