    What is this 'book' thing you refer to?

    What do you mean ugly...it looks almost identical to it's later incarnation, the PA-1. Change the headlight and add some grills on the side and it's the same!

    I like the logo of 3 and 8, but I like the paint of 5 (without the large road numbers). It's the Green Vally RR, it really should have green as one of the colors, not blue or orange (IMHO).
