he wants to build or have built a real reproduction heavy pacific.
WOW!not quite what my plan is. I'm kind of planning far ahead and dreaming realy. I got an idea to either buy a Pacific 4-6-2 and repaint it to blue comet paint scheme or if i have to make one from scratch. then i would either buy, reporduce or if mueseums do it borrow the remaining blue comet cars. Then somehow talk CSX and UP into letting thier rails be used for it. Go from coast to coast halling passengers so people can see what the old steamers looked like and even ride on them while going to a destination, but the real goal would to preserve the history of the Blue Comets history.
If that works and is profitable enough i would probably do other historic trains like the Super Chief, The Norfolk and Western passenger train, and The Daylight. Better to think ahead than last minute.
no i don't think i'd like a golden model train just don't like the color that much:laugh:WOW!
I would like to see your model trains.:thumbsup:
They must be made of gold.:laugh:
Great idea if you can do it!:thumbsup:
If I see a Pacific 4-6-2 for sale in my travels I will surely take some pictures and get some info for you.
Keep us posted if you find something, Please.:thumbsup:
