OK, not to start a competition, or a war, or anything, but after seeing numerous photos and videos posted on MLS and actual model trains in person at several shows I've attended, I have to know...Who in the large-scale hobby owns (or has) the longest coal train? Please feel free to post photos/vidoes if you have any new ones that haven't been posted already.

P.S. Mine's only 18 hoppers long, so I know it isn't me. :rolleyes:
