For those that don't know I did get my first of 2 Phase V P-42's (both in Vb) I really can't wait to get the other one, and really like the one I have now. In fact now my little brother wants one for his Amfleet Cafe now.

But then I'd have to either run the Auto Train with 1 P40 till October, or with Electrics. :blink:

Well the Autotrain is supposed to run with P40's, not P42's anyhow. So you are already in trouble with that one. :(

I'm planning on retiring my two P-40s (801 and 832). I will proably replace them with two P-42s in Phase V.

As much as I'd love another P-40 (in Phase III, I have one), why would I lease 803 from you when it's already running my Auto Train with P-42 #184 (In Phase V) in the lead. What are you dimentions on your tables guys?

After alot of work, I took it to my nearest train store, and found out that I deffinetly needed to eathier do alot of maintance, or buy another replacement motor. So...I have a second motor in the mail. Oh well <_< , atleast It will run again..again..again :lol: .
