  • As a Chicagoian it's hard to choose but here it goes.

    1 ICG, Grew up along the Iowa Division, also gotta love the orange/white and orange/gray paint schemes and Paducah rebuilds

    2 C&NW,Also lived within walking distance of Proviso Yard (SD40-2's)

    3 BN My Grandparents lived in Brookfield within walking distance of the station.

    4 IHB Who doesn't love a good belt line, also photographed it alot on the early 90's

    5 CSX lots of cool paint schemes in the early 90's

    6 KCS got hooked on a trip to Kansas City in '94 or '95

    7 Grand Trunk, Geeps and Auto parts

    8 Belt Railway of Chicago, Chicago's only Alcos and an MP-15 thats been wearing a bicentennial paint scheme for 30 years

    9 Chicago Central, short lived but knew how to make an intresting lash-up

    10 CGW before my time really but ran two blocks from my house would have loved to see the great F unit lash-ups in person

    11 On some level really any railroad that does business in Chicago and some that don't

  • My "favorites" have changed with age. As a kid it seemed like everything I had was Burlington Northern or Sante Fe. Looking back it was mostly because those were the easiest things to get for my train set.

    My favorites today are:

    1: Missouri Pacific (I grew up near their yard in Spring, TX.)

    2: Burlington Northern (specifically remembering the SD-40-2's rumbling through the Iowa countryside.)

    3: Union Pacific (They run the old MOPAC lines and I still live in the same area.)

    I generally favor the railroads around me. Southern Pacific came through here as did MKT.

  • BN, ATSF, CNW, SP, DRGW, UP, MP, and NP.


    Wants: 1. high-quality, sound equipped, SD40-2s, C636s, C30-7s, and F-units in BN. As for ones that don't cost an arm and a leg, that's out of the question....

    2. An end to the limited-production and other crap that makes models harder to get and more expensive.

  • Hands down the Southern Railway. Followed by the N&W, Norfolk Southern, and Atlantic Coast Line.
