Well, I've got these:

But not liking diesels I pull it with one of THESE:

And the "President Washington" pulls those original 13 states better than the diesel does anyway!  Just like the Big Guy did to begin with!

I didn't say anything since I don't have photos to share at this time, but the classic "State of Maine" boxcar is and always will be a favorite. I own a 6464-275, and this summer I found a box for a 3494-275 (no car unfortunately). My favorite piece of red equipment I own right now might just be my dinky little 0055 M&StL husky switcher. I don't own much of anything white besides my all-white milk cars (Lionel 3472 & 0366, American Flyer 917). The best blue I have on the roster is a tie between my B&M equipment and the 3530 Mobile Generator Car.
