Favorite railroad of all Time: Western Maryland, favorite power was BL2 #82 (The first model I ever got), one of my youngest memories was seeing the unit at the B&O museum in Baltimore. I also like any early WM diesel power.

As far as current roads, I really don't know which I like best, and I'm not to keen on super modern power, I like Gen 1 and some 2 stiff the best.

Personally, I think the Ferrovia dello Stato (FS) of Italy has some really neat equipment, like the E656 Caimano, and very reliable service for reasonable prices.
