    Nscale - 4 locomotives...haven't run in years (2 steam, 2 desiel)
    HOn3 - 2 locomotives (1 steam, 1 desiel)
    HO - operable - 25 steam, 12 desiels
    HO - non-operable - 4 steam, 2 desiels
    On30 - 1 steam
    On3 - 3 steam
    O27 - 2 steam
    G - 1 steam, 1 desiel, 1 inoperable steam

    My most popular overall type of power would be 5 0-6-0s...1 Nscale, and 4 HO (3 derelict)
    My most popular operation types would be (3) 4-4-0s and (3) 4-6-4s. All HO. Two 4-6-4s are NKP...both are Limas, one with and one without ears. They're my only brass power. The third hudson is an old AHM NYC.

    Just two. I may get a couple more, but at present I don't see a reason why I need too cause these two fellers is all I need. Plus, I just got back into the hobby. Give me time.

    Proto 2000 Gp7 phase I (CP # 8416)
    Proto 2000 Gp9 phase II (CP # 8652)

    Sorry, I didn't read all of every post.
    Do B's count as a seperate loco?
    I only have eight ,counting the "B",four are "crappy pancake motored bachmann"three "F's"and a FB that used to be a dummy.I have been playing with them for four years and have had no trouble to speak of.
    The rest are all Athearn,2xGP9,and aGP35
    none of them were bought new, I got them all at show/swaps

    Interesting to see that the 1-30 locos category is growing compared to just when the poll started. I believe that this means that the people with most locos also frequent the Gauge the most.
