The "Kathyrn Ann" followed by the "Tracey Lynn"
Then it happened....
After the Queen Mary "Big Train Show"
in June 2001, an Aristo-Craft RS-3 was
added. Modernization was inevitable. No
renaming was done, just converted it
battery power and added the figures
Early in 2005, the Holiday Train was painted from it's Holiday colors to a rich
black to match the LGB 2-6-6-2 Uintah #50. It was then taken off it's original
chassis and mated with the Barry's Big Train conversion on the Silverton Flyer.
