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!

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.

Lionel SD80MAC on my Christmas layout
Here's some video I shot of my O scale train layout around the Christmas tree in 2008. Running on the layout is my Lionel LionMaster SD80MAC in Norfolk Southern livery, #7203. The loco features Lionel RailSounds and TrainMaster Command Control. The consist features both Lionel and MTH scale freight cars, five of which were included with the locomotive in Lionel's "Black Diamond Freight" set of 2005.





Joe's South Jersey Line O Guage Lionel Rail Transport Model Train Layout
Here is a LONG LOOK at Joe's South Jersey Line Lionel Train set up. The detail is great and the various stations, farms, lakes, mountains and more make this a first class model train layout. The Lionel Trains are part of this too. Many of the classic cars I had when I was young are seen here. If I only had that metal Locomotive that puffed smoke now! The sounds produced are authentic. When you start up the Diesel Locomotives you can hear the engines knock at idle. The steam Engines chug along with matched sound too! The set up is computer controlled and you use a handheld wireless device to control everything. The roadways, active crossings, hills, tunnels, bridges, towns, farms, lakes, trees and the many scenarios are designed extremely well. Joe has designed and built the farm and may other other models that you see. Steven Hunn has a hand in it too. There is an abbreviated version of "Joe's South Jersey Line" so watch that if this is too long.. There was only 2 minor train wrecks with no apparent or hidden damage during the shoot. © abkvideo.com 2013 all rights reserved http://www.abkvideo.com http://www.sailboatvideo.com Thanks to Joe for building, maintaining and sharing his layout.

SOO LINE SPECIAL LIONEL TRAIN SET UNBOXING





Steam Trains Galore!
All aboard! Come along for a look at several steam trains running in the western United States! Steam Trains Galore is a 28 minute long video that features numerous shots of all sorts of different steam trains. You will see everything from small park trains to the big steam trains that make occasional runs on the main line today. This video is not narrated and there are no captions on any of the video clips, so if there are any questions about where some of these videos were filmed, I'd be happy to answer them. I'm trying to increase the variety of videos I have on my page, so this video is geared towards a different (younger) audience. This is to get a better sense as to what types of videos are the most popular. If this is well received, I will post more like it in the future. So, that said, please leave feedback. Thank you!





New ACS-64 #609 on Amtrak's California Zephyr, Ottumwa, IA 3/13/14
On March 13th, 2014, the eastbound Amtrak California Zephyr arrives in downtown Ottumwa, Iowa, with a new ACS-64 electric locomotive in tow. These engines are built in Sacramento, CA, and will be used on the electrified Northeast Corridor between Washington, DC and Boston. To get there, Amtrak delivers the engines on regular passenger trains, the California Zephyr (Emeryville, CA - Chicago, IL) and the Capitol Limited (Chicago, IL - Washington, DC). A few engines are already being run on the Corridor while the rest of the order is being built and delivered. Usually this train gets into Ottumwa at 9:09 AM, but mechanical problems with the dining car in California delayed the train more than 7 hours, before departing Emeryville in the evening two days earlier. By the time it reached here it was running about 8 1/2 hours late. This turned out to be good for me, since I would have been at work and missed the train otherwise.





MTH Lionel Corporation O Gauge Christmas Ready-to-Run Train Set
The Lionel catalog for 1936 introduced the new 249 as a "high speed powerful conventional locomotive with chrome plated trimmings and a wealth of embossed details." While less expensive, less elaborate and smaller than the 260E and its successor the 263, the 249 was nonetheless lauded in Lionel's catalog for its prototype accuracy. A picture looking forward from approximately the engineer's point of view noted that, "Looking alongside the new No. 249E gives the same picture a real engine would — with piping, air compressors, domes and drivers correctly proportioned, accurately detailed and brilliantly chromium plated." Sharing the same motor as its larger brethren, the 249 was cataloged until 1939 and was part of the last hurrah of tinplate. When the 249 disappeared from the line, the production of high-quality, sheet-metal trains had passed into history. Relive the colorful final days of tinplate — with the added excitement that a child in the 1930s could only dream about: synchronized puffing smoke, vibrant locomotive sounds, passenger station terminal announcements, and a "Box-Type" Proto-Coupler™ on the tender that can be remotely activated from the transformer. You'll find all this and more with a 249 locomotive passenger set featuring colorful 600 series passenger cars.
