    Your H.O. Fleet Question

    What type of locomotive is the backbone of your loco fleet?? What type of loco do you roster most?? I probably roster more GP38-2's than anything else, so, the GP38-2 is the backbone of my fleet. I have about 25 of em. The SD40-2 or SW1500 comes in a close second, I have around 15 of each.
