    I got the DN163KOB's in these and the mars light hooked up. Thought you guys might like to see them up close.

    The AT&SF warbonnet scheme still is one of the most beautiful paint jobs ever designed for locomotives. No wonder your pics are looking great, Mike!

    But also the landscape and the trestle are really worth seeing! :thumb:

    Did you stick build the tressel or did it come in a kit? I would be interested in doing something similar.

    Those war bonnets look great, though, when you said ABBA, I had a 70s flashback. Now I got mirror balls and the tune "Dancin' Queen" bouncin' around my gourd :D
