    Got one o' those...a classic Athearn TrainMaster in Norfolk and Western paint, from my webpage... I've remotored it with a third generation motor and it's now awaiting white LED lighting and paint touchups.

    Miles, I'm surprised you don't have an Athearn Trainmaster in S.P.!

    Hey Deano, looks like I got your Trainmaster's twin brother! Grovemont Rail Link rosters four examples of F-M power.

    The twin Erie-Builts, #6001-A and B. #6001-A is currently missing its horn, thanks to a careless mistake by the engineer :oops: that caused it to plow into a freight train at a junction and derail with such force than it fell off the train table to the floor.

    ...just imagine the real damage of that poor eriebuilt hitting a frieght train at 70mph, skidding on it's sside, ten falling off a 400 foot cliff onto an unusually smooth valley floor!

    ...Please excuse the rather geographically risque address, and don't worry, it's train related! :)
