My UP interests are in the 1950s - attached are a few pictures of most of my UP locomotive fleet. All are sound-equipped, and the 2 ABBA Alco sets tend to raise the roof a bit when they power up:

Welcome to The Gauge...Brian....That's a bunch of sweet looking UP units....What scale are you modeling..?

Some Great UP Equipment here. Love it all.
Brian, awesome challenger:thumb::thumb: Another project I need to get going onwall1
ok so the SD80 is on hold ive decided to fix my Kato SD70, and put sound in her!
im also going to say this,
KATO IS BRINGING OUT THE SD70ACe's!!! (N-scale, if it were HO id be talking like this lol)
i cant wait to own a KATY, MOPAC, SP, WP, UP lol, Rio Grande, C&NW (BNSF to make the game equal....) lol
and also also, ordered a sound decoder for my SD70M today, got one heck of a bargain too....can you say $61? lol
and a Frisco FA-1 (Atlas/Roco 1978 for a meer $10....hey isnt that reasonable since its a ALCo.?
jk i do like the sound of an alco starting up lol
Jim, i cant wait to see progress made on that Challenger:thumb::mrgreen: .
nscaler, WOW!:eeki: , thats great news about the SD70ACe's:thumb::thumb:
$61.00 is a GREAT price on a sound decoder:thumb: , what brand is it?
BTW, GOOD DEAL on the FA1 too!:winki:
I am sure that challenger will look great once you get her finished Jim.
whoops, i think its an MRC, or a Digitrax....lol
Unfortunately not much progress yet,:cry: but hopefully soon.
Thats OK Jim, i agree with Matt, i am sure it will look GREAT once your done with it:thumb::mrgreen: .
nscaler, you dont know what you bought? ...when it comes in, let us know, and let us know how you like it:thumb: .
We had our monthly O scale meeting at a new member's house. He is rebuilding his O Scale layout. He models UP only. This is some of his engines, sorry picture intensive.
