Well, my dad has the whole room cleared for his railroad start building, and he hopes to get something up this fall. Recently we've been discussing his "fleet" and we're (as in I) going to produce an interchange fleet that he & I will loan out to other model railroaders for a "tour" of sorts. I've wanted to do this for some time, and finally get my chance. Here's how his roster plays out (for now).

Reporting marks at QHS, items marked (NI) are non-interchange.
  • 1-20 MOW rolling stock (NI)
  • 60-89 being flat cars
  • 100 0-8-0 Steam Switcher (NI)
  • 200 2-6-0 Steam Freight (NI)
  • 380 GE 44 Ton Switcher (NI)
  • 5xx being 3 bay hoppers
  • 660 GE 70 Ton Swithcer (NI)
  • 11xx being boxcars
  • 1300-1329 being pulpwood/bulkhead flats
  • 1330-1369 being gondolas
  • 1370-1399 being woodchip gondolas
  • 1400-1425 being "other" cars
  • 1426-1499 for future expansion (if they run out of room)
  • 1500 C415 (NI)
  • 1600 RS3 (NI)
  • 1800 RS11 (NI)
  • 20xx being 2 bay hoppers (NI)
  • 2400 RS27 (NI)
  • 2401 RS27 (NI)
  • 2405 C424 (NI)
I have the first interchange car coming now, its #1100, a Genesis 50' Seico boxcar.
