What is this?

Paul Moore ·
A friend of mine sent me a picture of this train. Not sure of what scale it is. It is obviously tinplate. Sorry for the iphone pic, its all I've got. Who made it? When was it made? What is it worth? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Trains were made for little boys

Rayin"S" ·
We had friends of the family visit last week and three of the boys got a chance to run some trains using the Legacy system along with the Flyer Chief. These boys are all ten yrs and under and adapted quite well to the wireless system of operation. There were a few mishaps but with no or very minor damage. One wreck looked pretty prototypical and I wish I had thought to take a shot of it. I would have liked to catch one of the wrecks happening but I had my hands full. Seeing the fun they were...

Garrett's 2016 Christmas village and train layout

Garrett76 ·
It's a start. Going with a traditional oval layout unlike previous years "behind-the-tree" format. It's 4x8 modular benchwork on a folding table. Have to keep it up off the floor lest the dog reenact a scene from Godzilla. I hope to incorporate several button activated operating accessories to make the layout interactive for family and guests. More to come.

"New To Me" Thomas & Friends Show on PBS Kids

Mark Boyce ·
I have no idea if this topic belongs here, but I didn't see any better place to put it in my opinion. Admins, please move it if you see fit. I am normally not around the house on weekdays, but was cut back to 3 days a week earlier this month, so I am here. Right before I got some lunch, I was using the exercise bike and turned on the television. I flipped onto PBS Kids, and saw Thomas the Tank. Of course, since our daughters are in their mid 20s, I have not seen daytime children's shows for...

Frank Ellison's Delta Lines new site

Carey Williams ·
Hello Delta Line fans ... unfortunately many of Delta lines buildings have been lost in time. Fortunately we have Frank Ellison's great articles with wonderful photographs to piece together the once great Delta Lines layout. 4 of the buildings remain from Donaldson. I'm trying to recreate Donaldson ..here is a very preliminary rough placing of 3 of the buildings on the new "Donaldson" . In time hope to fill out the rest of the gaps ...working on Donaldson left of the street crossing.

Auction Houses For Model Trains

Dennis GS-4 N & W No. 611 ·
My son was discussing train auctions with me for a relative's train collection. I'm sure that I failed the above "SEARCH" test, but is there a somewhat comprehensive listing and/or review of Auction Houses for Model Trains that I could share with him? I did find this older Post by Rich Melvin to be helpful: https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/topic/trainz-2 Any reference to a Forum thread, or magazine article would also be very helpful. In this regard, I am aware of the ads run by Trainz, and,...

Running MTH DCS app on my & friends phone, iPad, etc.

darlander ·
I have the premium MTH DCS app on my iPad. My devices are linked (iPad & Phone). Does that mean the DCS app on my phone is also premium? No problem running trains with my iPad but my phone does not show any active or inactive trains. My iPhone does respond and connects to the MTH wifi but when I try to use it, it gives message: NO DCS Explores Found, Make sure your DCS Explorer is on. What do I need to do? Help! Thanks, Dave

Great video. No need to apologize for video quality. You got the looks on the boys faces, that makes it great. Tstark . This beats the grumpy vendor and customer post.

Video was fine. Nice to see the kids enjoying the trains. They looked like they were getting into it and also being pretty careful as well. Looks like they were really concentrating on their trains and what they were doing. I get more enjoyment out of watching the kids than I do running the trains myself. I think many others have the same feelings. As for wrecks, every time I have had kids over here it was not the kids that wrecked the trains, it is always me when trying to show them...

Helmut, Our visitors included one younger boy age four and a girl age three, these two were also anxious to see the trains but, I must be honest, when my wife brought the doll buggy out Abby lost interest in the trains. Abby does visit at the Mad City train show and is always excited to see the layouts and ride the kiddy train. Ray

Ray, yeah, my daughter might grow out of the train thing but for now it is to my advantage! she also loves animals, cars and planes. but she is only two and starting to discover the world so who knows where her interests will go later. BTW she does have a purse and likes to go shopping with Mommy too! Helmut

Reminds me of my daughter on Monday when we (myself, my wife and daughter) went to the Walter Anderson nursery a block away from work to look at the G Scale trains on (running) display. The idea was to see their real size and if we liked them. As soon as she saw the trains running she screamed "CHOO-CHOO" and was pointing and trembling with excitement! Now I have to set up a layout, no choice. But I gotta say, not just for little boys! She might grow out of it later (she just turned 2), but...

Angela, As always, great artwork. Several years ago, your work was on display at the Lizza studios in Tunkhannock Pa. I took my son and his aspiring artist friend to spend some time admiring your work. The aspiring artist is now 22 years old, and quite accomplished. He drew a rendering of the Huber Breaker in Ashley Pa which was used on a monument for the Ashley historic preservation Society, honoring those who worked in the mines. I'm sure your work was an inspiration to him.To keep this...

Here's a little thing about Thomas in recent years. After Hit Entertainment (the same company that owns Bob the Builder) bought the franchise off the original creators of the TV series - Britt Allcroft and David Mitton - in 2003, Thomas became a rather mundane and generic baby show where morals were shoved down the kids throats. It got more and more apparent well after the show went full CGI in 2009. It wasn't until 2013 when Mattel bought the majority of the franchise and Thomas started to...

Thomas, Thank you for the scoop! I was not aware of any of that until now! I'm just glad to see Thomas on Television for the next generation to come to know. I don't know what the previous animation was like, but I will say I like the current animation a lot!

I always like the original show with the real models back in the day when my kids were small. Admired the modeling done on the layout, too. Here's a youtube vid someone made, apparently shows the original models and set used in the TV show.

I have a very good friend even though he's into HO whose wife is a special ed teacher and child psychologist. She made an interesting remark on the the way to the show up in Lynden Washington a couple Octobers ago. What she said is that a fascination with Thomas was one of the indicators of psychological problems in teenagers. It is not a test for preteens nor for adults which make Phil and I feel better being adults reliving our preteen years. Our teen years come out in our fascination for...

Agreed. It may just be nostalgia but I prefer the classic series with models over CGI
