    Here's an old Mantua Tyco F unit with an Athearn drive system and a Digitrax DZ125 decoder.

    Oh my, looks like a UB SD40-2 tagged along when this covered hopper headed west.

    My recent "loot" from eBay. I snagged the UB SD40-2 and Eric was kind enough to throw in a covered hopper too! So far I plan to run this unit tied to a BNSF SD70MAC. The last article I read on the UB, when he switched to GE there was a write up about BNSF MAC's coming through on coal trains. My version of "history" has it that the SD40-2 (which are no longer on coal service according to Eric) was a trade, hour for hour for use of a BNSF Mac. Now that the UB has caught up movement wise, the Mac & the SD40-2 came west...

    I don't think so ( it would be overdone ) but I save the picture because in just 1 picture you have all the variations of the rust color . Some kind of " the rust wheel color" :)

    Thanks for the picture

    jeffery-Man, that is one sorry looking baggage car, is it still owened by the KCS? If so, why don't they restore it and tag it on their executive train? Fully restored, it would look right at home behind that F unit they have running.
