    Talking Counting With Model Trains!

    We have a fun thread over on the prototype side of things in which everyone has been posting photos of railroad equipment consecutively numbered, starting with #1 to as high as they can go.

    Well why should we let them have all the fun!! :D :D

    Lets start counting with Models! My lowest numbered model is 7, so I'll wait till then, but does anyone want to start us off with #1? or perhaps even "0"? :D :D

    Good idea. I had forgotten about the prototype thread. We can always use a decal if we need a number.

    That would be interesting if someone were to model a sequential run of cars being transferred from a factory to the owning railroad. I saw a string of about 50 clean non-weathered, obviously new covered hoppers with all numbers included, though not in sequential order for some reason, at the rear of a CSX mixed-merchandise train. I have no memory of the reporting marks because it was about 10 years ago, but it was surprising to see.

    Come on, I know some of you have units numbered "1" out there! :D
    Who's gonna get #1 posted first?? :D :D
