    We have a fun thread over on the prototype side of things in which everyone has been posting photos of railroad equipment consecutively numbered, starting with #1 to as high as they can go.

    Well why should we let them have all the fun!! :D :D

    Lets start counting with Models! My lowest numbered model is 7, so I'll wait till then, but does anyone want to start us off with #1? or perhaps even "0"? :D :D

    Good idea. I had forgotten about the prototype thread. We can always use a decal if we need a number.

    That would be interesting if someone were to model a sequential run of cars being transferred from a factory to the owning railroad. I saw a string of about 50 clean non-weathered, obviously new covered hoppers with all numbers included, though not in sequential order for some reason, at the rear of a CSX mixed-merchandise train. I have no memory of the reporting marks because it was about 10 years ago, but it was surprising to see.

    Back in Nebraska there was a coal route to a power plant near where I lived. I remember seeing sequential coal hoppers all the time and assume such unit trains remain sequential straight from the factory for a long time since they all run the same routine.


    Come on, I know some of you have units numbered "1" out there! :D
    Who's gonna get #1 posted first?? :D :D

    Oops!

    Didn't Kato make a #6 Union Pacific SD45 in the renumber series?

    [edit] I just checked. That was #9.

    Yay! We got #6! I have 7, 8, and 9, as well as a fake #10!


    My Ultimate 4-4-0 lettered TBC 10, celebrating 10 years of TrainBoard.com, pulls UP 9, CP 8, UP 7, and ATSF 999628.

    Since TBC 10 is a Photoshopped lettering, anyone who has a true #10, feel free to post. :D

    In fact, maybe we should make it a rule that anyone who missed their opportunity to post a # may do so, so long as it hasn't been more than say 20#s ago? :)

    Here are better views of UP 7, CP 8, and UP 9, so everyone knows I'm not cheating. ;)
