    wow, You make threads for everything. Here i am, pretty much posting in the same single thread! One day i will have to get photos of my whole roster, but that day will never come, lol. It always grows, i think they learned how to reproduce.

    the layout is self aware! dang LocoNet.... (yay movie reference)


    Anyways, impressive roster, but you should sit down and finish some of these engines off!

    I wish my locos knew how to reproduce :eek: :cry: sign1

    As it stands right now, i have 23 locos. With the addition of the ones listed in the post above, that will give me 28 and i will hopefully be getting 3 more from MB Klein this week making the roster 31 :mrgreen:

    I had to sell off alot of the locos i had, in fact, i sold off about 15 of them to raise money to pay bills and such :eek: :cry: so im working on getting my roster built back up :mrgreen:

    Most of the engines i have that need to have the finishing details applied require me to buy them, and right now i just dont have the money lol. All the locos that i listed above will be for Christmas. Hopefully ill also get a job so i can start to bang some of these un-finished locos out. Most of them just need either handrails or number boards finished with decals, and to be weathered or patched for UP or BNSF. Nothing hard at all, just need to get the parts and pieces to finish them off :mrgreen:

    3. BN GP50 - #3153 - Number will re-main the same, just patched for BNSF - http://www.locophotos.com/PhotoDetails.php?PhotoID=92797
    UP

    1. SP AC4400 - #144 - Could not find original so it will be re-numbered and patched to 6189 - http://www.locophotos.com/PhotoDetails.php?PhotoID=79150

    Trust me, you don't want that many locomotives. I have about 60. its not worth it, lol. half of them collect dust because they don't have decoders. the other half make me insane because they have decoders.

    Just have enough for what you model, and maybe one or two extra to mix things up so that its not always the same locomotive.

    Okay, so i contacted Athearn about the handrails for the SD50's, SD60's, SD70M's and the SD70MAC and they said they would send me matching handrail replacements for $6.98 each :mrgreen: Hopefully i will have those soon :mrgreen:

    Up sd90/43mac

    Here is the latest addition to the roster, a UP SD90/43MAC, she wears number 8105 and will go great with 8059 (my other UP SD90/43MAC). She needs to have the details installed, KADEE #5's installed, and to be weathered

    I don't think SP ever had any AC6000CWs. I heard the BLI model is "imaginary". I think in truth they were going to, but the merger came before they got ordered, but i might be wrong.
