 :D
  EL used to keep at least one of the "Youngstown" cars parked by the
  Youngstown Ohio station.it could be used to fill out the Lake Cities if
  needed, or quickly run up to Cleveland for an Inspection/Presidents
  private car.
  4th of July 69 walked around one of them at the Youngstown station.
  pretty sure it was the Spirit of Youngstown,but cant find those trip
  notes any more.
  the ticket agent said the car was locked when no attendant was present.
  so wasn't able to go into the car and look around, bad timing on my part.
  later in the 70s the car got much more use by EL President Maxwell, on
  almost continuous "Inspection Specials".

Mr. Puddington,
Thanks for the update.  I think I can wait a few days until they make it to the shelves.  Been looking forward to having one of these.

Does anyone know offhand what routes the CN 10-5s ran on in the 1950s?  (wondering if I have a good excuse for picking up a couple in CN when those come out)

The 10-5's ran as part of the Montreal - Toronto - Chicago routes; the "Cavalier" and the Maple Leaf. Some could be found on the Super Continental, although not very frequently.
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

They also ran on the Washington-Montréal route, which was PRR/NH/B&M/CN. One CN 10-5 was a regular fixture in the consist during the 1950s, and usually the only CN car in the consist.
