    So the 2222 is in the dip so I can give it a new coat of blue with white trim and graphics

    As I've finally figured out what didn't look right with the yellow

    More to come when I can get a break from work lots of hours right now

    TTFN y'all

    So got a replacement dynamic brake housing to make it more in line with a standard GP38

    As the GP38's with the old oil bath filters had a tendency to catch on fire

    Why a lot of them received air filter box upgrades later in their careers

    So found the paint formula from a DT&I modeler

    So this GP38 will become an O.S. unit

    Now that's a locomotive that didn't just get beaten with the ugly stick, it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. I can't wait to see a model of it!

    Well Vince,
    I got that SD9-3 boxed up for the trip, threw in a few extras for you. You will need to fab whatever antennas you want on it tho. I threw in a motor some modified motor mounts and drive lines for you too. they installed wheel slip recorders on every axle on this and all those parts are there too. The glazing for the cab windows may be hard to see but they are there. New wheel sets too. I will get it headed your way monday morning.
    Please PM me your address so it gets headed in the right direction.

    So with a major territorial modeling change and with the restricted space i have for a layout I'm going to make do but with 3 levels the only region I'm able to model decently

    Is the Appalachian region which allows my transition to be better well disguised in places

    This will take me to modeling somewhere West Virginia influenced with coal trains double track along with intermodal trains also going high hood

    On the Indian Rock Side of the merger Roster and high and low hoods on the Rowelsburg Southern Side of the roster

    This will also have an effect on the roads I pool with

    Thanks to @jimfitch for the newest oldy but good for the roster

    Ph3 GP9 which will go into IRRY colors
