I had to go look.  Been working on scenery and rolling stock lately.  In the freight yard/engine service facility I have some old Athearn Diesels and a P2K SD7.  On the Passenger yard I have my Acela set.  On a siding I have a Spectrum Heavy Mountain (modified to a B&O T Class), leading some B&O Passenger cars.  On my branchline I have  a Bachmann Standard 0-6-0 (modified to a B&O D30), pulling a cut of ore cars.  There is a Coal Mine and Turntable on the branchline.  The stall tracks are holding a Varney 0-4-0T, Rivarossi 0-6-0T, and two Bachmann H16-44s.

On the double-track mainline are double-headed Heavy Mountain and Consolidation (one side hauling mixed freight) and a Bowser G5 (other side hauling coal).  Everything else is in a wall-mounted display case or boxed for display at the upcoming train show in Timonium.  Timonium is where I run the DCC/Sound stuff. 

My home layout is strictly old school, Dog.  Sorry my daughter has "Santa Buddies" on the tube right now.

The 'regular' locomotive on the Monks' Island Railway is a Bachmann GE 45 Tonner. On standby is a Bachmann Plymouth MDT (actually a WDT). My much beloved Atlas MP15-DC is really on display as it is too large for most of the sidings.

At the moment 2 GE 70 tonners One is in MOW service the other brings the waste from the trash transfer station to the yard where the cars are assembled into long consists for CSX to haul to South Carolina.

There is also a C & O dockside switcher that used to run a tourist train at times.  I also have 2 GP 40's that appear from time to time.

The last run of B'mann 2 truck Climaxes was around 2005-2006. I picked mine up in mid 2006. If you're buying a used one, keep in mind that they were prone to driveline failures similar to the Shay troubles. And Bachmann has NO PARTS at all for these 2 truckers.

Waiting to go into the shop is a Tyco 4 6 0 Rogers and a Mantua 0 6 0 tanker.

Looking to get a sound version of the newer Bachmann steamers.

Always seems like there is one more engine that I would like to get !

For my HO layout:
An AHM Third Avenue Railway Trolley set and a TYCO Nob Hill Trolley, and these are not on the tracks, but just set on the layout. Everything else is put away in boxes, all rolling stock included with the exception of one Bachmann log car that is sitting on the tracks somewhere.
For my N scale layout
The only loco on the layout is an Atlas AC&Y #200 FM H-15-44. No rolling stock is on this layout currently either.
