    Yep!...But the picture I took is only four months old.
    The pic in the link is three years old.

    Its been stripped out and closed off since then.

    I see the tail end of a Conrail loco. How about a whole Conrail loco. A GP35.

    Crap!....Wrong button!

    Anyway, before I accidently deleted my message cause I forgot to post the pic.........

    Not to be picky Jeff....I think its a GP 40. All the fans on the radiator section are the same size. On the GP 35, the middle fan was smaller.

    With that said...
    CSX GP40.

    I don't have an overhead of it in Conrail paint but here it is in L&A paint.

    The middle fan is definitely smaller.

    Yep, I'm betting that's an old Athearn GP35.... the details are a little clunky by today's standards...

    ... so to split the difference between Jeff's GP35 and 88's CSX GP40?... a C&O GP35 at St. Thomas, ON?

    *edit* Geez! I hate when people post while I'm posting! :curse:

    At least this time I didn't get scooped on the model type!

    If you're refering to mine - Bachmann. And it's no longer a GP35 as such. It's been modified to 6 axles for use on lighter rail and is now what my shop calls a GP35/S6.

    Its a Bachmann! Thats explains it. I read in a Model Railroader Product Review a few years back that the middle fan was the wrong size for the GP35. Also something about it being too high on the chassie. Actually, if I remember right, Model Railroader totally hacked the Bachmann GP35 on details.


    OK......GP35.
    This one gave up its rear truck for my F59PHI. Its now a "dummy".

    OK...I'll be the first to admitt I made a mistake.
    But compare the hieght of the middle fan on Jeffery's Bachmann GP35, compared to the hieght of the middle fan on my twenty-five year old Athearn Blue Box, and you can see why I erred in the identification.

    I can see how it can be a very easy mistake to make. On these Bachmann models you have to look very close.
