I will assemble these cars in diferent train sets or consists.


My first passenger car train set.

It will be pulled by two to three SD70mac’s and will include any new ARR cars as they are brought in line.
It will also haul some of the miscellaneous private cars.

It will be pulled by two SD70mac’s and will contain 5 or 6 of the new Holland America cars and an ARR baggage car.

It will be pulled by two F7a’s and 1 F7b in an ABA canfiguration.
