    chessie4155- Nice engine shot:thumb:, but is it just me or are those handrails on the B&O SD7/9/whatever a little to thin? I thought at first they weren't there at all!

    Some time ago I got an Athearn BB GP50 in a trade. Since then it has undergone a few changes.

    It has gone from this ...

    and has become this ...

    Notice that the dynamic brake housing has two fans instead of one. Anybody else have a geep with this feature?

    I just finished installing Digitrax DZ125 decoders in these two husky brutes, both Athearn BB's, an F7-A and a GP50.

    Dr. Wayne, I don't believe I've ever seen that angle of your layout before. That's a nice scene.

    4 more. Up 8484 & 8483 were running back to back, on the rear of a train headed south. Cool part is it was a manned helper set, though, after summit, they're more of a manned brake sled...

    What's the scoop on the single Santa Fe pulling the single passenger car? Any clue? I tried blowing the picture up enough to read the lettering but it became pixelated before it became legible.
