    Dave, It just ain't realistic to ask some one to have to choose only five of their engines to keep.:crying:

    So lets try it with ten.;)

    (4) All of my brass UP Consolidations
    (5) All of my brass UP Light USRA Mikes
    (6) All of my Atlas Geeps
    (7) All of my Kato F's

    (9.5) All of my brass Alco FA/FB's
    (9.75) All of my brass Alco S4's
    (10) All of my Kato NW2's

    I'm one of these people, so like Robert...I'd have to do "type" of loco.

    But even then, hmmm, if I reclass a loco, say an F45 or SD45 to an SD40-2, does that count as an SD40-2, so if I say SD40/40-2, I include the SD45/F45 fleet too, right?

    So for me, 10 locos, still not a realistic number, its about 5% of my total fleet, I'll keep everything of mine.

    You could cheat and class all of your engines that start with and "F" as one type, all of your engines that start with an "S" as another type...all GP's as "Geeps"...all those that start with a "U" as "U-boats"...then you can number like I did...

    At least until the Model Railroad Police come knocking on your door holding your list up and saying "No no, no cheating allowed. We're here to confiscate all but ten locomotives from your roster..."

    Hopefully you'll have buried most of your roster in a plastic tube in the backyard somewhere!

    Hahahahah :D

    Cheerio!
