It was Confederate Gray and yellow, and based in Texas. I want tiger stripes, in California.
Isn't one of those big centercabs preserved? IRM?
Only one. The SSW unit was traded in for a U25B. The only California units were sold to thee Trona and the A.T.S.F.
It's the Atlas.
Have you ran both?
Oh yeah, I have a couple of the Bachmann S-4's: (I renumbered them and added a few details)
Sought after, yes. The Frisco only had the one SW1.
These S-2 (of S-4) Northeast Oklahoma switchers would be sought after by me too.
How large are those Frisco switcher photo files?
They load at a crawl on Firefox and give Chrome a case of the "Aw, snaps".
This one has turned into one of my favorites. It has a TCS Z2 decoder, independent lighting on the cab and hood, Kato brass worms and assorted details. It runs beautifully.
My most sought after switchers are Milwaukee 44 tonner, S2, FM 10-44 and an SW1. I have the 44 tonner done and the SW1 is awaiting paint and details into #864.
I almost forgot a Milwaukee MP15AC which I have a shell for.
ATL-40000709 N scale ATLAS S2 Switcher bought from
Fifer Hobby http://www.fiferhobby.com/html/atlas_s2.html
Wow, that's a good looking switcher.
SWEET!!! Wow. Wish I could still do that kind of detailing!
Ha Ha Haw Haw.
Good looking switchers.
Actually, SW-1s are for sale right now in stores, made by Hornsby/Arnold. Excellent models, according to thereviews online.
I don't have the switcher I want, but all I can say it was produced in HO by Athearn...
a Santa Fe GP7u, with Topeka Cabs... as SF didn't really have many modern switchers...
Here they are in N Scale
4 of my logging diesels, the 2 SW1200s have CanFor style nood top dynamic brake housings and air tanks. Made from LL Sw9 hoods on Bachmann mechs (not happy with the LL mechs)
My FM H10-44. Shapeways shell on an Atlas VO1000 mech.
Finally, my Rangast Whitcomb 65 tonner on Tomy chassis (with Milwaukee exhausts lol)
Sorry that it's a bit blurry.
Still in the works is an SW900 with dynamis brakes and a plain SW1200. These will go on Bachmann NW-2 mechs too. oh, I also have a 70 tonner and next purchase will be a Bachmann S-4, might look into doing a GHQ T-6 conversion on it, if the hood will fit that is....
I was looking at them last night...
