I have a layout with a city named Irma. The hurricane here in Florida paid for over 1/2 of it. I figured it fitting to name the town after the hurricane. Having been raise in Illinois (C&NW & UP) are my major railroads. I do have a Santa Fe Super Chief F-3 with ABBA as a going through passenger train. Allegheny (C&O) because I love the engine.
My quandary is the Visionline Niagara (NYC) is really beautiful and has a few very nice features. Mr. Muffin has some available, but I can't think of a reasonable excuse why it would be in Irma (nice midwestern town). To you guys that can place this on your layout ("without looking like spats at an Iowa picnic" I want you to know I am jealous. I have the VL Big Boy and the Challenger on order. In UP, once I get past the Big Boy and Challenger nothing sticks out like the Niagara. For those who ordered it, enjoy it vicariously for me.
On to York.
