the orange car, for all of the non-railroad guru's, is a Bethlahem 89' flush-deck trailer flatcar. I got the car for my birthday on november 10, 2008. If you were HO scale (which you're not), and were standing on the middle of it, it is so long you could see the outer rail on one side, and would be floating over grass on the other.
here's some basic operation on the terminal.

I have my 4-6-4 and the railway post car and observation cars packed up ready for christmas. Mom got a tree (our first real tree!) and i've got a track set up. I can't wait till christmas, the sights and smells. on top of that a big steam engine with 2 trailing passenger cars. the whole set is new york central. I inherited this from one of my grandfathers. the 4-6-4 is a rivorossi worth about $700.00. it runs nice despite the years of sitting in a hot dry attic. with a little ultra-lite oil and some flatout running its pretty cool looking.
