We were asked by the NSE to create an "Era" system similar to the NEM's European "Epoch" system. Here is what we came up with:
  • Era I 1835 - 1900: "Old School" Steam Engines
  • Era II 1901 - 1938: Large Steam Engines
  • Era III 1939 - 1957: The Transition Era
  • Era IV 1958 - 1978: Early Diesel
  • Era V 1979 - Present: Post Roofwalk
