    That is mine too, although it is a tie with my two BNSF SD70Mac's. In HO, my athearn AC4400 is far and away my most expensive. These may stay my most expensive for quite a while, at least until N scale swooshes come out.:smile:

    I think mine is a UP SD90MAC-II from Overland. Either that or a Tunnel Motor by Overland. They're both brass, so who knows.

    Mine is an HO Proto 2000 E8. The initial expense wasn't too bad, but I sent it out to have a Soundtraxx sound decoder installed.
    In N gauge I don't really have anything terribly expensive. Mostly Atlas stuff.
    I'd have to say it would be my Micro-Trains FT set.:mrgreen:

    My USRA 2-6-6-2. I think I've spent about $300 on it, although prices seem to be dropping. I don't think I really need one of those thousand dollar locos I've seen on some websites.
