    My pm to you and your latest post here crossed in the ether. Let's let them cancel each other out.

    Wow! This turned out to be a popular thead!

    Interesting responses so far.

    Glad to see others are choosing a certain span of years vs. a single year to model.

    On the subject of budget, I do believe that this can have an impact on decision making as far as modeling timeframes.

    My choice was a favorite time, place, and railroad. A proto-freelance of The Milwaukee Road, western Washington, circa Spring of 1968.

    It's pre-mega merger era. No Penn Central exists in my world. Nor GN Big Sky Blue. Large diesels limited to U33C, SD45. Electrics not yet fading away. Plenty of F units, and early Geeps. The timber industry still booming, heavily using rail shipment. Big wood chip cars barely coming onto the scene. Passenger trains colorful, and classy.

    :D

    "Post war" But I refuse to say which war.
    Or maybe I should say somewhere between the industrial revolution and the digital age.

    I used to model 1985-1999. I now have narrowed it to June/July 1998. Sudenly, I have enough extra cash to afford a new Mustang GT... barely.
