You see down here in Arizona there are no shortlines Flagstaff is probably the biggest railroad town(and Flagstaff isn't very big). BNSF usually runs threw Flagstaff alot, along with the Union Pacific and occasionally Amtrak. Also there's a small town called Kingman, but there's not to much railroad activity. As for the fallen flags, I do model them. If you look it up on the internet, I found out, the Union Pacific owns the Southern Pacific, so I guess you could say there a fallen flag line. I also love looking at fallen flag lines from Illinois and New York(because my parents are from there). Also I'm planning on modeling a fallen flag model railroad (not sure what roadname to use) but i'll keep you updated.
Hi Chris, that's the way it used to be here until CN divested itself of all short hauls, although CB&CNS is 240 miles from terminus to exchange. It became marginaly profitable when the CN transport trucks were in competition with it. Life's like that
I will be naming my N Scale Layout Pennsylvania Railroad I am planning to build this summer and then when I get my HO Scale Layout planned out I will be naming it Chessie System. ( Two Of My Favorite Railroads Out There. )
Actually, there is the Arizona and California Railroad. I'm not sure where Parker, AZ is in relation to you, so I'm not sure you ever would have seen any of their equipment, except maybe on a DHL commercial.
As for me, I model a number of railroads, including:
Norfolk Southern (and predecessors Southern and Norfolk & Western)
Santa Fe (but not BNSF)
