I wonder if somthing similar can be said of decals for modern RR's versus decals of railroads in the pre-merger (late 1960's) era. There may be a skew towards the older stuff in general. Perhaps the decals of older railroads have been made over the years and are still available through MicroScale an...

I have found another photo of the coaling station. It appeared in Classic Trains Magazine (Online) in June 24, 2006. The caption read: "The Pennsylvania Railroad built 90 G5s class 4-6-0s between 1923 and 1925. Ten-Wheeler No. 1963 was photographed pulling away from the coaling dock at Fort Wayne, I...

Howard:

Is the train pictured an eastbound or a westbound? I have confirmed the location of the signal bridge behind the coaling station from a track chart but it is for westbound traffic.

Coaling Station on the Pennsy

Listers: Attached is a photograph of a T-1. The caption below mentions that the location is Fort Wayne. Can anyone confirm that a coaling station existed in Fort Wayne?

Hobbyland

Too bad to hear about them closing. I always stopped by there when I was in Fort Wayne and bought something especially something Pennsy. Over the last few years, I noticed that their selection was getting progressively sparce. In certain ways, I am not surpriced. I hope this does not change their ot...

rapido cars

Scott: I read that these cars are prototypes for Canadian RR's primarily the CN. I don't know if these cars ever wore Amtrak paint, maybe VIA. I think that these cars are accruate for CN (pre- and post 1961), GTW, VIA, and maybe CP. The good news is the Rapido wants to stay in the HO passenger marke...

Do any of you model NE Indiana?

Listers:

I am a "newbie" on this list but was wondering how many of you model Northeast Indiana or Indiana in general? I model the Pennsylvania RR from Fort Wayne to Valparaiso as well as the South Bend Branch. This area has allot to offer in terms of operations and variety.
