Branson Scenic locomotives?
Author: JoCoLB

Anyone checked on the Branson Scenic power at Branson, Mo., lately? Last word I had during the winter was that two engine units were being repainted in Kansas City. I would think the Branson Scenic power would be back in Branson by now for the major tourist season. Sure would like to see the "new look."

It needs something on the front door.

A front door logo or some other artwork is definitely needed. I thought the color scheme was going to be changed while both engine units were in KC.

On the plus side of things, I am most fond of the whistle sound on No. 98. The world can sample the sound on a YouTube post.

Unit definitely needed the paint to look better and stop the rust. Now, if they ran where you could see more than tree trunks, scrap ties and rocks on both sides. And that $2 sandwich, oh my gosh!!!
