Very nice Carl. I watched the build from the beginning on RW.
Very nice Carl.
Looks great Carl,
Here is a sister-
Those who have tried to contact me, if you are still interested in castings please email me at Superturbine@hotmail.com
But, Carl. Isn't the cab on the wrong end for an AC?
I will try to get that Boiler out this week along with the needed GS4 parts.
The Piru bridge is no longer in service but I can change that.
Here an SD45 is pulling a local consist alone.
And the guy who took his family for a "picnic" gets to enjoy some train watching too.
Fantastic work on those steamers Jason.
funny you ask that because I had a man actually argue with me that only cabforwards were AC's. I just bit my lip and kept my mouth shut, quite an accomplishment for me. This was from a visitor during our recent Fair show, you know the type, one who knows it all.
Back in the 40's & 50's I used to go to the roundhouse with my dad to "check the board" and i saw cabforwards and others on the wheel grinding track where they would winch the loco through the grinder to true up flat spots on drivers or wheels. The CF's were almost always called " backup mallets ".
SP sd70m at Belmont Shore Model Railroad Club (hope they work)
SD39 and SD38-2.
Very nice Leonard! Did you scratch build those or use a printed shell?
In all the photos in this thread there seems to be something missing.
These were all along the right of way here in New Mexico.
EBAY! One is a Charlie Hopkins SD38-2 and the other is a home grown. These are wayy beyond my ham fists to create...
Very nice, Mr. J!
Very nice Jason.
That is outstanding!!
Is that brass or one of your conversions on the Bachmann j?
Did you tell the doofus to google it? Results can be shown right there on a cell phone right in dude's face.
Probably used an old Con Cor/Kato Great Northern S2. Here is one that I kit bashed.
