Always loved that paint on a hood unit! Sure is purty!
Still hate you, Wolf... lol
Thanks!! Love ya man!!
I'm coming down for the NASCAR race in two weeks...you're lucky I don't have any spare time to come calling. Fear not, my parents live down there so I will be coming down to visit again.
Ah yes -- a visit to Fontana -- outstanding. We will be camping that weekend. A visit from you will be most welcome.
what did you use for the silver, on the Fs, to match the MicroScale decals?
Floquil "Old Silver" -- not sure if there is a new version of it.
Thanks...I still have three bottles each of 'old' and 'bright' silver...it looks to be a real good match.
Wolf, quick question: what decal set did you use for your Golden State E7 units? I can't seem to find a match from any of the Microscale sets.
I used: N Scale - Southern Pacific / Cotton Belt E-Unit and PA Diesels (1950-1958) Diesel - Cabs -- Stock# 60-50
I painted both the red and orange (Of course the black on the roofs) then added the stripes (decals) and lettering.
Ok thanks much!
An SP moment on the test track
Your "gathering of widows" looked like they needed some more in the support group, so I offer my 2 cents. Very nice widows BTW.
Awesome - Carl.
My next what if/should be locomotive is going to be an SD70ace (My version of an SP heritage scheme) -- painted in black widow. I like your GE's -- they are much better looking than UP's goofy Daylight heritage scheme. Your GE black widows are my inspiration.
Wow thanks Wolf, coming from you that is quite a compliment. Much appreciated. Yes I will be doing another 1or2 of the GE's or SD-70 Ace's.
My father was a hoghead for 42 years on the "Old T&NO" and then the newer "T&L Lines". I can remember very clearly the arrival of the "Widows" when I worked the PFE docks. My father actually allowed me to start a 100 car train out from under the docks for 1/2 mile only, teaching me how not to get a knuckle or bounce the caboose, but what a thrill. (California cantaloupes) headed to East Coast. I was all of 18. What a real thrill with an A,B,B,A set. Real railroading and it has never left my blood stream.
You are very welcome!! Outstanding, looking forward to seeing them!!
Thank you, what a great memory you have shared!! I can only imagine the thrill and excitement you had driving a set of F units. WOW!!
Finished up some H24-66 Train Masters:
