I have a rather large antique collection of model trains and tracks. They are in very good condition, they just need to be cleaned and dusted off. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced appraiser who would be able to take a look at the collection? Thank you very much for your time!
Months ago my mom bought herself an N gauge Bachman diesel-led train set to add to our house of train living.
I would set it up then take it down time to time, and some of the train track got funky and the loco it came with became a little less reliable.

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.

If you're ever near Rhinelander, WI, be sure to visit the historic Logging Museum's basement. There's a little known HO-scale model railroad layout there that is an exact replica of Rhinelander during the Great Depression era.
Took a trip into the Northwoods of Wisconsin over the weekend and visited two Model Railroad layouts. Shot video of both, then was invited to do a couple of the club member's private layouts. One of them was model in S-Scale (1/64th), and it was quite unique, so I thought I'd share it with the...
Well this is my last video for awhile, vacation's over from work starting Monday. However, Check out this well established permanent HO layout in Sparta, WI:
I recently completed a custom Z scale briefcase layout. I did an enormous amount of work on it and made it very detailed. I then created a website, http://www.CarlettaTrains.com, about it which has a "How To" section along with pictures of the various scenes and extra detail...
I went up to Cross Lake, MN, yesterday and visited an awesome model railroad museum run by the Northern Minnesota Railroad Heritage Association. They are nicknamed the "Northern Trackers." The model in three scales: G, O, and HO. There O-Scale layout is pretty impressive along with some locos...
