Otaku Railfan: @MechaGodzilla2001 I got a whole set from Craigslist for $100. Hobby stores
you can find used ones.
Otaku Railfan: i recently found its original stack. the 1st gen hauler is now on a shelf
in my room since its rarely run.
KandNWLR: Subbed. Check out the Kent & North Wales Light Railway, a live steam indoor
Jamesis5: @pennyf9 All of my engines are inside my house. In what will be our guest
room, I took the chest of drawers over and loaded it up with rollingstock
and my Mack and LGB Stainz. Then next to that I have cars piled up and
boxes full of kits to build. I also have a shelf in our family room, which
I also took over, with rollingstock, a "boxcar engine", and my latest
Bachmann 4-6-0. Then in my room, where I have 2 shelves which I used to run
the trains on, I have 2 B'mann 4-6-0's and rollingstock.
Detoritrockcity31: Can i recomend a train set ? I would likeit recommend the Gold Rush express
it's battery operated ,it comes with an engine and 3 cars a Tender box car
and caboose it takes 6c batteries several curve track and straight track
and it would look great outside probably run great to
MechaGodzilla2001: @pennyf9 thanks
USAT G Scale: LGB steam locomotives are waterproof and reliable. The Bachmann Big Haulers
are good for begginers getting into the hobby but don't last long. Barry's
Backshop makes a great aftermarket replacment gear box for them. The
Bachmann "Annie" was a better build than the Big Hauler. The Aristo C-16
was re-designed with the new motor block from the Mikado. I own a Aristo
Mallet and it runs great.
MechaGodzilla2001: I cant spell one today
Christian Peterson: Why couldnt you swap the baloon stack on the 1st generation with the
shotgun stack on the one next to it? It would be more acurate.
Otaku Railfan: @Jamesis5 Thats good, I used to keep locomotives in a tote box but that was
a stupid idea (my Bachmann glebrook valey 4-6-0 and hartland 4-4-0 broke
because of this) you should make a video showing your garden locos and
rolling stock, I would like to see your toys!
railfan845: This colection is awsome!
Trainz1218: HEY!!!!!! The second locomotive you talked about is my username lol! And I
luv your trains
Otaku Railfan: @MechaGodzilla2001 LGB is the most waterproof, aristo craft, Bachmann and
the other trains are not so waterproof. You can get any of these trains wet
(rain for example) but make sure you dry them off.
Jamesis5: Great collection! Do you plan on uploading videos of the trains in motion?
Would love to see the railroad! -James
Jamesis5: @pennyf9 I have been debating on that.
ranger220022: Oh it has never been lubricated and it still looks bran new like out of the
ranger220022: I have a LGB 420 just like yours as well,i used it outside for a year or
two but not everyday but only when dry,and now im useing it for under the
christmas tree for first time and probably wont use it outside again.What
im wondering is do i have to lubricate the motor? or just the wheel shafts
and moving parts outside of the loco?.Can i just go use all purpose
lubricant that i might still have for aristo craft trains?
Otaku Railfan: @Jamesis5 same here, I tried running a battery operated locomotive and my
little brother Lionel Polar express, but that did not work. Right now, the
tracks are under 2 feet of snow and I am just to lazy to go and shovel it
out. I keep the locomotives in an old metal cabinet and the rolling stock
in a large tote box, so they are protected from the snow. My railroad is
nit the biggest, but there are 2 lines.
Chris9017: They are water proof, and can withstand Rain. Bachmann Spectrum models can
withstand Rain, but becareful with them. The geared engines are best for
withstanding rain, along with the 2-8-0s, Mallets, and K-27s, but never run
a Spectrum mogul or 4-4-0 in the rain because they are very fragile, and
will easily corrode. The geared engines have anti-corrossion matterial and
so do the LGB engines, as well as the newer Aristo Craft stuff. If you
don't want water stains, it is best to clean them
baconman1010: ILLLLLLL ARISTO CRAFT C 16 MY BOSS RITE HEREEEEEEE YEA BUDDY LOL
ranger220022: Oh correction,its bearing oil,red cap pen with goldish colour liguid.Is
that good for LGB?.
Otaku Railfan: @Jamesis5 I would but here in New York we had a major snowstorm that gave
us 2 feet of snow and I need to buy a outdoor transformer because the one I
use is an indoor one. I'll try to make a video but I will have to be
MechaGodzilla2001: Are they water proof? Please tell me. Comment on on of videos and tell me.
MechaGodzilla2001: On more question,where can I get a cheap LGB,besides EBAY.
Jamesis5: @pennyf9 I am in South Jersey and I got about 11 in. on the railroad. Snow
was to high for the engines.
Otaku Railfan: I recently found its original stack and bell, its now on a shelf in my room.
MechaGodzilla2001: O K
anthony gaona: can you do a video on the lil critter i got one on ebay 3 days ago and its
taking forever to get here and nobody has done a good video on one.
