Fife pup gifted me a new Apple iPad. Here's my first video effort.

Fife, those videos are great! Hard to believe that General can pull so many cars!

I also have a little story about a General set I saw a few years back:

There was a train store I used to frequent, and many Postwar Lionel and Flyer engines I have came from there. Unfortunately, this store is now gone.

Anyway, one day I went in, and because of my purchasing habits, was escorted over to a Lionel General set. Immaculate condition of the trains and box. I believe the box was gray, or gray and red. When I asked the price : $600.  Couldn't get past that in my mind....

 

Now, when I remember what I saw, I think

" Yeah, it was expensive....

....but...."

Oh wow!  Fifedog's layout brought to life!  How cool is that?

Dittos to what Paul said, I didn't think a Lionel General could pull like that!

Flint/Paul - When the track is level, the Lionel generals are capable. But any grade, fugetabowdit. All 4 lines are as close to 0% as I could make them.
Penny - I was immediately impressed with the picture quality of the iPad.
