"A" Railroads Base Fleet


Michael Aufderheide
 

All,
 
For my base fleet of 200 with roads starting with the letter A, I have ACL and ATSF.  For reference you would have to have a 1000 car fleet before adding Ann Arbor (737 cars).  Even with this large number AW&P and ACY don’t register.

For my 200 car base fleet need 4 ACL cars.
