    Just launched my celebration space freight set.. running with the ZW-275 transformer...can control four trains at once. I haven’t been to a show or store yet. You really have to see them in person to get the full scale effect.

    Well I have six trains sets. Four tracks with three transformers. Yes they are always unplugged and I have a fresh battery in the smoke alarm. If you can lay down a twenty foot by six foot track you can get it movin..

    324FE6E6-F2A9-4A0F-AF24-C53F1F6090D5.jpg The forth track will be an inner loop 054 turn because the 777 has extra long weighted pass cars..

    Any questions? You don’t get the scale effect without seeing it and hearing it..

    Well his head was actually a pale blue not much red. So my tax. airbrushed the real head. They can pump blood into there neck I guess this is done mostly in spring time strutting.

    I’m addicted to trains! Real working U.S. Navy sub that I scored off of Etsy’s.A4443CE5-4BCC-420F-889D-A1DF3368B71B.jpg
    I found a new hobby I’m restoring 1920’s #35,36 passenger cars.
