    Here are a couple quick shots of Maumee & Western's power, both past and present. I thought this could provide a little inspiration to the resident modelers on the forum. ;)

    Oooooo!!! Love those Alcos... Man, those rebuilt ATSF critters get around. I can't swing a cat in the southwestern U.S. without hittin' one of 'em...:D

    Thanks for the inspiration to take more photos and to paint some more of my N gauge fleet

    So what happened to the Alcos? Hope they weren't scraped.

    325 is rusting away in Connersville, I believe, and 442 was rebuilt by a Texas tourist shortline and now works for them.

    Thanks Brian,

    Do you know who the 325 came from? I'm glad to hear that the one working the Texas tourist line is the same one. I thought that might have been the case.

    Hi Brian,
    Those are great shots,, you now I remember when steam was being replaced (just a few years ago:( )
    Modelers then upset and saw no future in diesal modeling.
    How wrong they were, they are beutiful and so graceful when on the move.

    Happy Modeling:D :D :D :D
