    Deano, thank you :wave::wave:. No, it’s not a new engine, it is my first HO engine. I bought it some years ago when I was still planing to model C&O in WV, but that’s another story … :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:.

    Maybe we agree on the E and F noses, but that may be because we remember them better. I think if more had been built and stayed around longer, we might be discussing the PA's and FA's

    Nice start this week guys.
    I guess thats what you get for parking your FM in a bad neighborhood.Someone stole the wheels.

    Here's my pic for the week.

    Here is a picture of an SW7 I repainted to match the prototype I did for the LBCV in Negley in 1992. I still have to decal it one of these days. This is on my layout at home.

    Kurt: WOW! Another amazing Picture..Way to go.. Look's like we're off to another great start.:thumb:

    Deano: Nice Shots...Thats a huge plow:eek: Pretty cool though, it sure adds a lot of detail to the front of your F unit:thumb:

    88fan1: Nice pics:thumb:

    DoctorWayne: Another fantastic pic of your awsum layout.:thumb:

    Ralph: Cool shot of your KP&W F units.:thumb:

    It's 1975 and this is the last year for the B&O Funits..future trade in fodder for new GP40-2s.. if it wasn't for that 1975 van, this shot could pass for ten years earlier in 1965..

    While the crew argues about the correct area to fix first, Bob decides to grab a drink of coke and watch the Southern A+B+A excursion roll into the station.

    Heres 2 more photos I took during the Bucyrus club open house during the week of the county fair.I am sorry that the pictures are fuzzy but,I believe the batteries was getting low or worst the camera is on its last legs.
