If you are the type of model railroader who has a sweet tooth and likes to assemble your own train sets, then Lionel has the ingredients with their candy themed cars. You can create a very tasty and fascinating freight train set. Learn how in the following paragraphs.
Leading the way for your Lionel o scale freight train could be many of their o scale diesel engines. For our freight train set, we have selected the very familiar looking Burlington Northern Santa Fe dash nine diesel locomotive which has two Pullmor motors, magne traction and ditch lights. The color scheme is the orange side with BNSF printed on the side in yellow letters. The wheels are a silver color. This o scale diesel engine is perfect to pull our delicious freight train.
On to the tasty part of this train. We have something for everyone here starting with a Hershey's Milk Duds hopper that is yellow and has the Hershey's logo on the top left with Milk Duds printed on the side in brown outlined in white and red. Who wouldn't like some Milk Duds?
If you are more of a candy bar person, the second car of your Lionel o scale freight train set is a Mr. Goodbar candy bar. Just looking at this reefer makes you want a candy bar.
To add some real color to this train, we can introduce to tank cars. The first one is a Bubble Yum tank car in a bright pink color with the Bubble Yum logo printed on near the top of the Lionel o scale tank car. Next is a bright blue Jolly Rancher tank car which has several different types of fruits printed on it with Jolly Rancher printed on the side. These two festive cars will spruce up your set considerably.
Who doesn't like York peppermint patties or Hershey's kisses? These are the last two cars of your Lionel o scale freight set. The York Peppermint Patty car is a reefer and it has "Get the Sensation" in white letters with an orange background printed on the side of the car. You also have the Hershey's logo and York logo prominent on this car. The reefer has a blue roof and will definitely add to your train. The Hershey's kiss reefer is an interesting o scale train car as it is brown with a silver roof and both ends are silver too. The Hershey's kiss design is in two places and will make you hungry looking at them.
If you make this o scale train set, you will definitely turn a few heads and probably get many comments. Have fun creating your Lionel o scale freight train set with these various candy cars and happy model railroading.
