Lionel trains show up on 'King of Queens' too.....wonder if there is a connection??? One episode centers on a train show. Doug's dad wants to get there early so he will not be set up near 'those monorail freaks'.....

Even more Lionel Trains on Cheers

ericstrains.com ·
Holy Smokes! OK, it's clear that someone involved with Cheers was a fan of Lionel. I already posted about a season 7 episode where Lionel trains were discussed, but check out this even better clip from Episode 6 of Season 8! Note the ZW, among other stuff! What's cool to think about is that I'm sure they had some train guys come onto the set to get that thing set up and running right. Thanks, Eric Siegel

For some reason, this train looked the best going fast at around 23 min into the video. I usually prefer to run the trains slower for videos.

Yeah, I prefer them to go slow but I try to do a bit of both for the videos. Thanks. -Eric Siegel

Ha, thanks. If trains were my full time job, maybe. My goal is to put out one video per week, but that doesn't always work out because some videos take a while to shoot, plus my non-train life eats up time as well. -Eric

1st off, great review once again. I too bought some of the Lionel Amtrak pass cars. I only got a 2 car set and the sound car though. I mainly run 2 rail and I am considering converting them in the future. I was just dabbling to check out the quality and the attempt. I bought the MTH 2 rail version (of the engine) and the paint scheme I chose got delivered with the wrong blue used (phase IV). It does match one of the heritage colors though? As far as this engine, IMO the engine is best run as...

So I've been binge watching the old show Cheers on Hulu. I came Episode 11 of Season 7. Check out this opening sequence! How cool is that? Thanks, Eric Siegel

Love the part about the cattle car as I have one of the postwar ones. It came with a Lionel Lines S2 that was lost years ago.

Cheers and its spinoff, Frasier, are two of the best shows ever. I would also add Taxi, Seinfeld and more recently, the Big Bang Theory. Repeated watching of these shows illustrates the brilliant writing and the fine acting chops of the ensemble casts, which makes them CLASSICS! Christopher Lloyd and the Charles brothers had a hand in several of these fine comedies.

Yeah, it's funny you say that. As I've been watching the series, I've noticed that my 16 year old son enjoys watching it and thinks it's really funny. I guess good writing holds up across generations. He grew up seeing Woody Harrelson in big movies, and was blown away to see him being funny in a TV show. -Eric

Wasnt there also an episode where they had trains on the bar and Norm uses the uncoupler track to snag a beer that’s riding on a flatcar?

I had somehow missed that episode. Thanks for sharing. A few years ago, I watched a few episodes of Cheers on Netflix with my then 18-year-old daughter. I realized that television shows from 30 years ago might not be to her taste so I told her that if it she didn't like Cheers, we could watch something else that she wanted. She said: "No, this is good. It's sweet. They take their time, tell the story, and allow the jokes to just happen." (She said this to contrast the way many modern sitcoms...

We still watch the reruns of many of these shows- still as funny as the day they were written. For the Seinfeld fans this will bring a smile- Marble Rye.....the episode was on the other night. Tears running down my face Thanks for posting this.

That's a cool model, Gene. I went to college in the Boston area while the show was in production, and made a few pilgrimages to the "Cheers" bar myself. Of course it looked nothing like the set once inside, but that never mattered...pride of place was enough. My six year-old loves the Three Stooges; more good TV that stands the test of time!

A lot of people are always surprised when great actors come from comedy. The truth is doing good comedy takes WAY more acting chops than drama. If you can do good comedy, you can do anything. Think of all the great actors who started off in comedy... Woody Harrelson, Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Bill Murray...the list goes on and on. Comedy is such an underrated art form. That's where the academy awards should be going. They make loads of dramas every year, but how...

Yes. "Tragedy is easy...it's comedy that's hard". "Dying is easy; comedy is hard". Quoting somebody - just not sure whom. Still true.

Great clip but they used the wrong controller for the 022 turnout. We had a diner near where I used to live called the Hamburger ChooChoo- they had a O-gauge track on the counter to bring your food out from the kitchen. Place burned down years ago due to a grease fire.

Cheers was a great show. Even more so now that I know they were fellow Lionel fans. I was born in 1984, I remember my Dad watching it when I was young. I need to go back and watch it also. Keep up the good work Eric!

Barry give me a quick rundown of exactly what I need besides the app, 1. MTH O 50-1017 TIU/Barrel Jack Power Adapter 2. MTH Trains TIU/TMCC 6'Connector Cable MTH501032 3. TIU 4. WIU 5. Power Supply 180 Lionel Pretend I'm even slower than you probably have me pegged out to be at train stuff lol. Also would that power supply work with my Lionel legacy 990 more efficiently than the 80 watt one I use.

Happy and safe 4th everyone. I have a growing collection of scale sized bicentennial cars that I have posted over the years. I also have a couple of semi-scale cars that celebrate out great country's birthday. I also have 21 of the 26 scale sized American Freedom Train cars. This set is made up of K-Line, Lionel, and MTH cars. I need to custom build the rest.

Re: MTH DCS WiFi Interface Unit How-To

Robert Cushman ·
Where does the Lionel Legacy 990 go into the TIU or does it go to WIU? Also what power supply is sufficient for the TIU for a basic 2 loop like I have here running 2 engines at once. Could I run a Mth train and Lionel Legacy at the same time with the DCS App? Currently have a 80 watt Lionel with legacy 990. I have 1 mth genesis I want to run all features on and kind of want to control the Lionel on the app but not sure if it’s worth the extra $ probably just grab the DcS Commander instead.

Re: MTH DCS WiFi Interface Unit How-To

Barry Broskowitz ·
Robert, Where does the Lionel Legacy 990 go into the TIU or does it go to WIU? Use MTH cable #50-1032 to connect the TIU's serial port to a Lionel SER2, and then on to the Lionel Legacy command base if you want to operate Legacy engines in Legacy mode. If you merely desire to operate Legacy engines in TMCC mode from the Premium version of the DCS App, just connect the cable directly to the Legacy command base. The need for the SER2 is because a Legacy command base cannot accept Legacy...
