MTH/Lionel Standard Gauge State Set with Double-Headed #381E Electric Locomotives

In the previous video, I showed the complete State Set being hauled by a PS2 #381E from MTH under DCS control.  I also have the PS1 version which, as with the locomotive it reproduces, runs in conventional mode from the transformer.  Contrary to popular belief, you CAN double-head PS1 and PS2 locomotives, so long as they are as well matched as these two are.  You have to run them conventionally, and it can be a trifle tricky, but it can be done.  As this video shows!  Smile Here's the complete set of six State cars being hauled by not one, but two #381E electric locomotives.  You're looking at over thirteen feet of train running on my ceiling layout.  Enjoy!  Smile
