Come on guys, this isn't 027 on a nice layout. This is taking scale trains to the next level and making them look as close to the prototype as possible.
nobody wants to wade through threads about "toys vs models " or any of that other meaningless stuff for this sub-forum. It's all about scale fidelity on 3-rail track. That's basically it. Scale fidelity that has the realism factor.
Show us some realistic trains and make the eye the judge. I enjoy these types of trains just like many of us do.
