    I Crashed My Lionel Polar Express Train Set!

    January 17, 2020


    The UPS guy brought me something interesting today. It’s a very inexpensive G scale model train set.
    One of my YouTube viewers told me about it. Now, if you were to buy a G scale starter
    set from a company like LGB… That would typically set you back three or four
    hundred dollars, but this set was under a hundred. That’s so cheap, I figured what the heck!
    Let’s just order one I’ll make
    a video about it for YouTube. But there is, of course, a catch.
    In fact, there’s several catches! So, let’s just unbox it. We’ll take a look at it
    and see what kind of compromises that they had
    to make to get the price under $100. This is a Polar Express train set.
    You know, the classic Christmas story…
    started as a book in 1985… And then became an animated
    movie with Tom Hanks in 2004. Now I’m pretty sure that Lionel didn’t design
    this for a 60 year old guy like me to add to
    his collection of G scale model trains. I think the idea was more that a 60 year old guy like me
    would buy it for his four-year-old grandchild as a way
    to introduce them into model trains. I didn’t even know that Lionel made G-scale stuff at all.
    I thought they were just in to O and HO. But since they say that this is G scale,
    I’m hoping that I can get it to run on my big layout… That’s made up of LGB-brand metal track.
    Let’s see if it works! So, what comes in the box is the locomotive and
    a tender, and then two of these passenger cars… A remote control to operate it,
    and a whole bunch of this plastic track. Now this is one of the big compromises
    that they’ve made.
    It’s plastic. It doesn’t conduct electricity. This kind of locomotive doesn’t get
    electricity through the rails like a
    normal G scale train would get. This has a bunch of batteries inside of it.
    Six C cell batteries to run it… And then two more AA batteries in the
    remote control to operate that. So, it’s not getting power through the track
    like a regular G-scale locomotive would. Now, speaking of regular G-scale locomotives, OK… This may look good here by itself,
    but when you put it up against a
    real LGB-brand G-scale locomotive… You can see that we’re talking
    about a big difference in size. And I don’t know if it comes across on camera,
    but a huge difference in quality. As you would expect…
    This being a hundred dollar set,
    and this being about a $900 locomotive on its own. But this is like toy quality,
    and this is the genuine article right here. But the question that’s killing me…
    and especially more so now that I see
    the size difference between these two locomotives… They say that this is a G-scale set.
    I’m really wondering…
    Is this going to run on my LGB track?
    Let’s find out! Here’s the locomotive.
    Let me line it up with the track. Oh no!
    Oh, it looked good on this side
    when I lined this side up. But it is totally hanging off the side over here. This is not standard G scale width.
    This is wider than regular G-scale. It doesn’t fit on that track.
    So, I’m not going to be able to lay my…
    I’ve got hundreds of feet of LGB track… I’m not going to be able to
    run this on that.
    It’s… it’s just a different size. That is a big problem, because I was really hoping
    to be able to run this under battery power
    on all my existing track. So, now I’m going to have to
    put this plastic track together
    and run it as a whole separate thing… Independent from the rest of my G-scale stuff.
    That’s too bad, and that’s a disappointment. OK, I’ve got it all set up.
    We’re going to make it work. The true test for me of whether
    something is designed well… Is whether you can make it work without reading
    the owner’s manual and without any tools. And unfortunately, this failed on both counts.
    I needed a Phillips screwdriver… To be able to open the battery compartment on
    the locomotive and also to be able to open the
    battery compartment on the remote control. And the other thing was
    I couldn’t figure out how the batteries
    went into the locomotive. So, I did have to read the owner’s manual
    to figure that out. So, that was a fail there. But now it should be all set to go.
    So, we’re going to power it on. There’s a power switch on the locomotive itself,
    and also on the remote control. If you turn on the power switch on the locomotive,
    it beeps like that until you turn on
    the power switch on the remote control. Now, the fun part! OK, on the remote you’ve got some controls. (bell clangs) A bell. Nice sound effects! (steam whistle blows) A steam whistle.
    Another good sound effect! And check this out! (Conductor announcement)
    ALL ABOARD!
    THIS IS THE POLAR EXPRESS! OK, I like that!
    That’s fun. Now we can either turn it to forward or to reverse. And there’s not enough room on my kitchen table here
    to make a full loop… So, I hope it’s very responsive after I start it and
    then try to stop it before it runs off the end of the table. (Sound of steam train chugging) OH! (laughing)
    For a minute there, I thought it was going
