    You know, this is one of those hobbies that you very rarely share with your best friends. So I thought I'd share with you my current motive roster, just because I've been doing some analysis on it. Keep in mind I only began in this hobby in late September (which is perhaps why I haven't met anyone really into the hobby yet either).

    I've sorted them by power/unpower/maintenance, as well as the type of couplers they have at this time.

    POWERED LOCOMOTIVES (4)
    Kadee rear, front missing - ATSF #363 (SD40); SOO #730 (GP35)
    Horn hooks - ROCK #643A (E-8A); ROCK #4425 (U36B)

    DUMMY LOCOMOTIVES (3)
    Horn hooks - ROCK #643B (E-8A); HLCX #2035 (F40PH)
    No Couplers - VIA #6405 (F40PH)

    MAINTENANCE/NON-FUNCTIONAL
    Kadee rear, front missing - VIA #6404 (F40PH)
    Horn hooks - ROCK #5884 (SD35)

    Notes:
    - dummy locos include those I judged not to be worthwhile fixing, so ungeared them to function as dummies
    - maintenance/non-functional includes those that stutter, and those otherwise not in 100% working order (excluding coupler conversion)
    - locomotives in the process of being repainted/relettered (such as HLCX #2035) included under their "NEW" road name and number

    That is all.

    Well, let's see ... I have 15 locos (no "repeats"):

    For the Rock Island (11, with a Stewart U-boat on reserve!):

    GP7, GP9, GP40, S1, SW9, E8, F7A, BL2, SD40-2, Doodlebug, 2-8-2

    They are a mix of P2K (5), Atlas(2), Stewart(1), Athearn(1), Bachmann(1) and Athearn Genesis(1).

    For the IMRL:

    SD40 (Kato)

    For the BN:

    GP38 (Atlas)

    For AMTRAK:

    P40, F40PH (all Athearn)

    I model as if the Rock never full folded - just became a regional. So I have no trouble having a Rocket meet with an AMTRAK at a station to transfer passengers. The ROCK rolls in the QCA! If I want to "get real", the IMRL takes over.
