2010 MTH Union Pacific 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler


This is my new Union Pacific 4-6-0 Freight Starter Set by MTH, from their 2010 catalog. The engine and cars fall under MTH’s Railking Rugged Rails product line. I figure these sets are real steals at under $300. You get a fantastic engine, some well done O-27 cars and a multi-function proto sound controller + constant-voltage power supply. I really wish Lionel would offer a comparably simplified and inexpensive Legacy controller. The set also comes with a loop of MTH’s Realtrax, which I’ll be trading for Fastrack on eBay since that’s what I already have. I bought this set online from T and K Hobby. When I ordered this engine, I was unsure if I’d be keeping it or re-selling it, but now I’m in love! Next up, I’m thinking some kind of Rail King Scale diesel.

Southern Pacific Steam When It Was King


These are actual 16mm home movies films, made by the Late Robert G. Sage, SR. of Reading, PA. There were 12 Reels of movies from the late 1940’s through the 50’s. I bought these 16mm Films at a yard sale last year. I had them transferred through a freind of mind. All audio has been added. The pacing scene of the Daylight, sound was provided by pacing scenes from 1996 of the Eire Limed of C&O 614. Other train sound was from other steam locomotives I took audio of through the years. Hope you enjoy. Len.
