A long N Scale freight train with Henry from Thomas and Friends pulling it
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.
This is what I have so far that runs on HO scale track for my Thomas & Friends characters made by Hornby and Bachmann. For this video I did not include the Narrow Gauge stuff since I do not yet have a narrow gauge section on my layout – working to change that!
The collection has really grown in the past year and some of the locomotives have suffered from the abuse and rigorous play that we have put them through. Which is your favorite character we have?
Collection videos have quickly come to be one of my favorites to do. It actually takes a long time to get out everything and set it up, plus I have to deal with the cat, but in the end I like the results. So far with our Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends characters we have done Annie & Clarabel (which needs to be updated), Percy the Small Engine, Emily, Gordon the Big Engine, Connor, James the Red Engine, Henry the Green Engine, and I am sure I am forgetting something. What characters will be next? Why haven’t I done the Thomas collection yet?
Had a contest between the 3 largest of the Thomas & Friends locomotives on my railroad: Spencer, Gordon, and Henry. Each had to pull all of the Sodor freight and passenger cars around the entire layout in the best time. Watch to see who wins.
These world strongest engine contests do take their tolls on the locomotives. We are working on another speed competition that will take place on a test track instead of the Sodor layout. Stay tuned!
