Hi Brian, Do you think that moment, with those three locomotives passing by simultaneously, was staged, photo-shopped, or serendipitous? Or ? At any rate, it sure was impressive, huh.

The one engine wish MTH or Lionel would make in scale size.  Be a great companion to my M-1.

I keep hoping I cant see why its so hard to get this one done  

Unfortunately it is a cost benefit study.  It would most probably cost MTH at least 274K to 325K to tool this locomotive.  But as I recall Lionel did make a scale size one so they would/should only have to retool for a can-motor.

Ron

Well, the front end of my new ( and probably last) Loco-motion.

Was actually ready to order a Millhouse River Studio 34" in Pennsy detail turntable.  But those $$$$ plus a multiple went for the DP.  Also precludes almost all O-gauge acquisitions for a while.

All because FORD was not going to support us with a new "true" Bronco. And the fact their 4.0L OHC engine self-destructs at around 110K/114K miles.  Mine was at 114K+ needing over $3K to fix.

Lionel did indeed make a scale one of these. I saw one at a train show just a few weeks ago  with a $275 price tag. 

Yes, but Jim it is not command control and not a can-motor.  So an expense to up grade.

My mistake, it is semi-scale, however, it is TMCC.

Jim, forum members have had their scale Lionel Yellow Belly upper graded with a Timko can motor including Scott Smith.

Went to the Shelburne Museum in Vermont last week and took some pictures of a locomotive #220,
Built in 1915 by the American Locomotive Co for Central Vermont Railway.
Taken out of service in 1956 and given to the museum.

Great Museum and a must see when visiting Vermont, plan for a whole day.

Isn't there something wrong about this picture?  The flaming exhaust from the jet engines seems to suggest this puppy is setting a rail speed record.....in REVERSE!!!!?   Talk about a ride to remember!    And an open baggage door, to boot!   

Hey, Brian, I see Tacoma Rail engines every once in awhile on the Sound Transit tracks (used be BNSF) which parallel I-5 on the west side between Lakewood and DuPont.  There is a siding at DuPont where they store a few cars enroute to/from local customers.
