This video shows my Long Island Railroad G-5s 4-6-0 steam locomotive #21 – the Sunrise Special - running at 70 miles-per-hour and pulling three passenger cars on my 12’-by-8’ layout. The engine is an MTH Premier model (20-3068-1) with PS2 that was released in 2001. The passenger cars were made by K-Line around the same time. I don’t think these passenger cars ran in the Dashing Dan blue/light blue color scheme until after steam ended on the LIRR. Nonetheless, I’ve run this train on my layout for many years. I like the steam sounds of the MTH Premier G-5s, especially when it’s running fast, and that’s how I run it on my layout. The G-5s engines did run at high speeds on the straight stretches of the east end of the LIRR.
