    I've got two AB sets of the Intermountain FT in Cotton Belt black widow livery, and very nice they are too!
    I want to run them in combination, but would like to know whether:
    1) The Cotton Belt ran them in combination;
    2) If they did, was this as ABAB, or ABBA, or both?

    Any help gratefully received!:thumb: :wave:

    Your best bet for road-specific information would probably be a road-specific source: a book, historical society, or magazine article. Asking on a general model railroad forum will likely only get you generalized "Probably" and "They're your trains, do what you want!" type of replies.

    That can be the case frequently, but there are also some folks with road-specific knowledge on some boards who will answer questions or point you to a good source.

    There actually is a standard answer to the FT question, which is ABBA regardless of the roadname, although exceptions certainly exist.
