    Diesels cuz electrics arn't loud enough and steam is way to old school!!! Plus I have never figured out how to drive those damned hot water makers anyhow. Guess I am just a yungin' as far as you guys are concered...

    Default why

    Steam.... Simply because diesel is so damned boring to look at and simple to operate

    Nothing like hearing or seeing a pair of C44-9W's notching up on a heavy train with black smoke pouring out and the FDL-16 absolutly screaming to the heavens :D

    I do also enjoy the odd EMD too! ;)

    No options listed for me. Steam, diesel, electrics, trollies, big ones, small ones, articulated, single .. just give me a good one on a good route and nothing else much matters ;-) Some of us are very hard to please :9

    Robert, while I have you here... :-)

    I have an OT question (OT to this thread), regarding ADFRR V3. I LOVE your route... it's absolutely fantastic, but is it supposed to take that long to load? When I have ADFRR active, it easily takes me three times longer than usual to get to the main menu screen from startup. Is it because it is a really big route? Or is there something wrong with my install of it?

    Default Diesel

    Diesels for me, never saw steam or electrics. When I was a kid I'd go to work with my Dad sometimes and the diesels would shake the yard office when they went by, the big machines still float my boat. :)
