It was then time to be silly! We decided that the UP needed a new named passenger train -- The Big Banana. We put all of my different UP passenger sets together to create a 25 car consist. And the Kato FEF pulled it around the layout without an issue!

The train "just" fit within the Devil Mountain return loop. The engineer was able to wave to the VIPs in the observation car.

Man, these are awesome pics. Makes me miss the train shows that have all been cancelled. Want to start up a freeMoN group here in DFW, but seems everyone's more interested in TTrak.

Beautiful.

Although I doubt the platforms would be that empty if that were showing up!

This was from 3 years ago!  LOL

Here's the video from last year (2019) (I think I posted it somewhere here)

This year's was, of course, cancelled.
