  1. Firefighters riding a "fire train" in to fight the Dixie fire in the Feather River Canyon. Feels like they are riding into war. This fire made its own thunder and lightening last night (after this video was taken).
  2. That is super cool. I would guess if they went through the effort to make a board and whistle for the Hudson they would have produced more than one. Makes me wonder if when they cleaned out the warehouse last year if there were any spares sold off. Has anyone seen one? I watch eBay pretty closely and didn’t see any smoking whistle parts come up, Hudson or otherwise. jppilot, would love to see a video of it working once you get the DCS setup going.
  3. It would appear the rio grande’s are delivered. Pretty sweet.
  4. Follow up post. The USAT figures fit great in the MTH passenger cars for me. At least currently, there seems to be 2 sets of USAT people, a "regular" set which seems to be 1950's-ish, and another set that is specifically labeled 1920's. The heads of the people and the girth of the people (ie their butts) are larger for the 1920's people, but I found both sets fit in the seats, other than the 1920's figures that have a suitcase next to them. Overall I prefer the 1950's set which is the set Jerry posted in the pic above, and all of those fit in the MTH seats without mods for me. I wish USAT had a set of standing figures, especially for around the bar in the observation car., but doesn't seem like they have ever made something like that. Thanks again Jerry.
  5. just saw this thread. I vaguely knew of an imax with 4449 but had never seen the above preview. It appears it will be out this spring: https://www.stephenlow.com/project/train-time/#:~:text=Created for giant screens by,giant screen theaters Spring 2021.
  6. Thanks Jerry for this posting (in 2016) about people that fit in MTH cars. I'm new to g scale (2019) and had been trying to find figures that fit in MTH cars. On ebay when I search for 1/32 figures all this stuff from China or Hong Kong kept coming up and when I ordered them they didn't fit in the seats and were clearly not 1/32. I think they are 1/29 or maybe slightly bigger and were dishonestly marketed in separate auctions as either 1/25, 1/29 or 1/32 even though they are literally the same thing. Now that I know the USAT figures fit in the seats I'm going to order me some. Looks like there are some for sale on ebay. Thanks also for pointing out I should expect to have to sand a bit to get them to fit.
  7. I’m impatient to get mine (up yellow, bnsf), so I google around every few days to see any chatter. Didn’t hit any of them but did fine this second video on 41:
  8. Anybody thats got one yet care to share some videos?
  9. I see a posting on eBay for the NS one, so those must be shipping too.
  10. It’s interesting how they placed the motor vertically - it’s more like the VO1000 than the dash8.
  11. Has anyone tried "ELO" (Testors Easy Lift Off) to remove MTH decals? When I google around I find some other forums (0 gauge) for suggestions removing MTH decals and "tampo pad printed graphics".
