    Yep, it may be much more difficult, but I think the rules have been established. announce1 Just the number by itself, no more, no less. It may also slow things down a bit as people scramble to find something with only the next number on it, but hey, that's the fun of the challenge.:wave: :wave:

    Here is a loco I have never herd of, a UP GE 8500 GTEL. I don't pay much attention to older engines but I thought this one was pretty cool, BTW, let me know if this loco is called something else cause I just went off of what the description said.:oops:

    Not a picture related question...But kind of...
    Josh's post of a single GP 38-2 hauling a good number of loaded hoppers makes me wonder why some railroads use more than a single engine when its obvious that a single engine can do the job?? What "rules of thumb" govern consisting??

    Here's another #22. My own pictures of the locomotive don't work since it doesn't currently bear the number, its paint is stripped off while it undergoes restoration.

    Great pics guys...!!! Keep it up... I did have to look real hard to find the # on that caboose...!!! The last 2 #22 pics are sweet, but my heart leans a little towards that gorgeous M&HM 2-8-0 (what road is that??).

    Marquette & Huron Mountain, a tourist line that operated in the Michigan UP during the 1960s. The locomotive originally worked for the Lake Superior & Ishpeming and that is the livery it is being restored to.
