Default Double Stacked (For Torgny)

T: I tried to keep good vertical symmetry in this one. Some of the containers are actually leaning a bit. I thought the vertical lines as well as the variety in colors made for an intersting composition.

That's big, Jehan,

What's the max speed for this set? You know, perfect verticals and horizontals don't exist in the real world. We'll have to let it be that way. I like the picture. Thank you very much

Torgny

Special colours - gamut of old film rolls. Somewhat sixties-ish or perhaps seventies-ish

T,

These trains can move up to about 50 MPH once they are out of urban areas. It amazes me that a train such as this with 100+ cars double stacked with containers can be pulled at those speeds by just 2 locomotives. Used to be that they'd need a 6 locomotive set.

Nice shot Jehan. With triple stacking we could have 33.33% more Chinese crap on our shelves. As a veteran of the Korean war I still remember that we are legally still at war with N. Korea and her ally China. It's a shame that this history has become a non-factor for most U.S. citizens.

Well, taking on the People's Republic would be a tougher task than making war with North Korea :-) BTW- the latest republican presidential candidate just exported som high quality US workers to China
