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. Well anyways please enjoy the video and Comment, Smash the Like button, and subscribe.
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 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.
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 here you see my installing Magna lock air hoses from Pacific Western Rail Systems on my Broadway limited Santa Fe 2-10-2 #3890 Ho scale Steam locomotive. Keep in mind I did not do any editing on this due to it taking to much time.

Here is another locomotive review this one is from Atlas Trains they make Ho scale, N scale, and O scale I believe I will have to check again to be sure. Anyways this is a rare paint scheme for the Santa Fe as well it did not stay around for long before Santa Fe started going back to warbonnet and yellow or blue bonnet paint schemes. This paint scheme is refereed to as Pinstripe paint scheme. I only have 1 real picture of the real 3524 and did have a snow plow and beacon light. The Beacon light and snow plow are added parts that came with it when I purchased it from the Costa Mesa Train show in march of this year.

Here you all go part 2 of this awesome locomotive in Ho scale overhaul. here is the link for these parts https://www.pwrs.ca/announcements/view.php?ID=10310 You will need to set up an account with them first even though you can purchase it right off the bat that's because it's customs if your ordering from the U.S.A. other countries you should check your shipping laws to your country if you order from another country.

Here in this video I talk about the type of tracks I use for my model trains I don't have a layout yet. I hope to soon I tried to do less editing on these videos so I don't have to keep doing editing. Here is Ho scale (1:87) Kato Unitrack which are great tracks to own for both semi or permanent layout.

Here you see an Athearn Trains part of there premium Genesis model Ho (1:87) scale down version of the real thing. This is a SD45-2 EMD locomotive as described on the box from Athearn Trains. the only thing I'm dissapointed in is that the locomotive did not come with windshield wipers but that can be separately installed so it's not that big of a deal.
Here you will see a lot of my FP45 clips all together in one these are made by Athearn Trains they are best known for these premium line diesels in Ho scale for such great details. I have installed new LEDs in these locos as well as new tsunami2 EMD 2 sound decoders. Please enjoy the video.

Here is my Santa Fe SD45-2 Kodachrome 5809 Manufactured By Athearn Trains part of their Genesis line which is considered premium item. This is Ho scale (1:87) a Scale down version of the Real thing. This still has Tsunami 1 and incandescent bulbs so those will be replaced with Tsunami 2 EMD 2 and LEDs. Here is a little history on the Paintshceme itself which is again called Kodachrome in the 1980s the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (ATSF or SF) and the Southern Pacific Transportation company (SP) attempted a merger. it began with the of holding companies Santa Fe and Southern Pacific on December 23, 1983 to form the Santa Fe Southern Pacific Corporation (SFSP). However these companies painted these locomotives in there fleets with this paint schemes to fast at the time companies thought when the merger was approved they would add SF on the SP locomotives and the SP on the SF locomotives vice a versa. Anyways The ICC or known as the Interstate Commerce Commission on July 24, 1986 who ruled that such a merger included too many duplicate routes and was therefore monopolistic. The Commission Denied SFSP's Appeal again in a 4-1 vote on June 30, 1987 The Railroad went to court but lost the suit. The railroads had no choice but to not do the merger and had repainted there locomotives in their original paint schemes. Then the Mid 1990s rolled around Santa Fe Merged with The Burlington Northern Railroad thus forming the BNSF in 1995-1996 the Railroads merged and started at first patching the new marking of B.N.S.F on the locomotives in the fleet then eventually in my opinion painted there newer locomotives in the horrible looking orange paint schemes ewww. well anyways I hope you enjoy this short video.

Here is my Athearn Genesis line SD45-2 Locomotive 5701 in Ho scale (1:87) a more smaller version of the real thing which is no longer in existence due to Merger and the birthday of America past so the paint scheme stay around for a little of a year I think according to all my research I will have to go back and make sure to put the date on here when I get that info. There were only 5 of these locomotives painted like this in the Santa Fe Era 5700, 5701, 5702, 5703, 5704. those where the only ones from the Santa Fe that received this paint job on strobe lights anyways enough about that just sit back and enjoy the video.
Here is a video of an awesome Train show in Costa Mesa CA. Here in this video you will see tons of different model train layouts and different Scales of Model Trains as well sit back and enjoy I do apologize in advance for the Camera being so shaky. Here is a link to show you all when the next train show will be http://greattrainshow.com/ Model Train shows like this are your wallets best friends but be sure to save a lot of money to get the maximum haul that you can I recommend that you start saving at least $400.00s for a start then keep start saving more and more the more you go.
Okay here is how to do Maintenance on a Bachmann Ho Scale 1:87 scale Locomotive you have to do this every so often with the right stuff to make your models last longer. For this you will need Labelle 107 Oil Synthetic light motor oil medium weight. screw driver and the instructions if you don't have that watch the video it will help you understand how to do this.
Here is one of my latest Model Train projects it's a overhaul and review. This is a SD75M from Athearn Trains from it's Genesis line now it's going to receive LEDs and sound and much more. now again this is an Ho scale Model meaning it's 1:87 scale size of the real thing. a lot of these units are getting scrapped which sucks because a lot of them don't go to Museums. and a lot of these units were owned by the A.T.S.F. Railroad or Santa Fe for short which is now considered a fallen flag since the company merged with the B.N. Railroad which is now the B.N.S.F Railroad which I don't like at all because of the horrible Orange Paint job. Well anyways Please enjoy the video and Hit that Like button subscribe button and please share the video.
Here I do a Review of my Athearn Genesis in Ho scale My model Represents The (Fallen Flag) Railroad Terminology meaning the Railroad No longer exist. The Santa Fe Railroad is rich with history go look it up The A.T.S.F. which in short is for Santa Fe. This version of the FP45 from the Santa Fe Railroad was built for the specific purpose of Passenger Service before Amtrak took over all Passenger routes of all railroads in the 1980s. The Santa Fe FP45 #101 is equipped with MARs lights and painted the old F unit style text on the side of the side of the locomotive.
here is my 3751 Santa Fe steam locomotive in Ho scale (1:87) running. The Santa Fe 3751 4-8-4 Northern Type locomotive in this video is a scale down version of real locomotive that's at LA union station terminal for her 15 year boiler recertification right now. here is the link http://www.sbrhs.org/ and here is another link to another locomotive that is same type but that is a 2900 class locomotive http://nmslrhs.org/ the ATSF 2926 steam locomotive please donate to these sites if you can.
Here is my Santa Fe 3890 2-10-2 Ho scale (1:87) which is half the scale of O scale now Broadway limited imports made this locomotive they are well known for making premium grade model train locomotives such as steam locomotives. now a lot of our model trains are made in china and frankly that needs to change I want to start seeing the model trains be made in America I'm tired of hearing the excuses that prevent that from Happening.
Here is my Santa Fe FP45s being test run after sitting in storage for a while you have to run them every so often or they lubrication oil will start to solidify over time you don't want to let that happen so run them whenever you can and clean the gears when it's time.
Here is a video on How to Change plastic s***** couplers to Kadees that are All out American Made. The Couplers will be changing into are on a Ho scale Athearn Genesis locomotive. The Athearn Genesis line of locomotives are a premium line of Ho scale locomotives to have in your model train collection.
Here is some of my model trains in Ho scale running. This is my first time uploading to bitchute please be respectful and No hating. In this Video you see my Broadway Limited Imports Santa Fe 2-10-2 #3890 and Santa Fe 4-8-4 3751 in Ho scale. these are awesome models. Enjoy The videos.
