    I think you're getting warmer, Moose2013. But I did get in a bidding war once on a trio of custom SP&S MT cabeese. Bowed out when the price went above $300. (That's when my "It's iust plastic"...

    I'm going to pick a nit here. I see several locations where you've planned for diamond crossovers. Railroads eschew those except in space-challenged terminals. They add more to maintenance,...

    The Atlas S-2 comes in UP colors (UP had them); the paint scheme might be 1960s-ish.