    to go right off the end! When I turned it to off,
    it didn’t immediately stop.
    But it stopped in time. All right, here’s reverse. (sound of steam train chugging) Nice steam train sounds there.
    All right, so I like that. So, I guess the next step is we’ll set it up on the floor.
    I’ll use all the track that came with the set. It’s enough track to go around
    a Christmas tree at Christmas time.
    I’m pretty sure that’s what the whole point is. (Conductor announcement)
    ALL ABOARD!
    THIS IS THE POLAR EXPRESS! (sound of steam train chugging and whistle blowing) Even though I’m disappointed that I can’t run
    this supposed G-scale train on my
    existing G-scale tracks… I have to admit that once I put the Lionel tracks
    down on my living room floor and started
    running the train, I had fun. For less than $100, it’s certainly a tremendous value. The working headlight on the front of
    the locomotive is a nice touch. The best part is the sound.
    The “all aboard” announcement is fun and
    the bell and whistle sound effects are even better. (Sound of a steam train whistle) Also, the chugging sound of the train in motion. Now you certainly get much better sound effects
    on a real G-scale setup,
    but at this price what you get really is impressive. One other feature I haven’t mentioned yet
    is that the locomotive can operate at
    your choice of three speeds. I’ve been running it at the low speed, so far. Here’s the medium speed. (Chugging sound is faster than before) And now here is the highest
    speed setting for the locomotive. (Chugging sound is even faster than before) Of course, you use the remote control to set the speed.
    Once you’ve picked the speed you want… You can set the remote control down and
    the train will just keep operating at that speed. I have no idea how long it would go
    on one set of batteries. I would definitely look into
    buying some rechargeables if I was you. One negative thing that jumps out at me
    is the way the train lurches to a start
    when you first start it moving. (Sound of a steam train whistle) That’s a very unrealistic start up.
    Too bad they couldn’t figure out a way to get it to
    gradually start moving from the stopped position. That’s a problem you wouldn’t have
    if you had spent three or four times the cost
    of this set to get a real G scale starter set. Now, because running this train around and around
    this oval over and over again
    gets a little boring after a while… Be aware that you can buy
    more of this plastic track and even switches. And it’s all pretty affordable
    since it’s all made from plastic.
    It seems pretty durable, too. (Sound of the train’s bell) You know that it’s just a matter of time
    before any kid you give this set to
    will stage a train crash on purpose! So, for my big finale…
    let’s do a train crash! I know…
    that wasn’t a very good train crash. Seemed like a funny idea.
    Maybe it would be funnier with music… (Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” plays and repeated
    train crashes are synchronized with the cannon sounds) 20 years of experience editing videos
    and I think I finally nailed one! Well, in the end, this inexpensive little
    toy train set did win me over . If you’ve got a budget of $100
    and want to give a really great gift
    to some four to ten year old kid… I think you’d be hard-pressed to do better than this. Now, I think it goes without saying…
    but I’ll say it anyway… Don’t buy this for an adult
    and don’t buy this for anyone that
    already owns some real G scale track. But if you’ve got a kid, or a grandkid,
    or a niece or a nephew in that
    four to ten year old age group… Or even if you don’t,
    but you like the idea of running
    a train around the Christmas tree… …without investing three to four hundred dollars
    or more in a real G scale setup… I think I really can recommend
    Lionel’s Polar Express train set to you. I just refuse to say that it’s G scale,
    because it really isn’t. Now if you want to buy
    one of these Polar Express train sets,
    just click on the link that should
    be on screen right now Or if you don’t see a link on the screen,
    look below in the description or the comments. Also, if you know someone that you think might be
    interested in one of these bargain-priced train sets… Click on the “share” button
    and share this video with them. The “share” button is the one that looks
    like an arrow with a goofy hook to it. Of course, I’ve got many more videos planned
    for the coming months, so subscribe to my channel
    if you want to make sure that you don’t miss any. I’ll continue to make videos about model trains… But I’ve also got some really interesting vacations coming up on cruise ships.
    So, there’ll be some new cruise videos coming this Fall. For now, I’ll leave you with
    four suggested videos to take a look at… Three about model trains, and one about an amazing vacation we took on a cruise ship earlier this year. I’m Jim Zim.
    Leave a comment in the video, if you’d like.
    I read them all! It’s always interesting to hear what
    people have to say about these videos.

