    I worked over the post maybe you see the images now.
    Anyway a couple more images of some truck and frame details. I added PSC 39079 fuel fillers and a retention tank to the E/S rear of fuel tank. These retention tanks hold the oils and other fluids that leak into the sump that used to leak out on to the ties.
    This image is of the rear truck modified to run backwards, opening up the see thru screen section.

    Thanks guys for the comments, I been in a kind of modeling funk lately. I have more cars and locos than I could ever use. I need to get back out to the MRR barn and do some work out there. I have all the stuff I need to put in a lighted crossing in, been needing to get that done for years. It will require some surgery to the layout fascia in a couple spots. So not too crazy about that, but it needs done. Maybe I get out there and take a look this weekend.

    My latest SD40T-2 for the QA&P, this makes 4 tunnel units for the "Q" so far. The recently acquired ex-Conrail SD45-2 has suffered a prime mover failure, and is up for disposition. I got a bit of weathering done and the QA&P 747 now enters service, we don't need to techno-toasters here.
    Just good old EMD power.

    Sweet build Tom! I take some crap from some pals about running Athearn locomotives. If they could see what magic you do to one they would hold their tongue and tuck tail.

    Looks like Tom found Jimmi Durante lol.

    Always a good sight to see a schnoz like that.

    Might just have to loan the QA&P a pair of home road SD40-2's
