cool beans
I saw a photo of the said train being switched by Army locomotives at Fort Eustis VA in the early 90's when you guys set up on post. The locomotives in question were small red BLH Rs4tc's . The photo was in Railpace. I'll see if i can find it.

-Willie the Army train guy
PS not all Circuses suck just the ones with smelly elephants. I like small ones.

Shifted that sucker to the "Reading Above" (Morton Ave.) off the Chester Running Track in Eddystone, PA in '92 or '93. I got a hat and we all got some tickets. Still have the hat. Great post, SLIC.

I'm not sure if you know about this SLIC, but there's an HO model available of the James E. Strate carnival train. Here are links to it. It's available as either a complete set with track and transformer or just the train.
