People will talk!

For those O scale enthusiasts this movie will just thrill you. Cary Grant and Jean Crane in "People Will Talk"....about half way through the film she goes to a department store and buys a BUTT LOAD of Lionel Trains and then The boys start playing with them...at break neck speed! Old black and white but just a hoot...besides the trains!! Its on HULU or Crackle I can't remember!

Also, on a episode of Tom and Jerry, Jerry writes a comedic book and Tom ties ol' Jerry up to his train track of his trainset and plans to run him over 'til the cananry drops a bowling ball on Tom's train!

It was a rainy, nasty day here in RI today. I was stuck inside the house with the kids. We passed the time watching a few fun DVD's.

Had a blast watching Wallace & Gromit in the The Wrong Trousers ... fun model train chase scene, shown here, but with somebody else's poor-quality dubbed sound. My kids like the part at 2:30 where Gromit grabs a box of extra track, and starts laying down new line while he's whizzing along!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rk1s-aGHO8

And, to cap off our day of intellectual advancement, we also watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang ... great fun there. Check out the "breakfast machine" train starting at 1:45 in this vid. I've gotta get me one of those!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVtuIiOWNVc (again, with dubbed voices)

Oh, yeah ... I'm a humming away ... "Truly Scrumptious ... you're truly, truly scrumptious!"

I happened to read that the real (and fully functional) prototype car used for the movie sold at auction recently. A gent in England had if for 20+ years, and sold it so someone in the US ... around $850k or so ... not quite the $2M they were hoping it would bring. Down market and all ...

"Iron Giant" ... duly noted.

Cheers,

TJ

Scales Modeled: HO, OO, and S & O at Christmas :p
Mister Rogers Neighborhood, and I remember one episode of 'The King of Queens," where the layout burst in flames! :O - That poor Lionel PRR Steam Turbine, or as it's known as in the episode, "The Boston Bullet,"... Rest in Peace.
