Music and Model Trains

Arnold D. Cribari ·
Music and model trains is a great combination. A few minutes ago, I was running trains on my layout listening to Willie Nelson's 16 Biggest Hits CD. Suddenly, I heard what I think is the greatest train song ever written. Any guesses what that song is? Here's a hint: it was written by a man named Goodman. I bet you still don't know what song it is. I won't torment you any more. In my opinion, the best train song ever written is: City of New Orleans! Great catchy tune and great, interesting...

Aero Train

Dan Padova ·
While at the TCA train meet, in Philly today, I saw a display set up in the lobby. One of the track ovals had an Aero Train running on it. Not sure if Lionel made it or MTH. In looks it's beautiful. However, on the oval of Fastback it kept derailing at the slightest bump. I said to one of the guys running it, It is about as successful as the real deal. I don't think he was amused.

MTH Railking Proto Sound 3 Santa Fe 4-6-0 Drawbar Disconnecting

Ricky S ·
Hello, I have a MTH Railking Proto Sound 3 Santa Fe 4-6-0 steam engine. When I run this engine, sometimes the wireless drawbar connecting the locomotive to the tender disconnects. When it does, the engine jerks, the sounds go out, and lights and smoke go on and off uncontrollably. I turn off the power and re attach it and it is good for another few minutes. Does anyone know if there is a way to make the drawbar connect more stable so it does not disconnect? If not, that's ok. Have a good...

Trains & Time Machine

Arnold D. Cribari ·
Trains have a rich history. This is evident from the various historical societies in which many Forum members (not me) participate, as mentioned in their profiles. Almost all of us love steam engines, diesels and railroads that no longer exist. Wouldn’t you love to go back in time in a time machine and experience these trains and railroads of yesteryear? We can take a stab at this on this post by using our imaginations. I shall begin.

Train Master Diesel

Dan Padova ·
I'm looking at several Lionel Train Masters. Some are post-war, some are MPC around 1979 and the rest are later productions made in the '80s or later. Post-war is desirable but sometimes a bit pricey. The MPC versions are simple and probably can be upgraded with a horn. The later models have different characteristics. Some have horns, electronic E-units. Most have mane-traction which is a must. Several examples are listed on the Bay that are remakes coming in the familiar orange box. These...

Train room shelf

I'm wanting to build a train shelf around the ceiling of a room. Like a layout that goes around the ceiling of a room. My question is what should the shelf be made of, solid wood (pine or popular wood) or MDF composite. My concern is the weight of the train and which will be stronger. I have watched a few videos on YouTube, but hope others have done the same and have advice or suggestions. The picture is just something I found online to give a idea. Thank you.
