I've never heard of one, but that doesn't mean there couldn't have been one. Maybe some of the train experts on here will chime in

IH owned several different RR locomotives over the years in "real life". Someday, I'll get a story put together that shows some of the IH diesel-electrics they owned. They were painted red and have the IH on them.

Get the RED EDGE......the IH Edge.....working for you!

Still looking for a IH 4300 Transtar Eagle Brougham Truck!! (like the one in the photo)

IH's owned past & present.......F-1206, F-806 sn# 501, CC Original # 522, CC Original(s), Spirit of 76 Cadet, 126, 1450, 1200, 1610 CADET prototype, 1250(2), 782(2), 782-Diesel(2), 982(2), 1912 & More!

See the LARGEST FREE listing of Modern IH tractor wiring diagrams on the internet (at least for now) by clicking....IH Tractor Wiring Diagrams

...Ken...

That would be a wonderful article...I'd wondered about the "Real Train" ever since I saw the model advertised.

I've seen pictures of IH's freighter before, I think that was one reason I figured a train wouldn't be a stretch.

The "Freighter" I was speaking of was a large ocean going vessel. I saw pictures of it in a book I read (A Corporate Tragedy?).

That is why I wondered if there was a real train...I never saw it if there was.
