    ‘Polar’, Christmas …
    ‘Polar’, Christmas Forest is now packed away until Nov. Diesel freight is on the line. Found Ertl cows ebay, MC Toys 25 for $9? Norscot 1/64 CAT tractors/equip at Hobby Lobby. Recorded Cows Mooing, off You Tube onto a cassette. Moo for 10 minutes while the grand sons ‘Load ‘em up’. Rest of cassette has recordings of Real trains off You Tube. Bells, ‘Wig Wags’, Horns, freight rolling various speeds. Grandsons enjoy visiting our house Now. They play that cassette while Diesel ‘Hauls the Freight’

    Thanks for your comments. That sounds like a wonderful setup. You should video it in action and upload to YouTube. I also used my Polar Express in a “movie”version, which you can find thru my Channel page. It’s called “The Polar Express – Christmas Comes to Lionel Town”. I have to say that it is my favourite of all my videos. I had great fun making it. You would too with yours. Cheers.

    Christmas scene, …
    Christmas scene, wife picked up a set of four various sized, pre-lightedtrees from a hobby store. The train runs through the trees like in the movie. Need wolves.We found that Hobby Lobby had 1″ Reindeer that look exactly like ‘Caribou’. 6 for a dollar. I stuck the herd of 48 on a couple of mirrors (the ice). Grand kids love the set up and tell us the story as the Polar Express makes it’s way to the battery powered Hallmark? North Pole. Santa flies around it in his sleigh drawn by Reindeer.

    There are a few models of the Polar Express that I know of. Mine is a Lionel O gauge that came out several years ago. Lionel have also put out a more deluxe (and expensive) model with a more detailed locomotive and heavyweight passenger cars. They also have a G gauge set that is much bigger and operates (I believe) on batteries with a wireless remote control. Check Lionel’s web site and you should be able to find them there. There is no “better”- just what you like.

    The conductor plays …
    The conductor plays each time you press the bell button on the transformer. So it plays when you turn the bell on AND when you turn the bell off. In the video, I was turning OFF the bell. That way the bell does not interfere with the conductor.

    Good question. If …
    Good question. If I remember correctly, I didn’t power down to zero voltage at the 20 second point. That way I was able to start forward again without cycling through the e-unit. I was running on FastTrack. I think I was using the Lionel CW-80 transformer as well. Hope this helps. Thanks for watching. I’m working on a full scale Christmas production using the same train. Watch for it.

    The comm talk and …
    The comm talk and crew chatter turn off automatically when the engine is in gear. They only operate in neutral. The chuff comes from the tender and is synchronized with the speed of the wheels. Only the conductor announcement comes from the conductor car. One problem with this car is that the announcement is triggered by the bell button on the transformer. So the bell can drown out the conductor! It works best when you are turning the bell off rather than on.  Thanks for watching.

    How did you turn off the com talk & crew chatter for the tender?
    Is it the tender that has the train sounds or the conductor car?
