Savannah & Atlanta Heritage Locomotive

We saw the Norfolk Southern Heritage Locomotive Savannah & Atlanta #1065 SD-70ACe at Horseshow Curve in Pennsylvania. Now we have the HO Scale version of it from Bachamnn trains. Did review at BrickTsar Toys. The lcomotive looks nice and works on DCC or DC. Our layout is DC but has analog transformer. It would perform better with a modern transformer or even better with DCC.

Here is when we saw it in real life:

New MEGA Bloks Thomas Sets


2 new Thomas & Friends MEGA Bloks sets – Percy at the Farm and Thomas at the Mill. Plus a look at an older set – Percy at Sodor Engine Wash. I miss that they are not doing the DUPLO style bricks anymore. Focus this year has been on the preschool style bricks which apparently are popular for Mattel.

Henry and Spencer

We are happy to now have a gopro session which makes on board train views better for our train videos. We hope to do a lot of ride on views in upcoming videos and collection updates.

Gordon Hornby vs Bachmann



From eBay we have received (at a really great price!) an OO GAUGE Hornby the Big Engine Locomotive from Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. In this video we show him on our 4’x8′ HO Scale layout. The layout is made from mostly Atlas track and switched. We compare it do the Bachmann Trains version of Gordon. From TTTE Wiki: “Gordon is a big blue express engine. He is Flying Scotsman’s only remaining brother and the cousin of Mallard, Green Arrow, Spencer and The Flying Thistle. When Gordon was streamlined to compete in the Great Railway Show, he ran under the name The Shooting Star.”
