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!

Polar Express Christmas 2011
My carpet layout has undergone several changes since my PE video last Christmas. Most notable is I now have an O-60 loop inside an O-72 loop. There are a couple sidings with operating accessories. I show some of these in this video. I hope you all enjoy this. Lionel scale Polar Express PM 1225 and Polar Express Tender. Atlas RPO custom painted by Jeff Sohn. K-Line Operating Milk Car painted by me. Lionel scale Polar Express passenger coach and observation car. The observation car went through a heavy modification...done by me. I airbrushed all roofs with Floquil Graphite then used Doc O'Brien's weathering powder to simulate wind blown snow. Copy and paste the following to see a how-to on Winter weathering my passenger cars... http://www.ogaugehobbyist.com/wp/forum/forum-3rail/project-snow-on-my-polar -express-passenger-car-roofs/





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!

The Trains at Old Threshers: 2014
Catch all the railroad activity at the 2014 Midwest Old Threshers Reunion in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. We’ll visit the Midwest Central Railroad, running narrow-gauge steam trains, and the Midwest Electric Railway, operating trolleys circling the campgrounds. In this video, during four of the Reunion’s five days, we’ll take an in-depth look as the trains and trolleys pass several different spots around the grounds, and take multiple rides on each line. Although I've filmed at Old Threshers since 2005, this is my first full-length feature to be presented on YouTube. I hope you enjoy my look at this Mount Pleasant tradition, unlike anything else in the Midwest. And if you haven’t been yet, get to Old Threshers for the Reunion next year – you won’t regret it!

The SOO Line: A Compilation of the Dying Railroad [HD]
The Soo Line Railroad is the primary United States railroad subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway, controlled through the Soo Line Corporation, and one of seven U.S. Class I railroads. Although it is named for the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (MStP&SSM), which was commonly known as the Soo Line after the phonetic spelling of Sault, it was formed in 1961 by the consolidation of that company with two other CP subsidiaries, the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic Railroad and Wisconsin Central Railroad. It is also the successor to other Class I railroads, including the Minneapolis, Northfield and Southern Railway (acquired 1982) and Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (Milwaukee Road, acquired at bankruptcy in 1985). On the other hand, a large amount of mileage was spun off in 1987 to Wisconsin Central Ltd., now part of the Canadian National Railway. The Soo Line and the Delaware and Hudson Railway, the CP's other major subsidiary (before the 2008 DM&E acquisition), presently do business as the Canadian Pacific Railway. However, because of CP's rebuild program, most SOO Line equipment has been repainted to CP's scheme. This video compilation was created to show the variety of SOO Line locomotives which have become a dying breed. [Watch in HD for the best viewing experience]. LRF Video Productions.