    Thomas and Friends Mystery Wheel Motorized Wooden Railway Toy Train Races

    January 15, 2020


    Mystery Wheel races! Look at this crazy cuckoo track, William!
    Is that super dangerous? I’m sure our trains will be fine. Team Thomas; Thomas,
    backwards forwards Thomas, olds Thomas, snowy Thomas. Team Hero of the Rails;
    Spencer, Hiro, Diesel and Gordon. Team Splendid Red Engine; James, Victor, gray
    wheels James, backwards forwards James. Team purpley pink; Salty,
    Lady, Rosie, Charlie. Team Green Percy, backwards
    forwards Percy, Toby (the greenest engine on Sodor), old Percy. And
    team kids toys play; Big Red Engine, Brio Freight train, Metroliner and Jet Engine. I think you should pick Thomas, okay! Who purple Charley in
    the world this yes Thomas. Well a couple of Thomas is picking up on Charlie here.
    Well joke’s on you Charlie, because you’re going up against backwards
    forwards Thomas and mattel Thomas. Are you ready? They’re off! It looks like,
    whoa, looks like old South part of this, Oh Charlie on the bridge now. It’s a
    bridge to start tipping it looks like backwards forwards Thomas definitely in the
    lead, but he gets stuck up on the hill after the tunnel. Charlie comes in second
    no problems on the hill whatsoever, he’s going over to Sodor Bay Bridge. Liam can
    you help out backwards forwards Thomas a little bit of push? But Charlie looks
    like he’s ahead of new Tomas, that says he’s going up the second bridge.
    Backwards forwards Thomas again with a little bit amazed you, but who’s gonna be
    the first off? Oh no! Charlie stuck in the tunnel! It’s gonna;
    Thomas has both these engines are having problems on the final Hill! Thomas the
    Tank Engine definitely having a two-to-one advantage to win comes
    through in the end. Green three Percy’s or Toby? What’s it
    gonna be who’s it gonna be? We’re getting Wow Thomas again are you
    fixing this? Thomas seems to be rather popular here.
    Oh, learning curve Thomas. Oh kids toys play! Big Red our big red locomotive;
    learning curve Thomas; and Toby the tram. Who’s gonna take the bridge first? Looks
    like Thomas is stuck. Can’t be helped about that’s Big Red it’s the first to
    go through the tunnel, and he’s getting stuck up on the bridge. Toby now coming
    up and climbing the hill, as Thomas gets a little help from the driver, and it’s
    now on the way, but it doesn’t matter. Toby is fun, well I had at this point is
    he’s entering up the second hill. If you will going through Dustin’s, Oh does he get
    stuck? Does he need a little bit of help? Just a little bit, of not just Toby comes
    through, and he’ll go on to the next round. big dragons lots of help
    apparently on these hills and burning Kurt Thomas also seems to struggle a bit
    Toby seems to be the best engine suited for this heli track which is just
    wreaking havoc on the engines ooh purple let’s see how salty does rat I think this would be good for old
    backwards forwards James and hero of the rails longest and best I pull the
    Express backwards for James Gordon the big number four engine and everyone’s
    favorite dockside diesel salty and they are off and it looks like riding the
    lead wow what a three-way tie here who’s going to be the first to knock over the
    bridge it looks like a tie between James and Gordon and assault he’s coming at
    third going into the tunnels but who’s gonna have problems and it looks like
    James might need a little bit of a boost going uphill if Gordon Tao takes the
    lead he’s taking the lead and he’s with salty James is coming up fast after that
    little boost and it looks like Gordon now needs a little bit of help and James
    it’s Gordon that salty go neck-and-neck but who will be the first off the leap
    of faith outside Gordon who need a little bit of a salty gets stuck a
    little bit in the time line James also having problems in what’s turning out to
    be our toughest track of all time Gordon out wins the third race purple lady or
    Rosie let’s go with Rosie a past champion green and mean you choose Percy
    okay let’s choose this Percy kids toys play we have much love these three
    engines do you think we should take I think does metroliner is actually like

    and second in Metro minor a third will it be enough for her to go over and it
    looks like her see what we raised Metroliner with his driver and because
    of that he kept getting stuck on the bridge and Percy wins he rode the rails

