    Will it include Argo Guthrie’s “Riding on the City of New Orleans...I’ll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.”.

    Nice work on both the IC and B&O trains, Rick.
    I must ask, have you and Gaetan ever kicked around the idea of modelling any current dinner or excursion trains, using the old F/E/PA units, and cars you've modeled for other fallen flags?
    It would be a neat synergy of old and modern, and I'd bet people would enjoy running some excursions.

    Penned by the late, great Steve Goodman... I will be humming along throughout the modeling process

    Interesting idea, Neill. Maybe I could do the modern day Cape Cod rail excursion train, would give me an excuse to create my own FL9!

    It will be dirt easy to replace the IC logos with Iowa Pacific, Neil.

    True, especially since I have some pics of that unit. Now what could one drag behind it?

    You might like this better. I wasn't happy with the colors, and some of the striping was off... Also forgot the lower headlight! Still more tweaking to be done, but I think this is an improvement.

    Oh yes, I really like how the yellow stripes pop against the chocolate body color.
