What is your favourite railroad(s)?

Postby CaTTwoman281 » Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:38 am

This is a question that pertains to North American Railroads only.

What are your favorite railroad(s).

My favorite railroad is the Chessie System and the roads that formed it (B&O, C&O, WM).
My second favorite is the Norfolk and Western.
After that comes the Union Pacific (Gotta love the 844 and 3985!)

Since James is a big Southern fan, and I am a big N&W fan, we are by default Norfolk Southern fans each.
(And we both HATE CSX......)

Since I got back to "train lovin" a couple of years ago, most of what I've seen around me has been Norfolk Southern. So that's my vote :thumbup:

Group A (Ones I've modelled or would model):
Pere Marquette (including C&O in Michigan and Ontario), Quebec Central, Piedmont & Northern, Georgia & Florida, Canada Southern.

Group B (Faves, but not enough to outright model)
Canadian Pacific, Chesapeake & Ohio outside of Michigan & Ontario, Michigan Central (and the rest of the NYC system), Seaboard Air Line, pre-Tuxedo Southern, Erie, Milwaukee.

If I have to pick only one, though? Pere Marquette and Piedmont & Northern. I'm not picking just one!

I can't pick just one either...

We collect pretty much every railroad, although we do not care for the New Haven, and hate CSX.

My big three are:

Southern
Union Pacific
Burlington Northern

I like the New Haven's electrics, because I'm a sucker for anything under wires!
