Headin out to do some work down the line:
Here's an old Mantua Tyco F unit with an Athearn drive system and a Digitrax DZ125 decoder.
Oh my, looks like a UB SD40-2 tagged along when this covered hopper headed west.
My recent "loot" from eBay. I snagged the UB SD40-2 and Eric was kind enough to throw in a covered hopper too! So far I plan to run this unit tied to a BNSF SD70MAC. The last article I read on the UB, when he switched to GE there was a write up about BNSF MAC's coming through on coal trains. My version of "history" has it that the SD40-2 (which are no longer on coal service according to Eric) was a trade, hour for hour for use of a BNSF Mac. Now that the UB has caught up movement wise, the Mac & the SD40-2 came west...
Great work everyone.
This would make a great model!
Here's some closer shots, starting from the right and going left.
I don't think so ( it would be overdone ) but I save the picture because in just 1 picture you have all the variations of the rust color . Some kind of " the rust wheel color"
Thanks for the picture
I enlisted some help and got more shots of the old baggage car, after getting permission from KCS of course. You can see all the photos here: http://s292.photobucket.com/albums/mm18/forum-2/KCS baggage car/
jeffery-Man, that is one sorry looking baggage car, is it still owened by the KCS? If so, why don't they restore it and tag it on their executive train? Fully restored, it would look right at home behind that F unit they have running.
CNWman: As far as I know, KCS still owns it. They already have at least one baggage car fully restored and done up in the Southern Belle colors.
We got more shots of the old baggage car today including some of the inside. They can be seen at: http://s292.photobucket.com/albums/mm18/forum-2/KCS baggage car/
I really enjoyed all of that stuff a lot.All photos r really great.
