Ok you 'proto' freaks out there. I have dilemma. I love the NS and the MRL locomotives. The issue...NS is very rare in the NW and MRL as I am sure doesnt exist anywhere outside of the area of the NW(I have yet to see one in Idaho). I would love to make a Appalachian scene.

I would love to incorporate a NS/MRL mountain scene with a city scape. How would I do this being "proto-typical?"
