    The Sagaponack Montauk & Cindys Harbor Railroad was brought into the modern era with the aquisition of these two new EMD locos, shown with a short cut of cars, on the old branch, past the steam facility.

    I was like realy tired last night and when I saw your pics I was looking at the locos and was going to ask you how you made the muddy water in the pond.Then in the next pic I relized it was your facia board. The screw head gave it away. If you look at the two locos and nothing else you'll see what I mean.:) :)

    Cool looking seen,I wish my layout would get progressing soon.

    Shamus,
    Sagaponack is a small community on the east end of Long Island, N.Y.. Montauk point is at the end of the south fork of the island. Cindys Harbor is a variation of Cundys Harbor, Maine, at the time of naming the railroad, Cindy and I were married. We've been divorced nine years now. I worked too hard creating the logo to change the name now. I may revert the "unlogoed" steam era back to Sagaponack Montauk.

    mrgooch,
    I didn't mention the model EMD.
    I made them, kitbashed from Athearn and Rail Power.
    The cost of locos, shells, and detail parts was about $80 U.S. each.
