I have few regrets in life (things have worked out really well)... getting involved in this thread however is a big regret.

Well whatever guys no one reads my posts anyway, or they wouldn't have been talking about leasing companies and trusts. I clearly specified that I was talking about Railpics purposes, not in depth. The CNW engines belong to the UP. Does the UP own them? No, but they belong to the UP.

Charles, what exactly did I say to you that was so bad? That you were wrong? Your statement makes no sense, Kilroy never made a statement either way....

You guys are all wrong. Bottom line. You don't read any of my posts and keep saying the same garbage. Whatever, keep on mislabeling power.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

By your definition, the Chris' are both wrong, which is unlikely, as on this issue they set the rules.

What are you talking about? I am defending the rules they out down. For RP purposes, the CNW duo BELONGS to the UP. That is my point.

You mean the CNW duo is operated by the UP.

This thread is getting funny.

No, I said belong. The rule states belong, it does not say operate.

We must be railfans... no sane human beings would have allowed themselves to get into something this trivial this deep.

You know maybe if RP was simply more clear on what they wanted you to fill in, we wouldn't even HAVE this confusion.....

Also, for the record, the CNW duo is leased, not owned by UP, and the lease is up for expiration next year.

John,

I found the reporting marks for the Temptations, Four Tops, and Gladys Knight and the Pips, but I'm having trouble with Diana Ross and the Supremes. Any help?

I believe the reporting marks for Dianna Ross became Michael Jackson in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Max,

To quote a good friend...

The "statement" Kilroy made was in the reporting marks on the photo used as an example. Yet somehow, you continue to gloss over the photo examples from Starnes and Kilroy that completely conflict your crusade.

Actions speak louder than words and the admins have therefore spoken.

Which was exactly my point in the above post.

I didn't mean through an RR subsidiary like SOO Line, but a company like CIT.
