    Hmmm, something looks familiar with that loco. It's probably not a CNW, but if you remove half of the front, make it a 0-4-0 switcher, put the grill plate on the front, and put a really odd fan on the top, it might just look something similar to a certain type of switcher with no prototype at all...

    Great pictures everybody!
    Please keep them comin'..

    These pictures was taken at the Bucyrus club during the fair open house.These models belong to several members.

    Here we see a E-L RS2 idling in front of the yard office.

    Here we see 2 PRR Alco Centuries rolling down the #2 main.


    Here we see 3 CSX GE units rolling a freight on the #1 main.

    So why are some of the ties painted yellow in these last 2 pictures?

    Do they mark the locations of electrical gaps?

    My guess would be to denote gaps in the rails, for either control blocks or signalling.

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    Either that or passengers just aren't noting that "Please Do Not Flush Toilet When Train Is In The Station!" sign. :)

    I like those PRR units too! The EL RS2 is a beaut. I have an old AHM RS loco that I gutted as a dummy. I'm not so good at identifying differences among RS's and wonder if this is an RS2 3, or what?

    Those yellow spots mark the gaps.As far as signaling that's on our to do list.

    RS-2. An RS-3 has battery boxes by the cab on the short hood end.
