Hello, new here and to model trains/railroads specifically, although I am very familiar with what makes them work. 🤖 I've been researching a little bit and learning the history which is pretty cool in itself. hopefully my pics will load so you can have a small glimpse of what I have. Can you...
L.R.R.C. Year 2000 Lionel travels at a high rate of speed, but only a fraction of how fast it is capable of traveling. I reckon this locomotive can travel 2 to 3 times the speed it would take to jump the rails while turning on an 054 curve.
This video shows how inappropriately high speeds can render an otherwise safe layout into a death zone. The train gradually increases in speed over a period of 3 minutes until it reaches a critical level of speed and violently crashes onto an N gauge track.
Hi I’m Sherman and I’ve recently and abruptly developed a hobby of doing model trains and... I brush paint them with enamel.
I obtained a new O gauge Lionel 1900 set and did this. Was this the right thing to do?
I have owned the older Lionmaster TMCC Big Boy model for a few years and have had problems operating it in conventional control with the Lionel C-80 transformer. At low speeds the model becomes erratic. It jerks forward, stops, and then repeats like this until about 50% power is applied. Then it...
Hello, I’ve been posting on a few message boards my interest to sell a massive collection I recently inherited. The collection is mostly O gauge with some exceptions. It has American flyer, mth, Lionel, pride lines, lgb, McCoy, Ives, and more I’m sure. The collection spans a 2 story home and...
Could someone please tell me what die-cast truck/coupler sets come on Lionel's modern 17000 and 27000 series Standard-O Die-cast, 2-bay, offset hoppers? They don't look like the older 6-14078 Standard-O "Bettendorf" trucks with the pull-down tabs, nor do they look like the more modern...
I've been really impressed with some of the websites that are devoted to cataloging Postwar Lionel locomotives and cars. In my searches I have found some good but narrowly focused Prewar resources. I've never come across a site devoted to Prewar Lionel. There are some great books on the subject...

So for the last several years I've been running a 1959 Lionel set from the Space and Military series around the Christmas tree It belonged to my Dad when he was a kid. I had been using a CW-80 transformer I purchased in 2008 I think off of Ebay.
