    Thought I'd start off this weekends foto fun with some shots of my just finished MoPac Cupola caboose.







    This shot is a comparison of the same Rock Island caboose I started with and the finished MoPac caboose.



    Still two more caboose projects in the wings than that should finish it.

    I am waiting for some parts to come in so that I can finish my GP10's.

    I was looking around and found this photo.

    MP 531 - a GP18 at Wichita, Kansas - July,1972 - Lee Berglund photo/T. Greuter collection



    From: http://www.trainweb.org/screamingeag...1gen_gp18.html

    Since I model the MoPac as one of my interchange roads I thought it would be cool to have a unique unit on the layout.

    I realized that I had just about everything I needed, as far as parts, on hand to build this locomotive. The only thing I don't have is the exhaust stacks with spark arrestors. Does anyone know if someone makes this style?

    I've ordered paint and decals for this unit. I plan on having it ready for painting by the time they get here.

    MoPac style chopped nose GP18, future MP 531.

    Nice work, guys.

    Tad, the MoPac GP18's arrestors are similar to the old Loco-Motives arrestors. Not available unless hidden at the back of a drawer somewhere.

    The mold cracked some years back and lost all the Loco-Motives parts as they were all on the same sprue, particularly their beautiful all-weather windows. I believe deLuxe may have come into the possession of the mold in view of repairing it.

    I did play with making a 'H' profiled former to fold fine mesh over as an alternative.

    Loco1999: Nice train room! Is it an attic, basement, or just a finished room?
