ah I see! That's a cool design actually. I hope you find a way to remove that spacer. How is the spacer attached? Pins, glue, press fit?
Fuel tanks are in wrong place on the M's. The M's had them moved back to offset the cab. Looks like I'll have to flip the shell and the trucks...
Preiser has a set of US roundhouse figures that has a figure like you describe . It's on that auction site rite now .
I have a bunch of Alan intermodal kits but using the MT bolsters are a pain. What size tap, die, and screw do I need to replace the MT bolsters...
I thought I read somewhere on here that 15' - 16' centers were an average. I model the Santa Fe in the 93-94 era double track on the Marceline...
What is the distance between the inner railheads on U.S. double track? I have the parallel spacing tool from MLR but I wasn't sure if that was...
Hopefully seeing some SF freight rolling across Muir Trestle will help some.
Santa Fe ALL the Way Jerry!
I'm in desperate need of the taller exhaust stacks for my GP7/9R's. Can it be arranged at some point for me to buy those on their own?
It's weird how sites are completely sold out of the F/FP45's, and Athearn hasn't announced new numbers or anything. It's like they said, "Well...

Kind of biased from me since I'm from Kansas and I love researching the long lost MoPac lines in the state; might try looking into a Kansas branch...
Getting the motivation to start Muir trestle yet? Or other parts of Franklin Canyon? :)
Coolness. Let's see a Blue Bonnet or Pinstripe or even Zebra stripe ACe. :)
not trying to highjack the thread but since CF7's and GP7R's have the same exhaust stacks, I'm just curious if you have ideas for what I can use...
Here's the first one. Made with common hardware with a couple plexiglas backing pieces.
I bought some hardware today. Hope to get one working tomorrow and post pics! It looks like it's going to work. :)
Good idea about the tape on the back of the lock. Didn't even think of it. I'll do that when I get the locks on them eventually.
I dont know about the plunger locks. At $247 a piece, I think I'll have to go another route.
Edit: Oh, box of 12. But still.
Here's a Paint doodle of what I'm thinkin. Lol, yeah I still use MS Paint. :) What do you think?
