Best Santa Fe
« on: January 17, 2021, 05:44:26 pm »
Hello all.
Back in 1974 my father built me a train table for Christmas.  It ran 4 trains at once, and it is still my most memorable Christmas.  Unfortunately,  a few years later we had a break in, and all my trains were stolen. Fast forward to today,  I'm attempting to rebuild that set.
My favorite train was a 8020 8021 8020 Santa Fe. Both A's were powered, and it had magnatraction.
My question is this. I see 3 options on replacing the Santa Fe:

1- find another 8020 8021 8020

2- Go with a new Legacy Santa Fe

3- Find the most desirable or "best" Santa Fe that was made.

Cost is not a huge concern.

What are your opinions?

Thank you!
