SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING WHAT THE LOGO ON THE CAB SIDE SAYS. WELL, THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU AN IDEA.

I'M "DEVELOPING" A MYTHICAL ELECTRIC RAILROAD THAT SORT OF "MIRRORS" THE ILLINOIS TERMINAL, BUT ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.

THIS WILL ALLOW THE ROAD TO ACQUIRE LOTS OF USED EQUIPMENT FROM A VARIETY OF MIDWESTERN ROADS. PLUS, IT ALSO ALLOWS FOR INTERCHANGE WITH A LOT OF MY FAVORITE ROADS, BOTH ELECTRIC, AND STEAM - DIESEL.
"TIED-UP" WITH "POLE DOWN" AT THE END OF A LONG DAY, NUMBER 110 IS READY TO REST FOR THE NIGHT BEFORE RESUMING ROAD AND SWITCHING ACTIVITIES ON YET ANOTHER DAY.
