From our visit to Thomas Big Day Out at the Tennessee Valley Railroad back in 2004. I don’t think my 3 and 4 year old kids were expecting to see a giant mascot. lol
I will be honest. When I start to do a video like this I usually have no idea what direction I will take. The only thing I knew was that I was going to show the Brake Van and Coal Wagon that we got from Amazon. In setting things up I needed a couple of locomotives – Thomas was an easy choice and since the Hornby Percy was already there we used it. Then I thought to get Stepney. (All the other locomotives are still waiting for the start of The Great Race).
Ended up using the tank cars since they were already on the track. I think somebody on YouTube thought I was calling Thomas “Thomas the Tank Train” before but I didn’t – he was pulling a tank train. Anyway, this is what we ended up with. Maybe one day I will use a script.
Here are some of our past accidents and crashes. Some intentional – some not. Hope you enjoy it.
I am trying to get things ready for The Great Race so that the lighting is better. Meant to film that today but the studio is not ready yet. Should be soon.
A battle to see which is stronger – Hornby Percy or Bachmann Percy. I prefer to Bachmann Percy of the Hornby. The Bachmann runs smoother and looks better in my opinion, but Hornby is faster and stronger.
We added Terence the Tractor to our layout. It is an HO Scale Bachmann accessory that we got at Hobby Town USA. One of the few times I found something actually cheaper there than online. Terence tries to help the Hornby Percy since all the other characters are off to the Great Race. This is my first attempt at voicing characters too.
