"The Vans" to a railwayman means mail, parcels or newspaper traffic. On the FCPyF it's no different. "Los Forgonetas" is an express freight train operating a daily round trip from ...

The FCPyF has set-track curves in several places. As you say the Bachmann moguls have no problem with these but the railway's two large diesels didn't like the combined horizontal and vertical curvatu ...
