I mostly run Northeastern locomotives. Being from NY, and enamoured with the New Haven, Pennsylvania and NY Central Railroads since I was a young child, I have acquired mostly Northeastern model trains.
But I also have some Western locomotives that I occasionally run on my layout.
This evening, I noticed on my layout the billboard shown in the short video below, that mentions the West and the Grand Canyon. This billboard inspired the name of this Forum topic.
And I did a quick Forum search, and did not see any previous similar topic, which surprised me.
So, we can now share photos, videos and comments here about our favorite Western model trains.
This video shows an MTH Proto 1 Texas and Pacific steamer pulling oil tanker cars.
This T & P steamer has been durable, totally reliable, has good sounds and a great smoke unit. It's a bit of a Jack rabbit like most MTH Proto 1, but it was relatively economical, has an attractive blue color, and I am very happy with it, especially now that I have a BCR in it, so I have no worries running it.
We can now have some fun here showing each other our Western trains. Arnold
