    Hello everyone here's a shot of a engine i did 7 years ago, It's only a dummy
    Engine super detailed. I was hooked on model airplanes for the past 8 years BUT
    now it's back to what i loved as a small boy Trains.

    Enjoy

    Nice work, Steve. If that unit is an Athearn, all of the parts needed to turn that into a powered unit showed be available, despite the Horizon take-over. I did a similar conversion to a dummy Athearn GP-7 that I detailed and painted for the TH&B, although I used a Mashima can motor instead of the Athearn one.

    Thanks guys for the kind words on my engine, as far as putting power into
    it I think I will leave as a dummy engine and one day it will make it to
    the dead line as parts engine or sumthing.
