Display first, operation later. It needs to be watertight to be on display with the streamliners in yard 5, then we can start working on putting the [...]

Hello David S We would love to have the Silver Pony in operation. At this time the coach dept does not have enough volunteers and $ to complete [...]

On display? No plans for it to ever become operational? I know it wouldn't exactly "fit in" with the heavyweights, but I bet it would be very popular [...]

We have 3 "modernized" Heavyweights, IC 2804, GTW 5316, and UP 501. UP 501 is used for the Terror on the Railroad event, GTW 5316 needs some major [...]

If we were to go after any lightweight coaches, they would either be junk or cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Postwar lightweights [...]

Hello Ted, Our info from CB&Q Hist Society confirms that the "bag" was once an RPO and was converted to a baggage car. Please help the cause by [...]
