    Post for Trainboard and Gauge


    Hi, all,

    I've been very busy and no time to be posting to the multiple forums. However, a few minutes available today, so here's a few posts for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

    ==================

    The former ATSF's Peavine Line is still heavily trafficked even in modern times. Here we see a pair of Santa Fe 'Super Fleet' C44-9W's with a stack train headed up the Abierto Cutoff grade:

    ===================

    And as for Southern Pacific

    Southern Pacific liked to run 4-unit lashups of SD7s and SD9s in the mid 1950s, befitting SP's desire to load a train to the hilt with tonnage and then drag it over the road with brute tractive force:

    Santa Fe 'Super Fleet' C44-9W's with a stack train are one of my favorite combo's. I really love that shot! I like whole layout with the bridge too :)
