    I have 3 for PC. Really want a few C636s for BN. One big Alco I just finished is a DL109 for PC.

    All the parades here have been cancelled due to Corona...that UP unit looks closer than 6 feet...social distancing!

    All those Alco's look great but that L&N has to be my favorite! Awesome work!

    Yeah pretty much me too but I think that LV snowbird would pretty much be my favorite. I think.:)

    Finally got a photo of my favorite pair. These are Atlas C-630s painted and customized with printed nose/cab assemblies by a very talented modeler friend of mine. Thank you Steve!

    The photo was taken at RPM Chicagoland 2019 on one of Bill Denton’s outstanding New Lisbon modules.

    Thank you, John. My name is Dave, I'm also Alcohaulic. My problem started in the late '60s with an AT&SF Tyco C430 and a Grandfather that retired as an engineer on the EJ&E. EMD, GE, Baldwin have all tried to help me, but I always seem to relapse. Haven't had the right chance to try FM yet. Maybe that could help a bit. :unsure:

    A pair of Atlas N Scale LV RS-11's I painted long ago handle tonnage on Muleshoe Curve. My railroad is no more, but a new one is literally on the drawing board.

    Very nice! (y)(y)(y) Bet when the new layout gets off the drawing board, these Alco's will look just as great as they roam the new rails. :)
