Big model trains running inside my small house
Is my train collection too large for my house? Nevermind, I already know the answer. The obvious next step will be to move the whole thing outdoors.
This is a collection of G-scale model railroad trains from LGB and Piko. It starts with a LGB 25554 White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad diesel locomotive pulling freight cars. Next, there’s a LGB 21576 Santa Fe diesel locomotive pulling passenger cars. Finally, a Piko 38212 AT&SF steam locomotive provides some pretty cool steam train sounds! I don’t know what the deal is with the headlight on that locomotive… it seems to randomly go on and off.
The operation of multiple trains on the same layout is made easy due to DCC – digital command control – which allows you to control each train individually. This includes changing speed and operating the horn and bell of each train. It’s a fun hobby!
What you see in this video was the way my train layout was in early 2015. About a year later, I still hadn’t stepped up to an outdoor layout… but I came up with a much more elaborate layout for inside the house. Check it out at https://youtu.be/MMVZxWKB-Ls
