    You were correct Dale, no motor in the one SD40-2. It has caused me to do some online searching/shopping. Haha

    Hey Colt,

    we need to get together. I have some new motor mounts, and I need to get you the drive shafts and what other gears you need. I will look in my parts drawer, I may have a motor stashed in there. It should have the brass flywheels as well.

    they ought to look pretty good in SKOL black and yellow. I will send you a link to the place that has the SKOL decals as well.

    you have to admit though, it was pretty easy to take them apart for stripping and paint. We ought to get together on road numbers so we can consist them up sometime.

    Had fun today, glad you could join us. We will be seeing you soon on the POCR!

    While searching for reference pics I came across this picture. Might have some HO scale excursion trips turning at the POCR! Thanks for the invite, always fun to attend an operating session.

    Out bound road crossing from BKEP, this will link up with the entrance to Gavilon East and the scale building. This section will be concrete.I will build up ballast to simulate a gravel shoulder and add a guard rail to the outside. Then I can finish the grass and move on down the side to the life out bridge. Progress being made slowly.
