Custom built O scale 36 foot Boxcar for Hi-rail 3-rail model railroad.

pro hobby ·
Custom built O scale 36 foot Boxcar for Hi-rail 3-rail model railroad. This is a 3-rail model of a 36 foot wooden boxcar having K-style brakegear and vertical handwheel. It is typical of early wooden boxcars that have been converted from truss rod underbody to a later style steel underframe. The model uses Lionel Bettendorf style sprung trucks. The boxcar is a freelance design.  Not all details have been added. No lettering has as yet been applied. Photos of similar prototype boxcars...

The New Lionel "Techonology Boxcars," a few questions

Nicks Trains ·
Dear all, I am considering purchasing a new Lionel sound and sensor boxcars, but I have a few questions. Concerning the sound car: 1. Can I control it from a cab 1/2? Or is it conventional only? The catalog states that it "operates on any conventional or command control layout," but is it really command controlled? 2. If it is command control, what makes the vision line boxcar any better than the sound boxcar? Concerning the sensor boxcar: 1. Would I be able to enter data into...

New Video! Repaired Lionel Legacy Nickel Plate Road 765

TrainWizard5972 ·
My Lionel Legacy NKP 765 smoke unit shorted out a few months ago. Two weeks ago I was able to free up some time to contact Lionel and get a replacement smoke unit motor and replaced it myself. I'm happy to say that my favorite locomotive is now running better than ever before. This is the first of a series of videos I plan to produce with the engine hauling various NKP trains over the under construction North Western Railroad. This first video features 765 with a string of boxcars. Enjoy!

WP Pullman Boxcar

Chris Allan ·
After attending one of Jack Burgess' clinics at O Scale West on 3D printed models, I decided to try my hand at a Western Pacific boxcar built by Pullman in 1916. I will use the prints from Shapeways.com as a pattern and pour it in Urethane. These are the same cars that served the railroad for many years as outfit cars, stock cars, and of course cabooses. The side braces are Zee sections, so the addition of a piece of styrene angle will complete those on the finished model. Those would be...

Atlas 6505-2 Evans Double Plug Door Boxcar

Atlas 6505-2 Evans Double Plug Door Boxcar This Atlas O scale model is a very detailed scale model of an Evans 53 foot double plug door boxcar. It is painted green with lettering representing early Tropicana boxcars. Although I could not locate photos of a prototype for this particular car the green paint scheme is likely based on a very early prototype railcar.

NEW VIDEO! Lionel NKP C-420 & GP-9 Lash-Up

It has been far to long since I posted a video of my layout. There just hasn't been enough time this summer but now that it is winding down I have more time. I pulled out the only two Lionel Legacy diesels on the roster and performed my first ever Legacy Lash-Up which was surprisingly easy to set up. I have to say that the smoke units are weak so I shut them off. An interesting thing to note is that the first two boxcars are the same but from different manufacturers. They are both NKP...

Is it possible to have an O gauge micro layout and run Lionel 86' boxcars?...YES!

pittsburghrailfan ·
There are a lot of designs on the web for micro layouts; many of them are in HO, N, and Z, and I'd say 3/4 of them are narrow gauge. If, however, you define a "micro" layout as any layout that is 4 square ft. or under in area, I have created a track plan using standard Ross Custom Switches pieces that allows you to run those 2 foot-long autoracks or really cool Lionel 86' auto parts boxcars in a micro layout's footprint. A few measurement things to note: I measured the layout's length and...

A suggestion for Menards

Mark the Menards Train Guy, I was wondering if you would be willing to take a suggestion for an addition to your lineup of boxcars. It would be really nice if you were to add a Timken boxcar, just like Lionel made in the postwar days in their 6464 series. It would be a nice addition to your product lineup because it would add some diversity, having some cars that are not lettered for a specific railroad. Just a thought. Thank you for your consideration. Additional support from other forum...

[4K] AVR 405 leads freight train in Venetia, PA (video)

Just uploaded today. Here is the Allegheny Valley Railroad's Washington turn, known as AVR-3, as it travels back to Pittsburgh on the ex-CSX, nee-B&O mainline. The power for the short train was AVR 405 (road slug), AVR GP40-3 4005, and AVR GP11 2008. The GP11 was dead-in-tow; the train was much longer in the morning, so I heard.
