Shining Time Station

Got the “See Who Is Faster” series of Gashapon capsules with Connor, Caitlin, Ben & Bill (in blue), Mavis, Thomas, Winston, Shining Time Station, and more.


I am growing weary of people that comment without watching. I guess I shouldn’t complain and be thankful for any comment I get at this point (channel is dying since algorithm change in October). But it is a little annoying when people ask questions that are answered in the video, title, or description. I have had people ask questions that are answered in the first 5 seconds of a video – usually the question is “Where did you get it?” and I say where I got it it in the title and introduction. Therefore, I am thinking of NEVER saying where I got something. It is kind of pointless anyway since most of what I get is from sellers on Amazon or eBay and once I buy it, it is not available anymore anyway.


James the BIG Red Engine

We just got the James the Red Engine G Scale or Large Scale train set made by Lionel from 1994! It is a really neat set. From the “Shining Time Station” era of Thomas & Friends. Has moving eyes and swappable faces. Despite its age it performed great! This is our second Large Scale train. The first was made by Bachmann:

Will have to get them out together to compare.
