Paul and Mike,
Since we live in a modern age, we can say you guys are "twinsies" when it comes to your LE Locomotives
Paul you have Georgetown & Western 4-6-4 Hudson 9100 and 4-8-4 Northern 1690
Mike you WILL have Lackawana 4-6-4 Hudson 1154 and 4-8-4 Northern 1637

Pam should get on the bandwagon you know since she's building her Santa Fe 4-6-4 Hudson 3464 she should build as well *wink, wink* Santa Fe 4-8-4 Northern 3751 lol.

Just ideas going out there. Thanks and Keep on Steamin' My Friends,

To start I use special custom built carts 10 freight cars on 1, loco tender and 4 cars on another and my 10 heavyweights on the last,(see pictures below) Paul will bring his engine and tender and 5 or 6 of his cars in his truck

then I will put the 3 carts in my truck and trailer and away we go.....

Lucky America!
In Europe we are dreaming of 20 Hopper Cars or 25 coal / iron ore cars at a meeting ... but on just 5 " gauge.
Great job!
