I don't think I'll ever understand the fascination that some have with these trainsets.

 

Unique, rare, exotic train with jet engine propulsion and sexy bullet train looks....same reason people are more fascinated with Ferraris than Honda Civics?  But also the almost unthinkable waste of spending tens of millions on completely rebuilding them only to let passengers have a brief ride on a couple of them, and then say, "Psych, just kidding!  You get the crappy old trains back and these go into storage, never to be seen again!"

The RTL-III is my Eleanor.  I wonder if there's a way to get one out of Bear undetected!
