This video shows my Long Island Railroad G-5s 4-6-0 steam locomotive #21 โ€“ the Sunrise Special - running at 70 miles-per-hour and pulling three passenger cars on my 12โ€™-by-8โ€™ 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 donโ€™t think these passenger cars ran in the Dashing Dan blue/light blue color scheme until after steam ended on the LIRR. Nonetheless, Iโ€™ve run this train on my layout for many years. I like the steam sounds of the MTH Premier G-5s, especially when itโ€™s running fast, and thatโ€™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.

Very colorful cars, Mel. And the sound running fast add a lot of interest. All thatโ€™s missing is the whistle

Apples55,

If a person making a video on a cellphone (me) has the usual two hands and no one else to assist, it is impossible to blow the whistle while recording... But, the terrific steam whistle is one of the reasons that I like this engine so much.

Following up my LIRR G-5s video, this video shows my Pennsylvania Railroad G-5s 4-6-0 steam locomotive #5740 running at 70 miles-per-hour and pulling two Long Island Railroad heavyweight passenger cars on my 12โ€™-by-8โ€™ layout. The engine is an MTH Premier model (20-3031-1) with PS1 that was released in 1999. The passenger cars are also by MTH. The sounds of this PS1 engine are very good when running at high speed but not quite as good as the PS2 version. The full-sized PRR G-5s #5741 (not #5740) did run on the LIRR in PRR livery.

Bob;

Iโ€™m afraid an intervention wouldnโ€™t even help you at this point
