    I am not sure but at some point I think some asked about my photo props or what I used. So here is the info:

    I am using a Sony Cybershot 4.1 Mega Pixel camera. My lighting is 3 old table lamps with 100 watt bulbs. The back ground is two pieces of foam board painted light blue.

    That's a nice shot! Beautifully detailed loco with the grills, the hoses, the sun shade on the side window.... I like the weeds by the crossbuck too!

    Ralph; it is a Life Like Proto 2000, these are sweet engines. They look great and run smooth and quiet. I wish they would come out with a GP40/-2. We have 2 of these GP38-2s CR & L&N, 1 GP7 B&O Chessie and 1 U28B L&N. The only thing I don't like about them is they do not run well on DC with Athearn or Atlas engines, they have a slower gear ratio I guess . They do run well with my Bachmann Spectrums. I'm guessing that P2K and Bachmann Spectrums have about the same gear ratio...
