Hey guys. I was away for a few weeks. But I am back and here is a new video featuring my Lionel Canadian Pacific "Grain Train" with CP AC4400 #9643 (Lionel #6 - 31736) along with a "video bomb" by Canadian National on point of a "Stack Train".

Please enjoy the video.

Very nice! The rainbow hopper didn't carry grain, but certainly looks nice. I read that the chemical formula on the side of this hopper is for Hexamethylene diisocyanate, used to produce a polymer when combined with butanediol, which is a crystal. The product is used in the production of plastics. Hexamethylene diisocyanate is also used in the production of enamel paints and gives it that hard shiny surface for a more durable finish and is used in automotive and aircraft paint. So in the car the product is combined with another to produce a compound used in the plastics industry.

A long way from grain, but no doubt most folks wouldn't notice anyway. A bit of trivia, but interesting. Anyway, it's a great looking consist.

Thanks for the information. Yes, in the video, I am dropping off that car to be transferred to the plastic plant off site. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ A lot of big words in that description. Your last sentence says it all. I need to find a source for all the grain hoppers Lionel produced for the CP / CN to add to the consist. I am sure I do not have them all.
