    Hi there everybody!
    We are two old fellows in southern Sweden that builds a model railroad layout in a cellar. The theme for the railroad are: Have fun :thumb:
    We gladly mix swedish rolling stock with US and don´t bother about it. We simply have fun.
    You can see our layout at our website. Please sign our guestbook if you visit us :)

    Great! The pictures are interesting seeing so many diesels and engines from different places on one layout.

    I think some of those Marklin Models are awesome looking,especially the ones modelled after trains from the third reich,very attractive and I wouldn't mind having one.

    Nice layout also!

    Thank´s everyone for your response to our little railroad. :wave:
    It´s really a small layout but we think we have the space that we need to both build a landscape and to run some traffic.
    You can see a movie from a interesting trainmeeting at our railroad between "The ugly duckling" and a Swedish Rc-locomotive here http://www.fasth.de/trains/film/tagmote.MOV

    Welcome, from one old boy to another. Nice to hear from you. I worked in your country in 1991 and was surprised at the number of model railroaders that I met.

    I worked as a field service rep for Boeing. I was at Arlanda Airport, with Lynjaflyg airlines. I lived in the community of Mearsta, about five kilometers from the airport. Please excuse my spelling of the the Swedish names.

    I´m familiar with Arlanda and Märsta because many years ago I worked at the fire brigade at Arlanda airport. I also worked as a firefighter at Bromma domestic airport south of Stockholm.

    We have some american diesels and they all are going very well but this loco is number one. A lot of muscles but moves like a lady, with grace...
    We believe it´s a SD70M but we are not sure so could someone tell us if we are right or wrong? :)

    It appears to be a GE C44-9W.

    berraf, is that not a dash 9? Or like thoroughbreed says C44-9W

    green_elite_cab Keep It Moving!

    yeah, thats definitely a C44-9W.

    EMD locomotives ( such as the SD70M) have a different style cab, and they don't have the winged radiators.

    the winged radiators are a feature of GE locomotives.

    I really need to read moore about US locos beacaus at the moment I don´t can see the difference but that will come. I hope :rolleyes:
