Looking much better this year, between SEPTA 901 and the new Amfleets, I may have to put some savings away

Going to be tough to top the Walthers Proto Amfleets. Curious is Bachmann can get them right this time.

The SEPTA loco is nice, though no one makes cars to run with it at the moment.

Luckily I have two Horizon cars that, at least for the moment, will do
Hopefully Walther's rights to the cars expire soon

Even if they do, who will make them? Was hoping Walthers would do a proper run in the Proto line - the Amfleets were very well done.

I have six of the Walthers SEPTA push pull cars, along with 2 AEM7's. They do occasionally show up on eBay but are pretty pricey these days due to their rarity.

The ACS-64 is on my wish list.

Yeah, I have about 20 of the Walthers Comet push-pull cars, but in NJT and Metro-North schemes. I recall when the Septa ones were widely available. They are quite rare now.
