After months of planning the lower level bench work is complete! A newly constructed 4×8 table has filled the gap but there’s still a lot of work to be done. I have laid out the outer loop of Lionel Fastrack however it will be temporary. Why? Well, I’ll be using the same track for the Amherst Train Wreck 100th Anniversary Event so the rest of the track will have to wait until after March 29th!
In the mean time I might as well have some fun with my Lionel Vision Line Union Pacific Big Boy #4014! This locomotive was cataloged in 2014 and broke new ground in the O-Gauge World with 4 smoke units both stacks, whistle and blowdown, three speakers, the disappearing coal load along with all the other fantastic features of Lionel Legacy equipped locomotives. It’s hooked up to 29 refrigerator cars and one UP bobber caboose. The reefers are a mixture of wood sided and steel car models from Lionel, MTH, K-Line, Atlas, and Weaver. If you hear squeaking wheels those sounds are coming out of one of the new Lionel Vision Line Pacific Fruit Express reefers.
