    Nice job on those locomotives, Dean. That MP15DC looks great in the C&NW colours, and the "patched" Rio Grande is nice, too.

    Deano, I think you ended this thread nicely.:cry: :cry: :cry: But I have to agree with you on the matter of it getting to big and nobody wanting to read this many pages.

    I have really enjoyed this thread and look forward to seeing more stuff from you in the future threads.

    Thanks for all the pics and many other thngs you and everyone else has done for this :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    O and glad to hear that you placed that massive order of detail parts for those 49 engines!!

    You can't kill it!
    Got my computer back today from getting worked on, and guess what.....THEY RE-FORMATTED MY HARD DRIVE!!!! The problem was NOTHING to do with software, the battery wasn't charging when plugged in! So now I don't have any of my UP pics to show you. Sucks, cuz I even lost a video, and many pics of my son, pics of my car, my former cars, pets, all my music, game files. Its all gone!

    Thanks for the ride, Dean. While some of us have helped to keep this thread going, and others have helped just by viewing it, I think that the main reason that it not only survived so long, but truly thrived, is on account of your enthusuiasm. I also think that some of that enthusiasm has rubbed off on more than a few of us here, and for that also, we thank you.
    I hope we get to see a lot more of you here on the Gauge.

    Dean, it’s a pity that you want to let your thread die. It has become a nice habit to look for your thread on my daily visits to The Gauge. As Miles already said, I am looking forward to your next threads too. :wave: :wave:
