Okay so I got inspired to start building a couple module layout bench works by looking at all the cool module layouts from the competition on walthers trains contest that and I said I was going to build something like this for a while but never really got around to it until now. both benchworks are 2 x 4 feet and one of them does not have legs yet working on that still.
Warning The music used in this video I do not own I'm using for education purposes the rest of the materials such as pictures and video are mine. Now sit back and enjoy the video.
The Video contains a Ho scale 1:87 scale down version of the real locomotive this one is an old Athearn Genesis locomotive that I picked up online from ebay back when I moved to my first apartment in Escondido California that place was a dump never move there.
The Santa Fe Railroad made it's last purchase with these locomotives in 1995 then the BNSF railroad took over and the locomotives where patched to BNSF that once Santa Fe.
Here is my Ho scale (1:87) scale version of an Santa Fe F45 number 1936 on the cab. I have done some major overhauling of the locomotive with LEDs, SoundTraxx Tsunami 2 EMD 2 sound decoder, scratch built parts like handrails, and other various parts and paint. so sit back and enjoy the video,
Here you all go 1 of the 3 projects is now done well all 3 are done. This one is really cool though this one I had to learn all new skills like milling out channels to make room for a 28mm round speaker from soundtraxx. Now this is a Ho scale (1:87) model train that is a locomotive that the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway or Santa Fe for short the railroad is No longer in existence it has merged with B.N. in 1996 now known as the B.N.S.F. sad but that happens when you got to much competition. well anyways I was overhauling the model to meet my tastes and I made it to where it looks like it did in the mid 1970s to late 70s so I hope you enjoy it.
Here is another video on my Model Train Locomotive Overhaul projects all 3 locomotives are almost done with there overhaul to having rice grain incandescent bulbs to LEDs, installing speakers, to installing scratch built parts from brass and other metals, and now there will be the decoder installation on these soon I hope when the decoders get here.

Okay here is the scoope on the model train projects so far of the 3 locomotives that are getting overhauled with LEDs, Speakers, New Decoders and much more.
Please leave a comment and hit that like button share the video as well to your family, friends, and other new comers to the hobby.
Okay here is a little how to on how to solder wires to objects like speakers, LEDs, and decoders. This is all in Ho scale which is 1:87 scale so it's really challenging for the first time to wire a speaker up and leds then decoder that controls the functions of those features of the model train as well the movement of it.
Let me give you all the link of where to get this stuff for your locomotives.
that's just a sample of where to go for some of this stuff though the rest you will need to do on your own. like the airbrush and the air compressor for the airbrush.

throw some comments in please I would love to know what you think of this channel so far you Do it your self model train projects.
Here you all go I have made a video to update the progress with my model trains in Ho scale I have been installing LEDs and other stuff that needs to go into these models. So check this video out.

Here is a another Athearn Trains Product from there Genesis line of premium quality model trains. This one is the FP45 #5942 that is in the Yellow/Blue Bonnet Freight Paint Scheme This locomotive was once a passenger engine until the 1970s when Santa Fe could no longer afford to keep there passenger service going when Amtrak took over. This model represents well at least attempted to represent the prototype when it had it's beacon light in the late 1970s you will see in this video on I think Athearn Trains was trying to go for but did not hit the nail on the head totally when it came to being prototypical for this model. anyways enjoy the video please comment, like, subscribe, and share the video.
Here is a New Video here about the F45 EMD Freight Variant locomotive of the FP45s The F45s were designed for Freight hauling only during there time with the Santa Fe Railroad acquired them they eventually were scrapped in the early 2000s the only locomotives of this type that survived are the FP45s not the F45s. This model by Athearn Trains part of there Genesis line are a perfect example of there existence This model is in (1:87) Ho scale for those who want to know. this model does not have DCC, LEDs, or Sound however When I'm done with it there will be. I hope you enjoy the video please share the channel, hit the like button, comment down below, and subcribe.
on a little side note I did manage to find a only picture of the #1936 of the prototype with a strobe beacon light.
okay this video is a little long I do apologize for that I try to keep my videos at least 5:00 minutes long so that I don't bore the audience on this stuff. However I do go the extra mile to ensure it has keeps people interested so I hope for this one you share this video with friends and other model train people. This model train is in Ho scale which would be (1:87) scale down version of the real thing so enjoy the video.

