    Steve in WV, use your imagination with these, I look license as it were. I dont know one engine from the other so they might look like almost any thing. I built 3 or these sheds to go with my saw mills I told you about:

    Repainting below a "stealth" CSX deisel.

    An other repaint I think or maybe it was ready made. I painted 5 or six so it is hard to tell with them stored away.. What engine is this, they all look the same to me.

    Below 2 CSX S 2's from ebay I got the decals there also.

    Some hoppers and a wood shed getting weathered and some dul coat.

    I remove the trucks & spay a little red primmer on them and sometimes on the bottom of the car.

    Ebay has supplied me with more cars than I can ever use,:rolleyes: I have about 50 hoppers and hald as many tankers.

    #6934 is a GE B40-8. #311 and #1200 definitely aren't Alco S-2s. #1200 is an EMD SW1, and #311 is some other EMD switcher.
