Since I'm into steam, coal cars are very important. I have several for my UP Challenger or 844.

I also have a few of the UP Overland passenger cars and 8 ALTON LIMITED passenger cars.

I love seeing center beam flat cars haling building products and GATX tank cars. I think it's because that's what I see every day. I was very fortunate when I built my house it looks out on to a railroad siding that's used twice a week, and then further down about 2 blocks from my house is a twin mainline that has been very busy since they raised the clearance and put in the Intermodal yard in harrisburg. We get about a train an hour. NS w/ Conrail. There's just something about the conrail blue engines that are beautiful. I used to love the BN Scheme but BNSF - not so much.

You do not like the BNSF theme? That has to be one of my favorites... The color orange that they use makes me drool :D

I like acf hoppers alot. I also like boxcars and some tanks and flats. I do not care for passenger cars.
Same here, passenger cars do not tickle my fancy much...

LOL, too bad I did not remember the phrase ACF when creating this poll... I am assumming that the CF is "center flow," but what does the A stand for? "Articulated" or something like that? :eyes:
