I've decided to take my own advice and start this... Although I am primarily a fan of the New York Central and Pennsylvania Railroad, there are a few other smaller lines that I really like. One of these is the Delaware & Hudson. Much like the New Haven, I think one of the first things that drew me to the D&H was the paint scheme - there is something about the blue, gray, and yellow that is beautiful. I read in The Historical Guide to North American Railroads that the D&H upgraded their passenger service to take people to Expo 67 - the World's Fair in Montreal. As a kid, I took a train from Manhattan to Montreal to go to the fair - don't know if it was on the D&H, but I know it definitely traveled over some of their trackage. And now that I live in northeast Pennsylvania, I am in some of the D&H's latter day territory (I sware I saw a painting somewhere of a D&H PA going over the Starruca viaduct which isn't too far from my house).
So to kick things off, here is the first D&H train I purchased. These are a pair (powered & dummy) of Lionel U36c's from around 1981 (the list of authorized service stations show 1980-81). I'm sure Jim (carsntrains) will take me to task again, but these have been packed away for years!!!
So, let's see your D&H trains, model or real.
