    green_elite_cab Keep It Moving!

    Oh wow, look at that thing! That might make an interesting modeling project. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess it was a former Reading Lines GP38. I was under the impression that most initial GP38s were either Lehigh Valley or Penn Central units, which as far as i could tell, had Dynamic Breaks.

    How do you make the bumped out cab. In fact, why did they do this? i know they've done it on several Alcos as well, and i'm not sure why.

    At least I brought a little life to the party. I've also got an odd-ball SD40-2 I'm working on. I don't think you've seen anything like it. It's still pretty rough. You can see it in the 'Come back to the caboose' thread.

    Absolutely! You asked one little simple question and got all kinds of responses. I should have done that with mine as it didn't generate ZIP for comments (as well as quite a few others)... something like... how many period inconsistencies can you find at the car show?
    I'll have to keep that in mind for any future pics.

    I think it is a combination of the paint job as well as an optical illusion involving the railing towards the back of that second locomotive... the sides look all warped and wobbly! When I really stare at it, it looks normal. Optical illusions are funny things. Nice shot. I need to find some rail fans in N scale!

    At least you didn't wait a few months to put the decals on, unlike me and my Hustler after it recieved the gray paint:rolleyes:

    Bad news? Depends on how you look at it I guess. I love the snow and look forward to any chance of it. Here in the southwest, we are in an extended drought. It would be such a relief to get as much of that bad news as possible this winter in the hopes of replenishing some of our lakes and reservoirs. Otherwise, I fear water rations are just around the corner.

    Scott: Thanks:wave:. 3845 is a GP38 and the SD50s were the last units bought with Chessie paint:curse:, but were numbered in sequence with the SBD Sys SD50 for the future merger into CSX..wall1
