    Deano, your FGE car looks great and I hope you still got enough sleep tonight :) . The pace your thread is developing is breathtaking, I had a lot to read after beeing absent for three weeks. Thank you for your tutorial on detailing – I found some good advice there.
    I spent three weeks on the french island Corsica in the Mediterranian sea, and to my surprise they have a narrow gauge railroad running small passenger trains. It is called the Chemins de fer de la Corse. We stayed in a house that was only 30' away from the track. But the biggest surprise were the marks on the side of the rails : ILLINOIS 1919 USA. So you see, no need to take a trip to the US, we have it all over here sign1 .

    I think that it looks even better than it did before. I compared the 2 and the inda ink wash just simply can't be left out of weathering. I noticed a differance on the ladders, doors/rails, and steps. Great jod Deano!!:thumb: :thumb:

    lol, i'm going to cry. I just got an Amtrak (phase 2 paint) AEM-7, which was worth it, but i also picked up an NS SD80MAC for a little less then full price (but with a decoder in it) and it took me 6 hours to attach all the details.

    I think most railroads run the AC locomotives up front for some reason relating to wear and maitenance. Which ever has a working cab is usually used, and if not that, then which ever train is on the head end. It actually doesn't matter. I've seen GP38-2s leading SD80s and C40-8Ws on big double stack trains.
