Nice! If I ever get my Lionel O-Scale layout up and running again, I'll have to remember that! (well, except mine has steep curved grades and a tunnel that not all of my engines can go through so it might fall off) There's a lot you can transfer between O-scaling and these helis. The oil I use on and reccomend for the helis is oil for O-Scale trains, a lot of the building supplies like polystyrene sheets are from O-Scale modeling.


I was out at Strasburg back in 07. Wonderful place. Loved it there. If the East Broad Top ever re-opens, you should come out there some time. All original 3' Narrow Guage line, just absolutely beautiful ride throughthe Huntingdon County countryside. I volunteer with the FEBT out there when I can, and we're really trying to save the place. Lots of building work done and to be done, but it's a long way from where it was 10 years ago when it was in just sad shape. Heck, come out for a work weekend sometime, you'll see what all-original railroading's like, even if they can't move any of the equipment.

My yellow 107 gets a ride! The Chesapeake and Ohio

flatcar is behind a Santa Fe (SF!) GP-20 Diesel engine

with the caboose in tow. The train in the background

is the Strasburg Railroad set, modeled after the real

short-line railroad, now a tourist attraction here in

Lancaster, PA. All are Lionel O-scale and the heli

fits in perfectly, now if I can just land it on a moving train!
