Since we're on boxcars how about this one?
Aha! That MEC box is stuffed and mounted in Essex Connecticut!
Yep!...But the picture I took is only four months old.
The pic in the link is three years old.
Its been stripped out and closed off since then.
I see the tail end of a Conrail loco. How about a whole Conrail loco. A GP35.
Anyway, before I accidently deleted my message cause I forgot to post the pic.........
Not to be picky Jeff....I think its a GP 40. All the fans on the radiator section are the same size. On the GP 35, the middle fan was smaller.
With that said...
I don't have an overhead of it in Conrail paint but here it is in L&A paint.
The middle fan is definitely smaller.
OK, GP35 it is then...
Yep, I'm betting that's an old Athearn GP35.... the details are a little clunky by today's standards...
... so to split the difference between Jeff's GP35 and 88's CSX GP40?... a C&O GP35 at St. Thomas, ON?
*edit* Geez! I hate when people post while I'm posting! :curse:
At least this time I didn't get scooped on the model type!
If you're refering to mine - Bachmann. And it's no longer a GP35 as such. It's been modified to 6 axles for use on lighter rail and is now what my shop calls a GP35/S6.
Its a Bachmann! Thats explains it. I read in a Model Railroader Product Review a few years back that the middle fan was the wrong size for the GP35. Also something about it being too high on the chassie. Actually, if I remember right, Model Railroader totally hacked the Bachmann GP35 on details.
This one gave up its rear truck for my F59PHI. Its now a "dummy".
RG&S GP35s 205 and 206, now retired and sold.
OK...I'll be the first to admitt I made a mistake.
But compare the hieght of the middle fan on Jeffery's Bachmann GP35, compared to the hieght of the middle fan on my twenty-five year old Athearn Blue Box, and you can see why I erred in the identification.
I can see how it can be a very easy mistake to make. On these Bachmann models you have to look very close.
Nice pics every one:thumb: but i see a conrail loco there so heres mine.
I see a Dash 9 :mrgreen:
here is my CNW Dash 9 thats almost completed, just needs number boards finished and to be patched for UP :mrgreen: The loco # is 8051.... This is the Athearn BB model, so there is alot less details on her, but i would like to super detail her one day :mrgreen:
Following Deano :mrgreen:
