Mattel Disney Planes Fire & Rescue: More Muir the Train Preview

More previews of Muir. First pics went up last week. Nothing really too new in these photos but it’s interesting in that the passenger car doors slides all the way open.

While it seemed likely the passenger train portion detached, it’s nice to see it AND it’s interesting there’s a second hook/coupler to attach more rail cars.



Now available at Amazon.

    I bought a Lionel O-scale tender online and it fits great! It was green and had rubber “logs” in the back but took the logs out and spray painted black….painted the edges with red and gold like in movie and used a decal sticker on side to say Piston Peak Railway, looks great! Bring on the passenger cars now!!! Thanks for those that helped me with what scale I should get!

    (MET: Send us a pic!)

  • John says:

    Second picture from the top seems to be an older prototype. Passenger car has fewer side windows, no “PISTON PEAK RAILWAY” lettering, locomotive has a different red roof edge. To model the movie Muir, one’d need a tender and four cars.

  • John says:

    If this is a carrying case, the units are probably closest to ‘G’ scale. Right after Christmas there should be a lot of closeout “Christmas trains” that might yield a decent tender as well as better looking passenger cars.

    • Mack_me_Bucko says:

      I’m going to guess six Cars inside, two wide by three long, in which case maybe a foot long at most for the passenger cars — which would give one roughly a 1:64 “S scale” train. If it fits eight, 2 x 4 it would be around 1:48 “O scale’.

      A “G scale” car could hold roughly 30 diecasts if made to proper scale.

      (For the record, the pattern of these passenger cars looks very much like those built for the Cumbres & Toltec in CO/NM back in the 1980’s, which are widely regarded as being butt-ugly, and have slowly been replaced as funds permit).

      (MET: If I had to guess, I think it should fit 6 “sedan” CARS).

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    As noted in the other thread, once I get some hard dimensions, I can recommend several tenders from the world of model railroading, which is nominally my day job.

      Good evening Mack_Me_Bucko,

      I have a question for you…I have a Lionel Train Set that I received when I was 6-7…let’s just say it’s an antique.Original box but, as you would expect…beat up!

      LIONEL “# 19530 Steam Type Freight with Headlight”
      ….contains Steel tracks and “Multivolt Toy Transformer” to make train go forward / backwards and control speed.
      Engine with light and when you placed a “Special Powder” in the smoke stack it would produce smoke!.
      Also has a coal tender, ” Red Caboose – Lionel Line 6167″, Red “Flatbed” and a Black “Container Box” on which you can read “LEHIGH VALLEY L.V.25000 Capy LD LMT”.
      I could set it up in a figure 8 or an oval track…
      Now, MANY years have passed, and I am trying to get it to run again…
      …When I plug in the transformer and “touch” the 2 wires leading from the transformer together there is still electricity (sparks)…but I cannot get engine to go.
      Tracks all steel and are “male / “female three pronged to attach to one another
      Your feedback would be greatly appreaciated.

      e-mail me at rinoco (at) nb (dot) sympatico (dot) ca if you get a chance.

    Im glad to see hooks because I will inevitably be buying three or four of these sets and just giving away the engine, Muir, so that I can have more than one passenger car in tow.

    Maybe we can get a coal tender and more passenger cars? Wonder if they fit on Thomas the Tank Engine tracks?
