    I have had a hard time deciding which railroad I like the best.... Finally settled on the Union Pacific because there are so many different locomotives, it is the closest to my location, and its colors do not get merged into someone else just about the time I begin to get interested in modeling something. I also like the BN in Cascade Green and black, but for now it is in a minor role. I plan to build my layout around the Hinkle, OR to Nampa, ID section that runs through the Blue Mountains. Work is progressing, but not to the point where we can operate trains yet.

    YESS!! when i got to this msg board, i was SOOO hoping that there'd be a UP board. this is sweet. i'll be coming here often!

    i found this place by a link found on train page i was looking at.

    i was so stoked when i found out that USA trains (model company, but i'm sure you already knew that [​IMG]) was coming out with UP SD40-2 engines. i'm gonna get mine on order. i don't really remember what got me to start liking UP engines....they rock! [​IMG]

    last week i was going back to work from my break and to get to work i gotta cross tracks. well, coming up to the gates i saw them coming down and so i sped up and whadayaknow! there were 3 UP engines pulling 2 other engines (don't remember the name) pulling i don't know...25-30 cars maybe? and best of all it was goin slow so it rocked. i was in awe staring at it while it was going by. it was sweet. needless to say i was a bit late to work, but i don't care. that pretty much made my day.
    i would LOVE to work at UP. wouldn't know....well...i DON'T know where to start actually. [​IMG]

    now i'm just babbling.
    bye

    Wlecome to trainboard George. I am also a UP fan and model the UP on my N scale layout. I think us UP fans need to be a little more active and get some posts going in here

    oh man! that's YOUR site?! and YOUR layout?! oh, just in case you're wondering i clicked on your web page there. [​IMG]
    that's a VERY nice layout! i'd be showing that thing off like you wouldn't believe!

    hmmm, i think i'm going to bed. it's 2am now.

    it'd be nice to see this UP board grow.

    Even a die-hard chessie fan can like UP!

    Theres no such thing as having to many coal hoppers or GP40-2 when you model Chessie System
