Florida Central/Florida Northern/Florida Midland Railroad Questions?

FECguy ·
In the time period since Pinsly created the Florida Central, Florida Northern, and Florida Midland have they been successful at retaining customers and growing rail traffic or have a lot of rail served industries left them?  I know they abandoned their Wildwood to Leesburg route in the mid 2000's, outside of a storage train every few years Mount Dora does not have any rail served industries, and it seems like they do not have any customers south of Newberry to the Crystal River power...

New video! MTH Premier N&W 611 Coal Train

TrainWizard5972 ·
Since I had all the coal cars out for 765 I figured I might as well give my MTH Premier Line model of Norfolk & Western 611 a chance to haul some coal. The Class J Northerns may have been passenger locomotives but it was not uncommon near the end of steam to see them hauling freights and helping the last Y’s and A’s on coal runs. Enjoy!

Pre Ordering from 2016 Flyer catalog

Roundhouse Bill ·
I just ordered the Frisco Northern.  I compared prices on it and cheapest was Nassau Hobbies at $399.00 and then Charles Ro is $419.99.   I decided on Ro because he doesn't charge a 10% deposit like Nassau.  The deposit at Nassau is 10% or $40.  I decided to pay $20 more and not let them have my $40 for "Who Knows for how long".  Could be years like the smoking caboose.

Sleeper dome question

pittsburghrailfan ·
Hello, I know that several railroads had or have domed sleeper cars. That meaning, cars with an upper level dome deck and sleeping accommodations down below. Did any railroad put sleeping accommodations actually on the dome deck? A sort of "Sleep under the stars" roomette or bedroom.

Single Headlight on 8679 Northern Pacific Diesel?

Stephen K ·
Has anyone ever added a second "headlight" to this engine? I find it odd that only one end is lit especially since the other end is already Lens equipped as well. It's a dual "can motor" driven style and it just seems an odd thing to cheap-out on by Lionel. Steve

S gauge Northern hunt this weekend

Francine ·
I've researched the cost of updating a Northern to DCC with sound. Motor $40, Tsunami sound, decoder and speaker $150 or a total of $190. The new FlyerChief Northerns are coming out in December for about $500. I will be looking at the Allentown Show, but if the price for the old stuff is too high, I'll just wait for the engine I have on order. If I do find one, the old updated engine would be converted to 2101 as the Freedom Train engine, while the Flyerchief would be converted to 2100...

Fellow Flyer Fans. I acquired a used Lionel Flyer UP Northern and when I got a chance to run it this evening it did not even make it through the first curve before wobbling wildly.

When will S Northerns appear?

Francine ·
I have been so satisfied with the Polar Berk, that I wanted a C & O Berk as well, but they sold out so quickly, I couldn't get one. I had a Northern that I was going to convert to DCC, but after running the Flyerchief Berk decided it was a waste of time, money and effort, as the Flyerchief will run on AC, DC and DCC. I love the flexibility. The word I have heard, so far, is that they are due this month, any updates?

Both performed excellently and were crowd and user pleasers. Flyer Chief is great because it runs on DCC (as well as AC,...