    Spencer everyone’s favorite visitor on the Island of Sodor kids toys play let’s
    go with Brio what do you think real can do it okay and team red gray wheels
    James himself folks we’ve got learning curve James Spencer the private train
    and briault the freight train remote control William who do you thinks gonna
    win this one you’re going with Spencer I’ll be honest with you I’m gonna pick
    Briana freight train are you ready they’re off and of course Brio goes
    right ahead he’s got Q bodies as opposed to one and he’s going big and fast
    looks like Spencer might need a little help on the bridge this James makes it
    past the bridge but the big story here is Brio all the way at the Sodor bay
    branch as he is just navigating these tracks up and around and he has done
    folks the fastest time Spencer and James both need a help they’re both on the
    soda or bate bridges now as they go back down into the valley looks like James
    having a better time going down the hill Spencer definitely having a better time
    going up and he goes through the man in the hill

    engine is gonna be pushing and car this is the safest trade ever Lee if you have
    any predictions about who’s gonna win this race
    you think cotton cars gonna win I’m gonna go with Victor I think Victor’s
    gonna do a good job handling this one well are you ready they’re off a jet car
    of course goes as fast as you can with that bad rail will he make it up the
    hill you might need this a little bit of help as five foot sports Percy now it’s
    going up the hill with Victor and it looks like jet engine being the boss
    that he needs a little bit of help if he’s going through and he goes on to win
    backwards for it Percy needs no help neither does Victor here as bacala
    sports comes in second and Victor will he finish yes you guys okay Liam are you
    ready for the second round yeah these are the engines making them
    in the second round interesting to note most of them are new Thomas actually
    except for what one Brio one learning curve and jet engine here all the rails
    which of these here on the rails are we gonna race buddy hero diesel purple lady
    of the rails hey nice kids toys play pankkar and jet
    engine here’s the classic combination of jet engine and hand car native and super
    friendly diesel liam who do you thinks gonna win this race diesel you know what
    I’m going with pan car off it looks like jet engine definitely in the lead here
    go through the tunnel and up the hill though you use a little help there’s
    waves coming in second and diesel comes in third it looks like coming over now
    jet engine is pushing a little bit more help will it be enough to come out of
    this track it looks like he’s stuck lady is coming at second far in a way it
    looks like you needed a little bit of help lady they need any help whatsoever
    and diesel needs a little help too ladies getting stuck in the man with the
    health track jet engine continues to impress here on Sodor clean person
    everyone’s favorite green engine Percy here all the rails looks like it’s gonna
    be big strong Gordon and kids toys play Breo
    Gordon the Express engine Percy good to see you
    and briault Liam do you have a prediction son who’s gonna win this race
    I think Brio is gonna win as well he is just awesome at this track ready off and
    brilliant definitely in the lead right off the bat is they hit the bridges will
    it be enough that he stays on track as he goes down the tip bridge Percy in
    second looks like Gordon’s coming at Tara but the big story here’s briella’s
    he’s already on Sodor Bay look how far ahead he is of his competitors here
    folks is he’s going up the second hill and he’s at Dustin and he will fall like
    Dustin person coming in second as he is going up the hills with Gordon hot on
    his tail at the pink will be enough will he go through the matter with the hells
    and he comes out unscathed as Gordon gets stuck in the shaft
    griot the freight train doing absolutely excellent here today for our final race
    in the second round it looks like we have Thomas and we have Toby but we need
    a third engine William so how will we spin the wheel and see what color comes
    up and we’ll take one of our eliminated and eliminated engines and put them in purple we have out of these four
    eliminated engines who should get a second chance
    rosy cast happy and rosy with that light let’s get her in the race rosy Toby and
    Thomas Willie who do you thinks gonna win this one you think Toby Thomas you
    think Thomas I’m gonna pick Toby I don’t think rosy has what it takes this looks
    like a three-way tie looks like rosy is now in took place they’ll be coming in
    first and he’s the first attempt to bridge Thomas coming in second rosy
    definitely in third as they’re going into the tunnels will Toby be able to
    climb the hill he’s having absolutely no problems whatsoever Thomas still in
    second the roads he’s still in third is Toby takes a commanding lead over the
    Sodor Bay Bridge it looks like you got a little bit stuck to ever work right
    through it it’s he’s already on the second hill still in second place with
    Thomas coming up over his hell and Rosie in turn and it looks like Toby will go
    on to win this race as Thomas comes in second and Rosie has no problem going to
    the ship we are down to the final race here folks as a three-way kids toys play
    team is definitely doing good with two entries as remote-control Brio freight
    train and jet engine pushing that ham car both in there Toby the tram engine
    representing Team Green is the lone contender William I have an interesting
    idea for this race how about we take this track and race backwards that’s not
    like fun real freight train Toby and jet engine
    hand-carve William any predictions Breo I think Brielle’s gonna win as well
    let’s see what happens they’re off it looks like jet engine oh he needs a
    little bit help up the hill at 300 now in the lead with Toby at second jet
    engine is hot troubles going up – held on this time he
    is rushing but brios definitely a big league is route going up the bridges
    here goes Fiona can you catch up what do you got do it for you a little bit he
    will go on and Brio always jab did having problems Toby can’t open ago she
    ate this Oh jet engine what happened there as here comes Toby on track and on
    time Henrietta would always be proud and here at the man in the Hills truck mr.
    Percival hiding the trophy over to Brio hewn state’s toy train race on the
    weirdest track I think we might have ever done hey guys click here to watch

