    i was curious as to what everyone on here has on their locomotive roster. On my HO scale Leelanau County Railway i have 2 GP7', 1
    SW1000, 1 SW1500, 1 44 tonner, 1 low boiler 4-6-0, 1 USRA 0-8-0, 1 SW1000M (SW1000 underframe, GP7 hood and SW7 cab) and 1 2-10-0 russian decapod. I may add an athearn CF7 (topeka style cab)

    I have on my freelanced NYC: 2 streamlined Hudson 4-6-4's, 2 more 4-6-4's, a Baldwin 4-6-0, an 0-6-0, a GP7, an F3 A+B, an E8/9, an SW7, an S1, and a 4-8-4 Niagara.......
    My favorite is the 4-6-0....nice size for my layout and the most detailed of all except for the 0-6-0....

    Enough motive power to run a train.

    C&O Steam: Mountain by Bachman, 2-6-6-6 Allegheny; 2-6-6-2 H-5, 2-8-0 Consolidation; 0-8-0 switcher, and a 2-8-4 Berkshire

    C&O Diesels: (2) RS-1's, (1) RSD 4/5; a set of A-B-A F7's; (1) E7; 5 FP-7A's and (3) FP-7B's; (5) GP7's; (3) GP9's; (2)AS-616's; (2) BL2's

    NON C&O's: (1)Virginian Trainmasater; (1) ERIE GP7

    My Goal is to get more Virginian engines since I have an interchange track w/ the Virginian. I also have a video made from a mid 50's reel that shows extensive work at a WV mine being worked by both C&O and NYC engines. Interesting. I really didn't know those two worked common mines. Guess it was more common than we thought.

    All of my steamers have sound of various makes. QSI, LokSound, and Soundtraxx. About 40% of my diesels have sound. I just sent one of my AS616's off to have sound put in the thing by an "installer". My first time sending one out. Usually I do it, but this engine had no space and required some extensive milling.

    Thats likely on the NF&G! (Nicholas, Fayette, & Greenbrier Railroad) A coal and Lumber hauling jointly owned line by the C&O and NYC, it was a giant loop, it began at the NYC/C&O interchange yard at Gauley bridge and extended to Meadow Creek on the New River sub, it was a giant oval, the NYC and C&O shared operations and even pooled power between Gauley and Rainelle (The main terminal of the RR)

    Its a really interesting railroad, its still around to an extent, though I don't know whats left after the Conrail split, I know Chessie and Conrail operated it jointly into CSX.


    This loop on the C&O system map is the NF&G

    Thanks Second Moss! I have seen an article or two on that coal branch over the years, but didn't take the time to read it. I'll have to dig around in my C&O Historical Magazines and locate them.

    This is all I have to date but you can never have too many locos even on a small layout. I like to swap them around. Love the Atlas locos, my personal favorites. The Kato locos also rate high.

    I had some Athearn blue Box locos but have since sold them all, too noisy and too much trouble to convert to DCC.

    Cheers, Ken.

    Wow I'm such a noob compared to all you pros. We're modeling - or trying to model what we have here locally, so the only one that fits that is my UP AC4400CW we also have an GP38-2 (both athearns). We need to get at least one SD70MAC and a bunch of SD40-2's - (which is what they use as switchers around here-a fair amount of them with the old patched SP units) so I guess we'll have to do some custom patching. Not sure how to proceed with that, but when I get a hold of some of them, I'll be sure to ask the experts here for advice. ;)
