Re: None of the above
- Hi Scott,
I included "None of the above" in anticipation of the wide range of
tastes in Z. I'm glad that you mentioned ME style track. I think
that this is the first reference to ME in our track discussion.
I didn't include a SW9-1200 because we're going to see Billy
Roden's prototype in St. Louis so I figured that this choice was
covered in a fashion.
As for a GP20 rebuild or GP35, can they be considered 2nd or
3rd generation motive power? Once we get an idea of the
response preferences we can hold a discussion on the
particular prototypes that we are looking for. In a previous series
of message exchanges on Z_Scale, we actually came up with a
wish list. Strangely enough, none of our wishes have come
true...no one was pining for an Alco PA!

- Ha, how true. A couple of years ago my wife and I took a number of AMTRAK long distance trips. EVERY trip had a few "kids" who just could not be bothered to look out the windows in some of the most scenic parts of the far west of United States. iPods, iPhones, laptops, games and more ruled the day(s).
