Reply to "Who's in for the Milwaukee Road Acela?"

I like the Milwaukee Road Acela!   For decades the MR was electrified in the West and through the Cascade mountains, so its not a huge stretch of imagination (assuming that had the MR kept their electrified line and the railroad go bankrupt)  to envision this Olympian Hiawatha Acela zipping through the Cascades Mountains!  Then, one could also assume that since the track was not electrified all the way to Seattle and Tacoma, you would then need to add in some diesel power to actually drag or push the train into the train stations in Seattle and Tacoma, in order to have  a complete prototypical operating session.  Unfortunately, I don't have 72 inch curves and won't be able to buy this set, but if it was rated for 54 inches, I think the paint scheme is really cool and would enjoy having it on my layout.
