I have to say that is one FREAKIN SWEET PA!!!! I need one...
CNWman: It kinda looks like a FA. The rear truck looks like a 2 axle type, It's hard to tell , and it looks a little short. I thought PAs were longer and were six axle..
GAHHHHHH!!!!! You could be right, chessie. I can't tell the difference between the two most of the time, and I can't really see the axel type on it.
Got some more work done on the module. I glued down the warehouse, office, guard shack buildings, 2 of the 3 bumping posts and also added some piping in.
Yes, it's an FA-2. Hobby shop just up the street from me is custom painting these suckers. $184 buckeroos will get'cha this'n...
Those grand canyon locos are actually FPA-4. Basically, it is an FA that is a few feet longer to accomodate a steam generator for passenger service. The railway used to have 5 operable units, 3 As and 2 Bs. I am not sure if they still use all 5. During the spring, it is pretty common to see a 15 car train with an ABA or an ABB set up front - pretty cool. They have some F40s now, and I am not sure how many of them they use, but the eventual goal was to use the F40s instead of the ALCos because they can pull more cars.
This thread has only been open for about three days and we’re on the seventh page already! Wow!

Watch out I got a long one coming.
Ooops! Obviously, I don't have a clue as to which is which. I just took the info right off of the hobby shops site. Either they could not find an FPA-4 to custom paint or the FA-2 was close enough and so they used that one. I dunno... speculation at this point.
