Joe,
Congrats on the new engine. Iím very jealous right now. Is that made by Atlas? I did not realize they still made it, in different paint to. I like the caboose train as well. Wish I could make the show, but were really busy with things here like fallen trees.

I'll get to it someday... it is on my list of things to model. I have an eventual goal of having an entire Strasburg RR train (should be done in may), 2 Long Island RR trains (that my museum currently owns) and then Black River & Western train starting with the weaver 2-8-0 for 60, train  coaches( as how many there are at the time and with caboose and then a 752. It seems the more RR I go to the more I want to model. Next I'm going to have  figure out how to make a 142 after my trip to the Bel Del. It is amazing the time I spend just thinking and drawing up plans to model things in real life(which is getter harder year by year)
 
So much I want to do, but that what dreams are for, right?
 
Here is a picture I took last summer of the piece that influenced me( and gave me the relief it can be done), because it was done so well, not to mention the real one was right behind me.

Thanks, but wouldnt 752 be in front of you? If it was behind you, you would be looking at the 420, the car we are going to restore to a musuem car, which by the way Lionel makes the right type of trucks would look great. Only its around $200 bucks for a 2 pack.

Lionel is coming out with a CNJ 4 pack that would include a baggage car, since Lionel does not tell us the road numbers, for all we know, the baggage car might be the 420...

but the Lionel have the six wheel trucks like the 420. The only CNJ coaches that had six wheel trucks were the baggage and diner cars. All the other CNJ had the 4 wheel trucks like the 297 and the Bishop.

For Passanger cars I was looking at K-line's cars. The NYC pullmans might work. But they don't have a combine or baggage. Maybe Lionel will work out better. But even if they did say CNJ they would still be repainted into BRW

Im not that great a fan of k-line. Mostly I like Lionel Mth and Atlas O. As far as buying coaches, Im not buying anything until the trucks are correct. Then the BRW scheme would come in.

True but trucks can't be too hard to change, it is the windows on the two coaches I am concerned about. Personally I am not going to reletter any CNJ cars, but I did notice that the Golden Gate Dept makes scale coaches that are perfect for the CN cars.

Actually the Burlington Northern Would be a great match. Its lights are positioned right.

If you were trying to get it 100%, there are alot of differences between a Gp7 and a Gp9, but nothing terribly noticeable. And you also forgot the BRW RS1s Atlas did a few years back.(Joe's got them).

Thanks for looking! I think I will add the Atlas GP-9 to replace the GP-7. It has TMCC so I'm happy, that is what I want in my engines   I would have added the RS-1s as well but I did not have any pictures for them. I think I'm a far way from buying anything yet so I have time to think... Have to model some LIRR first
 
Thanks again!
Anthony
