    Amtrak's Heartland Flyer is an intercity rail service that operates between Fort Worth, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Heartland Flyer serves 7 stations on its 206-mile long route (2 stations in Texas and 5 in Oklahoma). Primary motive power is the GE P42DC Gensis locomotive and a few of Amtrak's NPCUs (Non-Powered Control Units) serve as cab/baggage cars. Rolling Stock is a mix of Superliner I and IIs. Train sets are typically 3 or 4 cars long with a P42DC and NPCU on either end.[​IMG]

    I'm already working on a separate route for just Tower 55, and trust me when I say this: the highway interchanges are a PAIN to recreate 20191127115409_1.jpg 20191127115419_1.jpg 20191127115409_1.jpg 20191127115419_1.jpg

    Great idea. I've seen the Flyer before and photographed that same NPCU. It came by me so fast, the video camera didn't have time to turn on before it passed!
