    Along time ago in this forum I posted pictures of an In-Progress U23B I was working on!

    Here are the completed model photographs! Have to show some Motive Power from back East!

    Note, this locomotive was designated to run long hood first (PC president at that time was an ex-Southern guy) but it did have dual controls so it could be run in any direction. Also this was the only group of PC locomotives that had sun shades.

    Another BNSF SD40-2 Well that is what BNSF calls it anyway. A RRP shell all kinds of details and Rail Details handrails see thru fans and so forth.

    My Jupiter and 119 are AHM locomotives. I modified and painted a Genoa and Reno. Thanks for the "Like"

    Here is the last BN SD40-2 in that consist anyway. I counted and there are another 10 in BN paint I still need to photo, and get recorded/cataloged. I never counted them all up before, certainly one of my favorite modeled locos for sure and they just run 4 ever too, a little oil every few years and they just keep going.

    It was not at all uncommon to see SCL power pooled with Frisco power. Here is a Genesis GP40-2, the SCL 1651, a little east coast power, I always liked the slogan.

    Seaboard Coast Line is acceptable but the Seaboard System, CSX and BN does not exist in my world. I used to abhor the PC but it has grown on me that I like it a lot now, and I agitate my fellow club members by running as much PC as I can!

    I never tire of seeing western US stuff, especially pre-mega-merger era. But it is really nice seeing this eastern and east coast power.

    Here is some real Eastern Power by Baldwin! Centipedes!

    [​IMG]

    Although failures in Passenger Service, by cutting the horsepower to 5,000 HP from 6,000 HP the Pennsy got their money's worth in helper service over Horseshoe Curve. The major maintenance item was changing the brake shoes on all those wheels as they did not have dynamic brakes.

    Here's an East and West pair. After Pearlman left the Grande he went to run the NYC. In my interpretation of history, A. E. Pearlman sent a pair of RF-16s to the Grande for testing... NYC RF16.jpg
