    If by the 'racetrack' you are referring to the Burlington route between Chicago and Galesburg, that is a relatively recent development for Amtrak. Certainly, back in 1977 when I rode the Southwest...

    Steve,

    I see that Curry's / PC World have a Seagate equivalent for £132, also via ebay, so the one ou have quoted is not that dramatically out of line.

    These even formed the basis of the 1300+ 141R class locos built for SNCF just after the war. A lot of differences, though, so that would be a whole different model!

    Actually, make that 'nearly' identical to the other CZ cars. I don't know what the differences were, but the PRR car was built to plan 9520 whilst the Q, DRGW and WP 10/6s were built to plan 9509. ...

    The GP40's which got an orange 'C' were 3170 to 3186.

    The scheme was also applied to 5585, an ex-New Haven RS3 (oh, the indignity of it)!

    The GP35's which had a red 'P' were

    I can't say for sure, but it might have been because the Gs were mixed traffic locos (British speak for freight and passenger). In the same way, only 4 of the boiler fitted F units were Tuscan. ...

    The New Haven was indeed special, as was it's catenery. I don't think that anybody else used the 'tri-angular' form, not just in the US but in the world. Then, of course, the motive power was all...

    Version 2 of the SLI/TS Seligman route comes in two flavours. One is for Santa Fe, the other for BNSF.

    'atsf_seligman' is the Santa Fe version. Perhaps the activities are for the BNSF version?
