I am getting ready to start a project I have wanted to do since I was in 4th grade and my parents took me to see the American Freedom Train in Oakland. This beautiful train has remained my all time favorite, and I plan on completing the complete 25 car train. Almost everything will have to be kitbashed to some degree, and modelers licence will definatly come into play here, but I still plan on doing it as close to the real train as possible. While the train continued on it's journey across America it was repainted several times and changes were made to its cars, so my model will represent it at sometime during it's historic trip. While I have no idea how long this may take, and I don't plan on rushing this project, I am really looking forward to it. I'll share the progress of this trains journey here, and start this thread with a picture of what I believe is the most beautiful locomotive to ever grace the rails.
