Did I see a Santa Fe Blue & Yellow GE setting near Barn 4 a couple of weeks ago? If so, what is the story on that unit?

i think what he means is to give the Executive units some detailing while retaining the Executive Colors, because if you haven't noticed, some of the [...]

BN1 and BN2 represent the executive fleet well on their own, BN3 was used far less and was 9919 much longer. Another CBQ E unit is a bit excessive at [...]

Will there be a rain date just in case?


Raphael about Freight Car Update
Tue, 05-09-2017 00:35
