    The real reason for all these photos of diesels is that most of Mister Nutbar's steam locos are in service on my own Grand Valley.:thumb: If I can wrap-up some other projects, perhaps I can get them all repainted into the Grand Valley's colours before he comes here for another visit.:D :D
    Nice photos cn nb: I recognize a few customers there that have been through my shops for one thing or another.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Ahhh! We need to stop the clock circa 1958 - last days of steam in southern Ontario! ('Course, Ian Wilson sorta did that with his Steam... books ;))

    Nice work guys! :thumb: :thumb:

    hello all---thanks for your feedback---it's always appreciated.hey andrew,one of the advantages of model railroading is you can stop time so my layout will always be in the late 50's,lots of steam and first generation diesels---no wonder people refer to this period as the golden age of railroading.dean ,you had a comment in one of your recent threads regarding doing research and reading all kinds of train related materials---i think i have at least 130 hardcover train books which give all kinds of inspiration,and yes ian wilson is one of my favourite authors---i have all his volumes---thanks again,happy railroading---nutbar

    thanks ralph and dean but i can't take any credit for the detail work---9003 is part of an a-b-a set of stewart diesels that doctor wayne custom painted and detailed for me---all 3 units are powered and they pull as good as they look.here's a picture of all three---9003/b-unit 9004/and 9000


    as for 4822 it's a p2k unit factory painted with a cn bell and marker flags added on---one of these days i'll get the doc to add a bit of weathering to the trucks and i'm sure it will look even better

    Wwwooooooowww ... that's purdy. Perhaps ballast is in order? :)

    I'm only 27 (nearly 28) years old so I have no memories of the F units running, but for some reason they just look so right leading a train. In almost any configuration, A, A-B, A-A, A-B-A, and the ground pounding A-B-B-A (Abba!), they just look so proper. I have an HO A-B-B-A set of Santa Fe frieght F7s, all powered. It seems somehow unfortunate that one of them was capable of pulling every piece of rolling stock I owned - need a bigger layout!

    Boy those diesels look great!!!

    I think for all of us who've bought more diesels than they have space to run them we ought to get a small card that we can pass out to hobby store owners that reads: Please direct me to the nearest train engine counter. I have ADD - Acquiring Diesels Disorder - and need to make a new diesel purchase. Thank you for help.
