    After many long months of waiting, the local railfans are being treated to the appearance of the very first geep to be re-paintd into the MadCoW scheme. The first, number 730, is an ex-GN unit.

    Here she is at rest after being delivered by the CNW at Dachshundville...


    Still at Dachshundville, but from the highway.....


    I followed her down to the quarry where she waited for another unit to begin her first assignment. After getting permission, I was happy to get this view looking right into her eyes....


    And the more roster type shot....


    A little while later, she was mated to a CNW geep and the pair pulled loads westbound from the quarry....


    An official told me that E-8A #80 was about finished and should make an appearance very soon.

    More to come,

    Hey, it's a black and white version of the CNW's 'covered wagons' scheme. MadCow1, you should put 'Route of the MADCoW' on the E unit, though. THat would look even cooler IMO.

    the Bull on the front is amazing. Can you imagine looking into its eyes as the train wizzes by only a few feet away. Way too cool.

    Outstanding modelling, and a terrific paint scheme! One question: What in the world do all those telephone and power lines serve? They are reall well done - they look quite real in the pics.