Okay Hi everyone this one is part slide show video and the regular video it's just to much time to edit this stuff and get into a video so this is the biggest video that i have ever made since moving to bitchute so please just share the video and watch it. thank you.
This is a Walther's Trains Ho (1:87) scale version of the real thing. I tried to find info about if this car is still around I could not any other info about it either so I can't really say much about the car itself. I installed female figures since I made a mistake when I ordered them I thought I got a female train crew but not female nude figures but it still fits this car for a certain reason because this car is a sleeping car so it's not that big of an issue. well anyways enough of me rambling enjoy the video please comment, like, subscribe,
Hi everyone this model review is Intermountain Railway Co. in Ho scale this model is a representation of the Santa Fe El Capitan train when it was still around before the late 1980s and AmTrak took over all Passenger Rail Traffic. This model does need some adjustments here and their such as the coach needs passenger figures installed, LEDs, and the details on the outside need as well installing PWRS Magna Lock air hoses. Well Anyways enjoy the video and comment, smash the like button and subscribe.
Here is another SDF40-2 from my collection this one was also made by Athearn Trains part of their genesis line of premium trains This model version features the Notched Nose for train crews to board the locomotive more easily. this model repents this former Amtrak unit when it was traded for switchers by the Santa Fe the units eventually had been modified again by the Santa Fe with Notched noses that are not present on this model but I do have one that does that will be on the next video. The Santa Fe took ownership of 18 of these units from Amtrak they are former SDP40F known as rail breakers due to the steam generator that was installed to keep the passenger cars heated when they where still using old passenger cars from 1940s to 1980s which then had been replaced all together and Amtrak had new engines that where equipped with H.E.P. Head End Power. This H.E.P. which utilized electrical power instead of steam was more efficient another nail in the coffin for these SDP40Fs before Santa Fe got a hold of 18 of these units and started to modify these units and took the Steam generator out and filled it with cement to keep the weight even at the back. The SDF40-2s as they were re-designated where Cowl body designed these units where designed to look like the FP45s of the Santa Fe so these units where right at home with the Santa Fe and served their career as useful Freight engines. The locomotive had a 645E 16 cylinders rather than 20 cylinders which is not that powerful for freight diesels but hey I don't know what Santa Fe was thinking so I can't really speak for them on that.

This model has some damage in it and out of it so I have to send it in for repairs. which sucks but that's what happen you don't know what your doing.
Here is my Santa Fe SDF40-2 #5254 Early Ho scale model this model repents this former Amtrak unit when it was traded for switchers by the Santa Fe the units eventually had been modified again by the Santa Fe with Notched noses that are not present on this model but I do have one that does that will be on the next video.

Here is one of my other steam locomotives made by Bachmann Trains in (1:87) Ho scale This one has DCC On Board and LEDs no sound. I installed a train crew and installed Kadee 158 Couplers which are American Made and full metal so yay they last longer. I tried to find a real picture of the locomotive itself but I couldn't I did find a locomotive with a similar number but it was not the same locomotive well anyways thank you for watching.

Here is a update to the SD75M Santa Fe #226 locomotive Ho scale project. The locomotive is undergoing overhaul meaning it's getting a new sound decoder, LEDS for headlights, ditch lights, as well as exterior details for the SD75m like the uncoupling cut lever and other parts as such. The recent parts added to the locomotive is the headlight lens for the LEDs to be attached to it. please enjoy the video please comment, smash the like button, and subscribe.
Here is a another video on my Ho scale (1:87) scale down version of the real thing. This locomotive was made by Atlas in Ho scale the real locomotive was made by the EMD Electro Motive Division. The SD24 was not the best seller due to some short comings with some mechanical problems as far as I remember I will tweak this if I find out more. The SD24 was a another road switcher that was need to move general good across the rails but it saw modest sales the only railroad that owned a large portion of these locomotives was the A.T.&S.F or better known as the Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Railroad 80 of these locomotives all them where numbered class of 900-979 my model I put the numbers of 929 as you can see here in the video and thumbnail pic of the video. well enough of my talking enjoy the video and please comment, smash the like button, and subscribe to the channel.
Here is my Ho scale ALCO RSD 15 Santa Fe Zebra Stripe Paint Scheme from Broadway limited imports. This is a scale down version of the real thing Santa Fe bought 50 of these locomotives around the 1970s they pretty much got rid of them. The Santa Fe Rarely bought from ALCO which it's full name is the American Locomotive Comp due to it's unreliable locomotives but when The Santa Fe saw these locomotives and gave them a try they took off with the Santa Fe again they bought 50 of these units all numbered 800-849.

Okay a little about what I do. I do a lot of customizing when it comes to my Model Trains in Ho scale which is a (1:87) scale which is half of O scale. When I mean customizing I do LED installments to the model and new Decoders whether it be with sound or not. I also do Airsoft when I'm out and about in Airsoft arenas for those that know what that is for those who don't think of it as paintball. That's pretty much it.
