While Steven's primary interests are in HO-scale Pennsy steam and Pittsburgh steel mills, Standard gauge reproductions deliver a wonderful diversion from scale modeling.  The clinic starts with a brief history of Lionel standard gauge production from 1906 to about 1940.  The presentation then switches to the MTH/Lionel reproductions made from 2009 to 2019.  Externally, they are perfect copies of the originals. Internally, these trains are equipped with loads of new technology: they have can motors, sound, smoke, and run on DCS/WiFi.  The trains illustrated in the clinic can be viewed on a layout tour.
