Default Large Scale Animation

I'm sure many members here are familiar with Lionel O-Gauge animation.

There is a little bit of that now moving into G-Gauge.
I remember the stock car with the horses' bobbing heads, also the cows - Marklin in I-Gauge has a loco where the loco engineer turns in the cab to always face in the direction the loco is moving and now Piko, with their new German BR50 steam locomotive which was just shipped in Europe a week or so ago, the coal in the tender is slowly "used up" depending on the distance and speed the loco has run.
Short video clip here by one of the German Large Scale magazines

LGB made 4 action cars where the axle drove a gear. There was a dinosaur and dumbo car and a porpoise and nemo car. Plus the exploding dynamite car.
For automation there is the dump car (40610) and hot metal car (40560). I converted both to digital instead of using LGB's special track.

Nobody but me has animation like "Willie the Wonder Horse" on the T&LB.

Then of course there's Han's who pushes blocks of ice into the the beer reefers and the dancing "low rider car" mounted on a flat car, both of which can do their thing while in a moving consist.
