Now, on that North Coast Limited or the Empire Builder, depending on where you are geographically (South of St. Paul) you might want to put an E7 or E8/9 A-B in Burlington Route livery on the head end! ;)

Right now, I don't have the HO layout anywhere near finished, or I'd take a photo or two, of a couple of my passenger trains. I'm working on a BN version of the Empire Builder, as my Dad got me an AHM BN Vista Dome car, when I was about 10 years old. I've picked up a few BN green/hockey stick cars over the last 20 years, but no motive power, which I'm planning will be F units. Also have the orange/green version in Mantua aluminum cars, which aren't right, or even close, but in my modeling universe, they'll run around the track, well enough. Working on building a shorty version of the El Capitan, with some Flieschmann cars from the 60's. Flanges are very deep, and couplers need some swapping, but will go nicely with my 2 SF F units. Also have the BLI Blue Bird, with a P2K E8. Been thinking about putting on the list a 4-5 car NH Comet, as I like the styling of it. Never got into the Aerotrain, as I met someone who rode it, many years ago on the PRR, and they said it was made up of basically buses. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
