    I wanted to share with you a picture of the new USA-trains SD40. This model was weathered and detailed by Mac Calla of CA. Myself have 2 CSX ones on which I have to put ditch lights , some other minor detail and weathering of course.

    Great pic Paul. [​IMG]

    Alan, I'll withhold comments about the BNSF and weeds just to keep Maxwell out of here. [​IMG]

    Yes the weeds, Mac has built a diorama for presenting his locomotives. He also weathers, shays, climaxes etc.. and I think that the intention the diorama was built was for presenting those steamers.

    If this would have been the general condition of the trackwork of BNSF then I think BNSF would have been bought by Conrail [​IMG]

    Paul: The diorama was the first one I grabbed when I took the photo of my engine. I have about 8 of them here and forgot to find a more suitable one but I never really care anyway unless it's for a magazine. I have about 500 photo's here in my jpg file so if there's something you want, I probably have either kitbashed it or scratchbuilt it at one time or another. Mac [​IMG])

    Alan, that's all well and good but unfortunately this engine happens to be a USA G Gauge engine, 1/29th scale. You could probably hide an N gauge engine in the cab !!

    <font color="3333ff">Yeah, Mac, I probably could [​IMG] I still wonder why they picked 1:29 scale, instead of the 'correct' 1:32. I guess it was to try and capture the #1 scale folks, along with the G scale ones. (somewhere in the middle!).

    I am aware of the size of these models, as my business is building brass #1 scale locomotives, although this is rapidly being superceded by my N scale items [​IMG]

    Mac, a warm welcome to <font size="4">THE</font> board!</font>

    Alan,

    I never understood why the British choose for OO instead of HO [​IMG]

    <font color="3333cc">Paul, neither do I!!

    We have 4mm scale instead of 3.5mm, 7mm for O scale, instead of 1/4" and 10mm fo #1 scale instead of 3/8"

    We just have to be different from the rest of the world [​IMG] </font>

    Thank's. I go to Germany every year and stay with a friend in Dernbach and usually go to Regnor's shop to check out the live steamers, cool stuff but out of my budget. You build brass engines, must me nice to have the talent, I just dirty things up after you make them nice. Hope all is well across the pond and stay in touch. Mac [​IMG])
