    Mikelhh needed some motive power quickly, so he pressed this grimy ATSF SD26 into service before it hit the paint shop:

    Wolfgang Dudler spotted a carload of lumber at the Salina lumberyard--think of how much benchwork for your layout you build with that much lumber!

    That's it for this week, folks! :D

    Wow look at GPA's wide scenery:thumbs_up:

    Thanks for choosing mine.

    Mr B it's an ex Santa Fe unit that Guilford couldn't be bothered to repaint, based on prototype photos. Guilford purchased a bunch of them, and a couple of units even died before being repainted. Something I've always wanted for the layout :tb-biggrin:

    You can just see the blue line through the name in this shot:

    Fantastic choices this week!

    That Aerotrain must be impressive in 1/8 scale.

    Mike, that SD26 looks like it got caught in a sewage plant spill... LOL... nice work - it's gorgeously filthy.

    Ralph, welcome to Trainboard! Even though Espee never had AC6000's, I'm guessing in your world the SP took over UP, and gave all their Armour Yellow engines a Bloody Nose? :D:D:D

    Actually you're right, I new this, but apparently no one told Broadway Limited when they issued this version. I saw this issue and knowing that they were wrong I had to have it anyway.
    Thanks
