Train Tsar Fun

Real trains. Model trains. Toy trains.


Iron Bert

Hornby Iron Arry

Cars vs Trains


More slot cars vs trains! Got Sally from Disney Pixar Cars. This time Lightning McQueen, Sally, Spongebob, and Mario are pitted against Iron Bert who is only going one speed – fast. Iron Bert is a Lionel Trains locomotive from Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends

Twins are hard to tell apart

Got Iron ‘Arry today and I did not realize how similar the Bachmann versions of ‘Arry and Bert were going to look. The Lionel versions are easier to tell apart. I actually lost track of which one was which and I had to watch a previous video to find out. The Iron Bert has some “battle damage” so I can spot him now.

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!
