In 45 years of business publishing books and producing videos in the 3-rail O gauge hobby, we’ve said a lot about trains. Perhaps we’ve said enough. So for this video, we’re going to shut up for a change and let the trains do the talking…literally.
With the amazing electronic advancements made throughout the modern era of toy train production, there has been a kind of revolution in the hobby where scale sized trains with realistic sounds and robust controllability using wireless handheld devices has brought in new generations of operators.
There are over 20 1/48th scale locomotives including GG1s, F3s, Hudsons, modern passenger trains like the Acela, models of vintage Pennsylvania steam switchers, a circus train, Big Boy, Triplex and many more. Passenger trains are seen making stops at the station to pick up and drop off passengers, and switchers move freight cars around in a small yard.
Many of the locomotives, including Lionel’s® VISION Line™, include realistic features like whistle steam and synchronized ringing bell. And you can see and hear them in true stereo as if you’re operating them on a layout yourself.
