    I got two Proto 2000 L&N E6-A's in the mail today from a friend in Texas. They were both converted into dummy locos but the shells won't sit on the frames properly as there are no tabs on the inside of the shells. It'll be a simple matter to make some tabs from scrap. The locos are identical, right down to their numbers, 776.

    Jeffery, that E6 looks sharp:thumb::thumb: That was one of the paint schemes I was going to do my hobbytown E6 in when I was younger. This is what it looks like now:mrgreen:

    If the locomotive is pushing does that count as the tail end?

    I noticed this trailer in a contractors lot on post the other day. I've probably been driving past it every day for the last 4 years and never noticed it.

    Today's project was to rebuild and re-motor a Proto 2000 E6-A that had been stripped and made into a dummy loco. I do believe I accomplished my goal.
