Nice! How do you like the Halloween Mikado?

I have not heard from anyone else who bought one.

The Paint looks really good on these.

 

Only thing I don't like is that the orange paint was a lot glossier in the catalog, I was pretty disappointed that it didn't exactly match the advertising.

That being said it is my first LC+ Loco.  I wish the volume was just a touch louder, but that is personal preference.

With those small things out of the way, I really like this engine.  The blue tooth control works flawlessly.  I may never put batteries in the remote.  The bell is a deep church bell sound.  The whistle and other effects are great too.  I will post some video in the next couple days.

 

Regarding the sound level issue your remote may be different than what they've shown in the instruction because mine was like that on a different Lionchief set so in order to turn up the volume instead of hitting the whistle and the bell button at the same time and turning the power up you push the shift button on the microphone for sound you hold that button-down and then turn the power button clock wise all the way up and then let go of the shift button and you're all your volumes should go up hope that helps.

Joe, that looks great!  I won't have nearly as many goodies as this is my first time around.

Adratic,  that area is to become a tunnel. Once the outer wall sections get glued together I do intend to cut another hole looking in.  This should add visual interest and allow for a hand to reach in without taking the top off, if needed.  The top of the tunnel/ mountain still needs to be resolved in my head but I have plenty of material to play with. The top portion will get some dowel rods for alignment but otherwise will lift straight up to handle the inevitable derailment in the tunnel and make the finished product easier to move through doorways.

Thanks I appreciate the kind words it's taken many years to acquire those items either by buying them or making them but I'm glad you enjoyed it I really like your idea with the engine coming through the school that was pretty cool thanks for sharing that.

In the first photo, is that some type of skull mounted to the headlight of those two locomotives?

Two of them. I suppose Thomas gets some credit too, but someone posted the train cover from the Dark Tower/"Gunslinger" series and I ran with it. The first is a hand painted scull on half a bubble gum machine's prize bubble, trimmed to fit the boiler front on PW (1 screw on these 2) chosen because I shopped for goodies too soon in the season. The 3d engine is from a dollar store skeleton trimmed to fit the same size hole/notch. (both Hudsons 2046 and 

The casket tender(earlier posts) is a gift box.

The skeleton's body served as the skeleton. I was going to invert the thing to chest up and load logs like a skeleton car sould have, but the webbed ribs covered too much of the wood.

I thiink the boiler faces would make a cool 3d printing novelty. Jack o Lantern , vampires, Rudolph, Santa, a bunny, a leprechaun, Uncle Sam, etc.

 

Since then, a piles of left over bones has found a home, and some black/brown paint and a pinch of putty for hoods ought to change these Holy Roller folks into a candle wielding cult pretty easyIMG_20171012_144438IMG_20171012_145059

I still need a stake car of wood for for vampire stakes and something silver.

If I get really bored I have a ton of "ivory" plastic beads that with some putty and fiber could become a gondola of garlic.

Oh, all the shots are not posted here. I've posted a few in " What did you do on your layout today" and once in "a shot in the dark" I think.
