    And yes, all of those RDLs are from Tiger Trains.

    Fonda Johnstown and Gloversville did get an RS-2 and 3 under Delaware Otsego control but the RS-2 100 never received the FJ&G orange paint scheme... until this weekend!

    Very crazy idea in my alternate universe - Full Bucket Auto Carrier. After creation of Auto-Train Corporation, Full Bucket Line and Missouri Pacific creates first North American transcontinental passenger train with possibility of automobiles transportation - Full Bucket Auto Carrier. Passengers could send our automobiles from St. Louis, Little Rock, Dallas and New Orleans (extra train from New Orleans to Marshall TX) to Los Angeles, afterwards PRR begins our auto carrier from Philadelphia to St. Louis with transfer of autotracks to Full Bucket Auto Carrier.

    Now Full Bucket Auto Carrier usually operates by two AC4400CW or C44-9W, after few cars with baggage and express cargo locates transition Superliner car, 5 coaches, 10 sleepers, lounge, dining car and 25 autotracks (specifically on this train):











    Question to FBL fans - where do you think can locates line between Frampton and Fort Fairfax? With which real railroads FBL can cooperate?

    The actual coordinates in the route places it in Nevada, with the Fort Fairfax line parallel with US50. But it can be anywhere west, just use your imagination!

    What everyone else is saying pretty much. What's so nice about it is that it's so generic just about anything west of the Mississippi and south of Yellowstone would fit. I always followed The Full Bucketniers' take on the FBL, with SP (and FBL just because) running from Fort Fairfax to Lake Hurst. Now I'm not sure if it's FBL/UP or just FBL. I do have BNSF claiming trackage rights on the FBL from Frampton to Mount Oliver (or is it FBL running on the BNSF? I don't know anymore.)

    Good seeing you around here, Bob! Here's FBL 1225 dashing through the snow. Thanks so much for helping me find where the numberplate is mapped on this beauty.

    I decided to make FBL map and took as a basis ATSF map with approximate location of lines:


    FBL double track mainline: Alamosa - Gallup - Mount Oliver - Frampton -Phoenix - Brawley - Los Angeles, southern singletrack mainline: Lake Hurst - Fort Fairfax - Socorro - Carrizozo - Carlsbad - Odessa.

    Earlier in the USA existed Missouri Pacific Railroad, Texas and Paci and St. Louis and San Franciso Railroad - in their names established idea of transcontinental railroad construction, but these railroads never completed our lines to Pacific ocean. In my "Alternate Universe" FBL could build our tracks to Pacific ocean and made a serious competition for ATSF and SP. Likely FBL initially was project of "Gould Empire" for connect the MP and DRGW with Los Angeles and San Diego. Henceforth Missouri Pacific cooperating with FBL could have our transcontinental passenger trains from St. Louis to Los Angeles - "California Eagle" via Little Rock, Dallas, Odessa, Carlsbad and Fort Fairfax and "Los Angeles Eagle" via Kansas City, Pueblo, Alamosa and Mount Oliver. FBL also operate our transcontinental trains alternately with MP trains, perhaps FRISCO also creates our transcontinental passenger train going on FBL tracks.

    FBL captured my imagination, once I even made train schedule diagram for this MSTS route, although something I’d change now:


    Another one train - postal-baggage train from St. Louis to Los Angeles via Pueblo and Mount Oliver for delivery of mail and express cargo. In this train lot of cars of other railroads, using this train possible delivery from Eastern and Midwest railroads to Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and towns on FBL tracks:
