The Rock Island and the SP share equal top place status with me...

It would be fantastic to see the Rock Island red and yellow big letter scheme appled to an IAIS ES44!!

Ah - this is a trick question.
There is no possible way to single out just one fallen flag

I'd vote for BN if it meant that AT&SF was the natural by product!

Milwaukee Road to the Pacific would be hard to beat though bringing back the PRR would be fascinating to see!

/Mitch

Southern Pacific too. And the Rock. And by all means, BC Rail. Oh, and WP. DRG&W. And the Reading. And the C&O. Ah, why not, B&O and N&W. And I suppose the Southern as well. Jersey Central would be cool. With all that being said, I couldn't leave out NYC.

MONON!!!!! LOL.

Though, GM&O would be cool. As would IC. And CB&Q. NP and GN, too. And SP&S. The Rock was cool too.

I just realized I mentioned the Rock twice, so instead, make one of those the Virginian instead.

Thanks.

Hmm... y'know, with N&W, C&O, and the B&O returning, it just wouldn't be the same without the WM. Add them too.

I'd have to vote either for the New York Central or for Conrail.
You'll have to excuse me for being biased with a grandpa who for both roads.

GM&O would be a good choice, one of the best paint schemes out there, some very scenic trackage: plenty of bridges and probably neck and neck with the Monon (another good choice) for the amount of streetrunning trackage it had.
Oh not to mention that ICG sent the whole railroad to hell when they merged.

I'll jump on the band wagon & say Milwaukee Road along the Pacific Extension, and the D&RGW.

I would also put in CNW and the Cowboy Line.

2.) Mass Central in it's full Boston-Northampton Run

3.) New York/New Haven

4.) Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad (just because it would make life so much easier in Baltimore)

5.) Northern Central

6.) Grand Canyon

7.) Yosemite

The ICG was a Rail Road That ICI need to milk to get cash to buy other non rail corp's They didn't want to railroad and both suffered but with out it the CC&P would never been.

1. Wisconsin Central

Next would be:
2. A Milwaukee Road that didn't go bankrupt.... I wonder who they would have merged with and if they would have still kicked the crap out of BN in the Northwest like they did in the early 1970s.

Conrail still exists in Detroit and New Jersey in the form of the Shared Assets.

Wisconsin Central for recent railroads, and for something a bit farther back we'll go with....The Rock Island. That would be followed closely by Seaboard System.

I would go with the Wisconsin Central and SOO.
Being from this area I feel obligated to lines from my hometown area.

Joe I have a link to Maps for New Jersey from the 1800's to 1940's.

http://mapmaker.rutgers.edu/HISTORIC...Railroads.html

I would like to see the CRNJ, Penn Central, Pensy, NYC, and a few others that turned into Conrail in the end.
