  1. For Sale or Trade (member-to-member)
    Very nice O scale engine for sale. Looks good and runs well. Has the moving cooling fans which makes it look really cool while running. Both cab doors open. I'm selling only because I bought too many engines at one time and my layout is not all that big. After I had done that someone gave me...

  2. O Scale
    Hello, I’ve been restoring this old Lionel 4-4-2 I got from a flea market- so far everything has gone smoothly, motor runs fine- disassembly was easy. However, I’m getting a MASSIVE headache over trying to reassemble this thing- whether it be the smoke unit not fitting in right, or the when the...

  4. O Scale
    Rivarossi & the Indiana Harbor Belt U4a While browsing the internet a while ago I happened upon a discussion about Rivarossi’s O-Scale 2 rail steam locomotive kits, namely their Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0 (class U4a). This is a BIG locomotive for an 0-8-0; it is beefier than most Mikados, and is...

    I recently visited Big River Train Town in Hannibal, MO--a toy train museum with lots of great Lionel and 3 Rail trains both running and on display. Operator Judy Kleinman is a fascinating soul with a neat story. She let me take some video which I hope you enjoy.

    So, I posted some trains I acquired on this forum a week ago. Some older Lionel, Marx, American Flyer trains and a lot of O scale tracks, a transformer, and a DC power pack.

    Hello Everyone, I'm brand new to the forum and to Model Railroading as a whole. I'm in my late 20s and remember the joy toy and model trains brought as a child, and am looking to delve into the world of Model Railroading. I've already been to two shops near me, one of which was helpful...

    My Brother-in-Law and I built this back in the Mid 60’s. Took about one year, the tall pine trees are hand made. Today I still have some of the trains. Someday I might put them on ebay.
  10. O Scale
    I just won an MRC Pure Power Dual transformer on Ebay for $113 which included shipping. It has the original box, instructions and is in good shape. I like these units and this is my second acquisition of one. Is it my imagination or have prices on many Lionel "O" scale items come down since this...
  11. O Scale
    I have a 44 ton center cab Leigh Valley diesel, basic model, and it has a buzzing sound that's very loud and annoying and I was wondering how to get rid of such sound. I believe its a contact on the E-Unit that's causing the problem. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi, I am new to model trains and I have a question on a 4x8 layout O scale. I have a fastrack figure 8 which is 40x90. I would like to add another fastrack on the outside of the figure 8. It looks like it would be very close tolerances if it would work at all. I have a 40x60 fastrack to...
