    CNWman: It kinda looks like a FA. The rear truck looks like a 2 axle type, It's hard to tell , and it looks a little short. I thought PAs were longer and were six axle..:confused:

    GAHHHHHH!!!!! You could be right, chessie. I can't tell the difference between the two most of the time, and I can't really see the axel type on it.

    Got some more work done on the module. I glued down the warehouse, office, guard shack buildings, 2 of the 3 bumping posts and also added some piping in.

    Those grand canyon locos are actually FPA-4. Basically, it is an FA that is a few feet longer to accomodate a steam generator for passenger service. The railway used to have 5 operable units, 3 As and 2 Bs. I am not sure if they still use all 5. During the spring, it is pretty common to see a 15 car train with an ABA or an ABB set up front - pretty cool. They have some F40s now, and I am not sure how many of them they use, but the eventual goal was to use the F40s instead of the ALCos because they can pull more cars.

    Ooops! Obviously, I don't have a clue as to which is which. I just took the info right off of the hobby shops site. Either they could not find an FPA-4 to custom paint or the FA-2 was close enough and so they used that one. I dunno... speculation at this point.
