    Re:Via Rail Colors F40PH

    Pilots and snow plows differ according to period as well.

    Also, sorry, I made a mistake with the AC unit, it appears that most don't have AC.

    Most of my wagons are Bachmann or Lifelike, with some random second hand atlas, MTL, or Kato (some japanese wagons) thrown in the mix. Once...
