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.

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/

Truck drives around gates in front of Amtrak - Ottumwa, IA 12/27/14
Here's some video I shot of Amtrak's California Zephyr arriving in downtown Ottumwa, Iowa, on December 27th, 2014. I went down to the station to see the train because I heard that another new ACS-64 electric unit was on it, being delivered from Siemens in Sacramento, CA to Washington, DC for use on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. In this video, I'm standing on the west edge of the platform at the Ottumwa station as the train approaches. As an added "bonus", we get to see somebody in a green pickup truck stupidly driving around the gates right in front of the train, which hits the crossing only 20 seconds later.

SOO LINE SPECIAL LIONEL TRAIN SET UNBOXING





Amtrak Baggage Car 1750 on California Zephyr, Ottumwa, IA 1/11/15
Well folks, I'm afraid the end is near for Amtrak's heritage fleet baggage cars. Starting as early as tomorrow (1/12/15), Amtrak will be downsizing its western long-distance trains for the winter. This includes the elimination of baggage cars on the California Zephyr and Southwest Chief, as well as a reduction in coaches and sleepers, making these trains only 6 cars long. It's possible the trains will operate with a single locomotive as well. While normal passenger consists should resume by March, the baggage cars, some dated well into their 60's, probably won't return, as Amtrak has new Viewliner baggage cars that are about ready to enter service. It'll be neat to see the new equipment, and observe the 'baby' Zephyr and Chief over the next couple months, but I have to say I'll miss the old cars. So tonight, I went down to the station in Ottumwa, Iowa and filmed the Zephyr departing. Behind the engines we see baggage car #1750, originally owned by Santa Fe, and is one of many "1700-series" cars Amtrak converted from heritage fleet coaches. Southeast Iowa received a brief, heavy snowfall this afternoon, and as you can see the train is spattered with wet spots of snow on the sides of the cars. Copyright © 2015 by Bobby Harvey.
