I;d like the forum's advice on a somewhat prototypically compatible engine with a new Amtrak consist I recently purchased and an older Amtrak consist I have. I'd like the engine t have proto 3 or proto 2.:
5 K-line Horizons-Phase III- 15". Photo of the K-line Horizon's below. The stripe is LIGHT BLUE, not the deep blue.
MTH Railking Phase IV 16" Amfleets
My current Amtrak motive power is a TMCC Dash-9 Phase III with deep blue(6-18252) and the set version of the HHP-8(Phase 6). The HHP-8 works with the Lionel Amfleets, and the Dash-9 can work with both of the above pictures but its not optimal.
Ive gone to a website that shows realistic Amtrak consists. F40PH jumps to mind right away, however, I had my eye on a Railking Imperial F59PHI which goes with Horizons being in the midwest. Your feedback and opinions are greatly appreciated!
