Another cool loco!
I am not sure but at some point I think some asked about my photo props or what I used. So here is the info:
I am using a Sony Cybershot 4.1 Mega Pixel camera. My lighting is 3 old table lamps with 100 watt bulbs. The back ground is two pieces of foam board painted light blue.
Tom:wav: , THANKS for posting those pics!:up: WOW!:eeki: your pics look SO GOOD, and your just using three table lamps:up: . i have 4 three tier tree lamps, yet my pics always look dark to me . you got me thinking now . THANKS!:mrgreen: -Deano
Deano: Nice lookin GP35..
Tom: Your secret is out now. I am going to have to borrow your idea of the grassy piece in front of the camera, good thinking.
Here's a high five on the fly:

WB 97 departing siding after meeting EB 94
That's a nice shot! Beautifully detailed loco with the grills, the hoses, the sun shade on the side window.... I like the weeds by the crossbuck too!
Thanks Ralph, but I cant take credit for the engine, it came that way, but I did do the weeds! lol
Chessie, who is the loco's manufacturer?
Ralph; it is a Life Like Proto 2000, these are sweet engines. They look great and run smooth and quiet. I wish they would come out with a GP40/-2. We have 2 of these GP38-2s CR & L&N, 1 GP7 B&O Chessie and 1 U28B L&N. The only thing I don't like about them is they do not run well on DC with Athearn or Atlas engines, they have a slower gear ratio I guess . They do run well with my Bachmann Spectrums. I'm guessing that P2K and Bachmann Spectrums have about the same gear ratio...
Josh, NICE engine pics!:up: those coal porters look GREAT TOO!:up: :mrgreen:
Mark, FANTASTIC SHOTS!:up: i just cant get enough of the AWESOME PICS of your layout! :up: :mrgreen: .
