Re: G-N versus Consist Data for train construction


I like someone's suggestion of reserving a small proportion of the fleet for rarities, which are rotated. Saves me the need for 974 X29s: I don't mind building a few, but hundreds of the same thing are a pleasure only for our distinguished SPF brethren (and maybe even only some of them!). :-)

trains will exhibit those rarities." "small number" factor in order to achieve the FEC car. Besides,
when I was a kid I saw KO&G trains...they had 9 box cars. Let's see. If I
conduct an op session once per day, the Cubs will win their second World
Series before I can use it. Meantime...

"now you know why there is never enough staging space."

Staging hell. Storage space for the 4750 box cars...seems like that many
