I know I have more locomotives than I need, and half are not converted to knuckle couplers or have other issues. However my need for locomotives is predicated by my desire for operations. When I get my layout built, I plan on running: Two inbound and 2 outbound manifest freights daily, need 2-3 locos each, FT, F3, F7 sets or GP-7, GP-9 lashups. Average one inbound grain extra daily, 2-3 locos. District local freight 3 days weekly in each direction, inbound and outbound alternating days, 1 GEEP Two passenger trains, one F7-ABBA set and one PA-PB set. Local trunkline yard and passenger terminal switching, at least 1 switcher. Port switching railroad, at least 1 switcher. That's 22 locos and/or units just to keep things squeaking by. And I'm not sure where to keep them- engine facilities have been down low on my list of things to fit in. I am not crazy about locos. What I AM crazy about is freight cars and operations. And it takes locos to move them.
