I didn't get here quite as soon as Rick, so part of the attraction of fallen flag modeling is being able to recreate things that I missed, like steam power on the PM and GTW. At the same time, I find myself attracted to things like RailAmerica and the 20+ patchout schemes seen on Huron and Eastern engines prior to the Genesee and Wyoming takeover along with Brunswick green and gold Detroit and Mackinac C425's. It's because of this and the fact that I like all ages of vintage vehicles (After all, they are the supporting cast for the trains that are our main characters) that I have never been able to settle on one era. (No, I do not mix them all together at once,) but I can't, for example, freeze model time in 1948 to the exclusion of 1955 Fords and Chevys or 1973 Ford pickups. So scrolling the era gives me everything I like and also provides a lot of modeling opportunity in a small space. Just my 2 cents. So, yes I am a fallen flag modeler.
