Train Tsar Fun

Real trains. Model trains. Toy trains.

Should I get Chuggington HO Scale trains?

I am thinking of adding a few Chuggington HO Scale trains to my collection. We just got the wooden and Diecast versions of Emery in honor of my friends Emery (AFOL Man). What do you think? Should I get a few of the Chuggington series? I don’t think I will be getting more of the wooden or diecast versions, even though they are compatible with the Thomas the Tank Engine versions. J

Steamies & Diesels Bachmann Collection

This is an update to show which Bachmann Thomas the Tank Engine Engines I have. Only a few left to get that are currently out – Iron ‘Arry, Douglas, Donald. Plus the new ones that will be out soon

Intro for AFOL Man train crash video

I am working on a playlist for my friend AFOL Man. He has a couple of train crash videos. I am adding intros as part of a leanback. Still working on it. This is a sneak peak.

Track Master Harold’s High Flying Rescue – Percy the Small Engine

Got a new Track Master set. More fun with Thomas & Friends! This set comes with motorized Percy and a Harold the Helicopter static model that attaches to a track section that moves from one track location to another. A great source of accidents!

Iron Bert Bachmann Locomotive – What, no Arry?

We just added our latest addition to our Thomas & Friends HO Scale locomotive collection. We got Iron Bert. He was cheaper than Iron ‘Arry, so we didn’t get that one yet, but will soon. The Diesels do not perform as well as the Steamies on our track. I like the look, but these have been the worst performing Bachmann locomotives (engines) yet. Only a few more to get!

Latest Edition – Devious Diesel Bachmann HO scale Locomotive

We got our latest Bachmann Thomas & Friends locomotive – Diesel. This is item #58802. It seems to be the poorest performing model we have from Bachmann. Still looks cool though. In the video, if you have good eyes, you get a sneak peek at the next edition to our collection!

Train Crash Compilation #1 Thomas & Friends

Took some scenes from different videos and compiled into this. There are many more accidents to compile and more to come. Working on some future slot car and train crash videos soon.

Tanker Train Crashes!

TheyMightBeBricks joins me for some crashes with our mostly junk tank cars pulled by junk AT&SF locomotives. These toy trains are not the high quality stuff. Although I probably would get more use out of them if I did this on the floor. Most of the damage is as a result of fallen by from the table instead of the actual crash!
