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.

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.

Here is my Ho scale Broadway limited Imports Santa Fe 4-8-4 Northern Number 3751 this steam locomotive is still around and undergoing it's Federal Railroad Administration Boiler Re-Certification for 15 years. Anyways this model represents the perfect example of premium modeling at it's finest. I Hope you enjoy the video please comment, subscribe, and share the video.
Hi everyone this locomotive is my very first steam locomotive with DCC and Sound and it's from Broadway limited Imports it is part of their Paragon 2 series not 3 just 2. well anyways lets get down to the info here on this locomotive The 2-10-2 was originally called the Santa Fe Type in the Railroad names Honor The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway or for short the A.T.&S.F. or even common called the Santa Fe Railroad. The Santa Fe was the largest owner of 4-8-4 northerns as well as the 2-10-2s and 2-10-4s known as the Texas types when ran steam until the diesels took over in 1957 for the Railroad. A lot of these historical artifacts are still around so if see one give a nice donation. whoa need to get back on topic here anyways This is a Ho scale (1:87) scale of the real thing the only surviving 2-10-2 is number 940 of the A.T.&S.F. now the 2-10-2 to get back on topic is equipped with synchronized smoke so every time the driving rods move the smoke comes out the funnel the model industry is heading the right directions for this to happen. This model though does not come with a back up light the other road numbers did due to historical accuracy. I also made some modifactions of my own like installing the PWRS magna lock air hoses, and I will be installing some more leds such as the red back up light. I need to order a replacement cab from BLI and hope they still have one. will see what else I need to do.
The Santa Fe Railroad always had many different types of locomotives when it was still around The G.E. Dash 8-40BW was no exception. This model is made from the Atlas Model Train company I don't know if they are still making this I think they stopped productions. I did some modification on this loco I got this at the Costa Mesa Train Show that is coming up next Feb. 8 2019 which I will attend. The mods I did where adding the numbers this unit was unnumbered and I gave the number 550 to it. I also gave it PWRS magna lock air hoses as well as starting to install LEDs I need to figure out how to added sound or non sound will see it's a project that's on hold.

Here I'm starting another project one where I am turning a B.N.S.F. SD70ace locomotive into a Santa Fe Red and Silver Warbonnet paint scheme.
No this will not be a B.N.S.F. heritage unit in case people where wondering. this will be a Santa Fe locomotive by the time I'm done with it. Yes this is in Ho scale (1:87) a scale down version of the real thing.
Okay so sometimes my Santa Fe 2-10-2 #3890 steam locomotive has some problems with the smoke unit not working and stuff I think the thing is dying but I can order a new smoke unit entirely for it so I don't mind it.
Here is short video on my Santa Fe Ho scale Locomotives with LEDs both factory and customs installed. The Custom installed LEDs are on the Athearn Genesis FP45 locomotives in the Red And Silver warbonnet paint schemes. There is one model that was having some issues but I manged to fix that for now I might have to order a new front Truck to replace the one that broke. Well anyways I hope you enjoy the video.

Here you see how to clean Ho scale model Train locomotive wheels when they get dirty and can't run smoothly when power is online in the tracks.
I used My Ho scale (1:87) Santa Fe 3751 4-8-4 northern by Broadway limited imports or BLI for short To Demonstrate how cleaning is done. Just in case people get confused the Real one that is in Los Angeles is made from the Baldwin locomotive works. I hope this video provides a way for you to better care for your model trains.

The list of what you will need is Labelle oil 107.
Trix Wheel cleaners or some other type of wheel cleaning device.
Here you see me installing Manga Lock air hoses from Pacific Western Rail Systems a real great new product making train operations more realistic. This product basically mimics air hoses connecting and disconnecting via magnets this is a product made in Canada. They also make M.U. Cables seen on diesel locomotives and uses magnets to connect them here is a video link and website link to show you where to get this product and how to install it.

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.