    The fantastic miniature world of model railroading and railway modelling in Germany

    January 7, 2020


    The Miniature Wonderland is the
    world‘s largest model railway, located in the city of Hamburg, Germany. More than 15 million visitors
    from all over the world have already visited this famous
    model railroad exhibition. Spreading over more than
    1,500 square meters, a unique and outstanding exhibition built
    in HO scale arose in 760,000 man hours and it keeps on growing. Next to sophisticated technologies, the Miniature Wonderland is known for
    its captivating richness of detail. There are 250,000 figures
    lovingly set in scene. There are moving cars and ships. And, at the miniature airport airplanes
    are taking off and landing every minute. The Miniatur Wonderland
    is a breathtaking miniature world unmatched
    anywhere in this world. Every year more and more visitors are
    discovering the Miniature Wonderland. But also behind the scenes,
    there is a lot to report: For example, currently more than
    360 people are working there. From technicians to art students – the whole team is going to
    create new worlds in HO scale. The great exhibit invites its
    visitors to dream and to observe. And, visitors get the
    possibility to look at our world from a totally
    different perspective. Although the model trains – sometimes
    – disappear in the background, however, not only the
    creation of these amazing landscapes makes Miniatur
    Wonderland so unique. It is also the innovative high-technology, which has never been installed
    in model railway layouts before. This technology, hidden within the impressive landscapes, is an important factor for the
    fascination and uniqueness. For example: 385,000 lights, which are dynamically controlled by a
    self-developed light control system, provide an almost perfect
    simulation of day and night. Of course, also approximately 300 amazing
    miniature cars must be mentioned, which are controlled by several computers. Finally, Germany’s Miniatur Wonderland is
    not only a normal model railway exhibition, but a miniature world – for
    the young and the old – which invites its visitors in many ways
    to marvel, to dream, and to discover. So, please: Visit Germany. Visit Hamburg. And, visit the Miniature Wonderland. Thank you.

    Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway North Pole Track Build

    December 10, 2019


    It’s track build day! Liam what kind of track
    are we gonna build? Are we gonna have a snowy Christmas track? We already got our
    blankets out to make the Island of Sodor look snowy, and we have all our Christmas
    stuff. Wow! There’s way too much snowy Christmas
    stuff. Let’s get it all out! There’s a lot of snowy Christmas stuff. Do I do just build a
    snow track, or do you want to have a Christmas set? Where you need every piece?
    Then aren’t we okay? We’re gonna separate the track pieces from the destinations,
    from the trains. All right, pull Express tracker. We can have this big mountain
    right in the middle there, and where do you wanna put it? Santa’s Village over on
    this side, do you think we have the Polar Express train? So, what side is this? North Pole.
    And then this will be Sodor. Okay, you have your snow banks up here. Over here, we have
    Santa’s workshop, and what is this? This is like the Welcome Wagon thing. Yeah
    that is a freaky outdoor thng. North Pole signal house, very important signal house.
    And the Merry Christmas tunnel. We’ll put that there.
    Hey, I’m gonna go, oh you wanna do that? And you want to go through that hole,
    That tunnel again? Wow that’s one big snow bank. I am going to come off here
    and I think we’re gonna get right into Santa’s Village right away. You know what?
    Let’s put the tunnel there. That may be on the other side, a tunnel we’ll put we’ll
    put the North Pole signal house that looks happy with that. Oh, all right we’re
    gonna come down go through the Christmas tunnel, come around and go through. This
    is the very festive entrance to Santa’s Village. I think we’ll put the North Pole
    signal house right here. A branch off of it and maybe we’ll put Santa’s Village
    somewhere in here. Well yeah what do you have going on over here? Look at this
    place, this is insane. You’re already building this huge track over here?
    I like the festive ramps that we have in Christmas colors, red and bright green. I
    think we’re gonna build this up over the track. What’d you guys think of this, and
    we could have Santa’s Village maybe like right in the middle?
    And let me know, like to start off we have these Brio ramps. They’re kind of
    greenish too aren’t they? Yeah we can make this very Christmassy if we just
    alternate. Let’s make this green, – doom doom doom doom doom doom so green, red
    green, and then we can go back to red. All right, let’s have an update on what
    Liam’s doing. Man, you were building like crazy! Look at this, you’re going up and
    all over the place. You got the hills going down, oh hey you got the snow. Holy!
    I’ve never seen you do this before! This is awesome William! You just could put
    that in there! Now you’re turning into a better builder than your dad. Over on my
    side the Christmas side, we’re doing pretty good. Not as good as what Liam’s doing.
    Thank you. Alright, I’ve hit a snag outside of the magical Santa Claus
    village here. I got this wraparound, but I don’t know where I’m gonna end up. I want
    to meet it up to that track. What do you got going on, are you building this? Look
    at you you’ve got your entire side almost done, don’t you? Okay, I think I got it.
    Finally got it figured out here, you got the Polar Express ready. Doesn’t even
    make it around here. Oh, and he does go underneath. Good. Oh yay, within your side
    you’ve already got. Look at this science to go to the North Pole, you’ve already
    got your trees up! You’re really going. I think we’re gonna put some accents here.
    We’ll have like little Christmas tree there, maybe we’ll put a Christmas tree
    here as well. We think we should have one of the reindeer, and maybe we’ll put some
    of these presents out in random places. What do you think?
    Put that lights right up there. Oh is it gingerbread man? We may put
    those right by the Christmas tree. We’re Thomas do you think we should use snow
    cover Thomas, winter wonderland Thomas, santa’s little engine, Christmas Thomas? I would you know what to use Christmas time?
    Santa’s little engine. And what Percy do you think would be best? That snow covered
    Percy, Jack Frost Percy, and winter wonderland Percy? I think so! – Winter
    wonderland. Here we have lights. It’s like we got Santa’s little helper, and he’s
    pulling Santa, and we got winter wonderland Percy. You’ve got some
    presents. Oh candy king car we’ve got Christmas lights Sydney, snowy Rosie’s
    she’s got that Wreath on her. I think that’s pretty Christmasy. Snow storm
    Diesel. Snowy James, this is Thomas wood. And
    who’s this guy William? You got the Polar Express. Let’s check out this rocket you
    built Polar Express! The Polar Express from the Island of Sodor. Originally you think up and around the bend for express. Nice!
