On my way to work this morning, I heard on the news that a high priority of a Presidential candidate (who will remain nameless to avoid political controversy) is infrastructure, and particularly high speed rail.
Since I discovered slow prototypical modern O Gauge trains like TMCC and LC+, I have been hooked on it.
However, if and when we have real high speed rail in the USA, then fast model trains may arguably become prototypical.
This thread is a place to post videos and photos of your high speed O Gauge trains.
I would love to see some modern fast model trains such as Acelas (sp?) and the like, which I don't have, and to learn more about them.
For instance, I assume that modern high speed rail would include sleek, streamline passenger trains, but what about freight trains? I can't imagine long freight trains over 1 mile long racing along the right of way.
Below is a video of a K Line Baltimore and Ohio diesel freight train, with 2 powered units, racing along my layout:
I have wanted the above locomotives to run slower, but they are very peppy. Maybe that peppiness will be more desirable once we have real high speed rail. Arnold
