Can someone post the rest of the numbering system? I am building a
semi-ficticious RR based in the PC era - so I can have some PC stuff too, and
have pretty much come up with loco numbers, but would like to compare them.
I don't have enough of the Railroad roster lists to look at. I know some
roads base (or at least partly) their system on axles and horsepower, others
by loco builder. The Detroit & Mackinac as a small road uses the date the
loco was accuired. As I have not painted a darn thing yet, I can still
change as needed.
My numbering scheme, Time era 1965-1975
1000's Passenger units (all cabs)
1100's up Other Cab units
2000's Older 4 axle units - GP'9, RS3's etc
3000's Older 6 axle units - SD-9's...
4000's Newer 4 axle road units, GP-30's-40's, Alco C424
6000's Newer 6 axle road units, SD's, Alco C6**
9000's Switchers, misc, experimental units,
Toledo Train Show
Dec 26 is the usual Friends of Toledo Train show at the Maumee Rec Center on
Key Street. Starts around 10 am I believe, with an early bird pass of around
$10 or so. Usually around 200-250 tables or so. Good variety of scales, RR
stuff, etc, - I know of at least 3 dealers with photos and such, mostly
AA/DT&I, but usually some PC stuff mixed in. Also books, videos, etc.
There's also the idea that the allignment of the moon & sun will cause
catastrophic earthquakes and flooding. So batten down your rolling stock,
and beware of carollers disguised as warewolves bearing holiday gifts.
