    I have never really paid attention to steam stuff :oops: but my grandfather loves the steam era, I will have to be sure to show him this thread. These are just flat out AWESOME, :thumb: there is so much detail in them.

    My fav is the last pic, #3736, I just cant believe the amount of detail that are in those beautiful locos. :eek: :eek:

    Thanks for the pics Nutbar :mrgreen: :thumb:

    thanks josh---i appreciate your comments---actually #3736 started out as an athearn genesis undecorated usra light mike---the cn had 57 of these locomotives comprising of classes s-3-a/b/c---these engines were originally built for the grand trunk western,but many ended up in canada---Doctor Wayne is responsible for the transformation---just another example of his outstanding talents
