    That last one will become a Metrolink unit too.

    Then we've got my GP39E project, rolling right along, only need two more parts, the Electrical cabinet filter box, and the Dash 2 blower housing!

    This guy is out of the Walther "woodchip truck" kit, I've always wanted one for the cab. Only commercially available International COE of that type, and Schneider had tons (still has some)!

    I never thought of a Southern SD70MAC - is there any diesel that doesn't look good in "tuxedo"?

    Who makes that bus? I see them every day in Calgary. (Not that I'm about to buy any, as I'm not likely to model Calgary, or HO at all.)
