    When I worked at PC&F, they were everywhere. Both rail car assembly lines, steel fabrication. Anywhere something would move on rails, rollers....

    Sadly to me, recent air quality regulations resulted in my employer changing over to natural gas last year. Our coal pile and the six to eight cars a day of coal we toted with our car puller are all gone forever. :(

    I just received to-day my WM hammerhead cab/short hood end from Shapeways out of PiperguyUMD's store (I do not know if he posts here). Last week, my late phase RS-3 shells came from Denon's Skytop Models (I do not know if he posts here, either). While his shell is from a Northwestern late phase RS-3, thus the carbody filter arrangement is somewhat different from WM's, I went with it, as it has one of the major spotting features: the lack of louvers on the long hood doors.

    What I did was cut the short hood on the Skytop shell and replace with the cab/hammerhead piece. This is the result of a test-fit, This shows the fireman's side, which sits a bit funny, The engineer's side is its better side. It looks like it will take a bit of work to get the fit correct.

    Shortline switcher madness. 2 need decoders, all need details added, touch up paint, weathering and then relettering.
