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!

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!





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.

Late California Zephyr Arrives in Ottumwa, IA, 4/14/15
On the morning of April 14th, 2015, I filmed Amtrak's eastbound California Zephyr as it pulls into Ottumwa, Iowa. The train was running a little over 2 hours late today. BNSF has the train running on Main 1 into the station, which was, at one time, pretty unusual to see for eastbounds. BNSF's Ottumwa Subdivision through here is governed by track warrant control (TWC) with bi-directional automatic block signals (ABS), although crossovers aren't signaled. Typically, eastbounds run on main 2 and westbounds on main 1. A few years ago BNSF built some CTC "islands" - signaled crossovers - that allow dispatchers to run Amtrak "against the current" of traffic for a little ways, but not far enough to cause freight trains to wait long periods. This allows Amtrak to overtake trains going the same direction which reduces potential for delays. Today's Zephyr got a track warrant to run on Main 1 between the IC&E RRX (west of the Ottumwa station, beginning of TWC ABS) to Control Point (CP) 2502. Here the train crosses back over to Main 2, and gets a second warrant from there to Lucas Street, the beginning of CTC territory in Burlington. Behind the locomotives is one of Amtrak's heritage baggage cars, AMTK 1232. This is former Santa Fe baggage car #3546, built by the Budd Company in 1957. Becoming Amtrak #1060, it was upgraded to head-end power specs in 1978, and received its current number. Unfortunately, this is one of the many Heritage Fleet baggage cars that will soon be replaced by new "Viewliner II" equipment, which is gradually going into service now.

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!
