Sooooo...yer tellin' me that there's two more to look for?...sigh...at least I got the railings on.
That engine looks great! Here are the Salt Lake engines (UP 2002, 2001): http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=1163005
Thanks for the link, Scott.
How about some PROGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well folks, I've actually started a decent-sized project. but first, a sneak peek at the ARR paint scheme:
and yes, I know it looks like crap, but I'm not done. this is just a sneak peek (hand rails will remain red)
and here's what I call my crew car. part of a b-mann ATSF caboose riding on a b-mann P&LE gondola:
looking around my room because my parents kicked me off the computer for about 3 hours, I relized I coukld add a little yard and another industry to the layout. And yes, those curves are sharp (oh well):
and yes, that one is a little fuzzy, but the others are good. and yes, I will work on the roof of the transfer building.
Did they, I wonder? The engine is a fantasy, as SP had no SD40-2s.
Closest I could fine a 1978 roster was 10 SD40T-2's and 89 SD40's.
Ralf may I suggest moving the orange on the side of 1347 forward a little so it meets the orange cab. also need something on the front. Not sure what. Might get back with you on that. But looks good to me.
Here is one off my latest projects. It's a GP50RW:mrgreen:
Nice work, guys.:thumb::thumb:
The original Athearn ad...
Hey sarge, that loco looks great man!
That explains it. It's an SD40 which SP had. Not an SD40-2.
Here's some shots of the small industrial park.
The foreground spur is the future lumber yard. the one behind it is the transfer warehouse's:
here's an overhead shot. I'll probably use lichen to hide that crack inbetween the foam.
The spur for the propane dealer and the main:
Front of the transfer warehouse:
What's going on at the Aiken Locomotive Works:
and the back main:
A meet at West Mill....
6533 is a U23B right Ralph? great modeling work, btw.
Its a U28C. Here's a link to a proto photo. I do like those big six axle U-Boats!
The U23B was a four axle unit. Here's one: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=866939 I'm only so smart because of sites with excellent collections of locomotive photos like this!
An early transition era shot of SD9s (one in new PC paint, one still Pennsy) with F units and a GP20 still in NYC colors in the background....
here's a couple of vans I just did... Athearn
Look real nice Kyle! What do you use for window glazing?
