Nice looking cars, both of your sets! Nice work. Would the type cars Lionel has out have seen Alco FA power?
The LIRR ran lot's of different power during this period. They had many FA/B sets, most second hand from other RR's. They also used ALCO RS-3's and C-420's as power. The Scoot trains used FA's equipped with cab controls in a push-pull config so that they didn't have to turn trains at the terminals. These locos were re-built by GE to provide 650 VDC only. The traction motors were removed as well.
