hello all---here's a selection of cn pacifics for your review---any favourites ???
They all look good, but 5588 is my favorite.:grin:
Interesting... no two are alike in details. I like the look of the high walkway over the air tank (?) and pumps on 5626 and 5107.
hi loren and triplex---thanks for responding.Even though 5107,5303,and 5626 were all products of the montreal locomotive works,they all have very unique features.#5588 was built by the grand truck railroad in 1910 at their Pointe St. Charles Shops in Montreal.Here's a couple more head -end shots showing the classic cn features as well as individual differences
This is what I love about steam engines, no two are ever exactly the same. They're almost like living things. I like 5626, it has the look of a hard working engine. Who made these models or are they custom built?
hi kanawha---i agree with you 100%---all locomotives are brass imports---5588 and 5626 from overland models,5107 is from VAN Hobbies PFM,and 5303 is from Division Point North---here's the final shot as i don't want to wear out my welcome---thanks for your responses
Good stuff nutbar. Pacifics are a great locomotive in general, to my eye - they have a nice balanced look, whether high or low drivered.
There all really nice looking , hard to pick a favorite without running them on MY layout sign1 , any chance at that happening? Are they DCC ?
hi lynn---sorry,they're not dcc---after having had a chance to run #5303 on Doctor Wayne's layout,I have to admit that this has become my favourite
Nice pics ( as usual ), nice looking engines.
I like the #5303 better, but just can't explain why
Oh well I still like them even though there not dcc:thumb:
These are awesome pics -- very impressive locos, scenery & photography. I like the first one best, #5303. Rob
Just foolin' around a bit with one of nutbar's photos:
That there is some good looking steam detail. Good depth of field on the photo as well. Props.
thanks for all the comments everyone---here's a view of the engineer's side of #5303
