    Ahh, just added a Lightning bolt Dash 9...

    Just a plain Blue Box unit, DW plow added and painted, painted handrails, and darkened grills, all done by previous owner.

    My UP interests are in the 1950s - attached are a few pictures of most of my UP locomotive fleet. All are sound-equipped, and the 2 ABBA Alco sets tend to raise the roof a bit when they power up:

    im also going to say this,
    KATO IS BRINGING OUT THE SD70ACe's!!! (N-scale, if it were HO id be talking like this lol)
    i cant wait to own a KATY, MOPAC, SP, WP, UP lol, Rio Grande, C&NW (BNSF to make the game equal....) lol

    and also also, ordered a sound decoder for my SD70M today, got one heck of a bargain too....can you say $61? lol
    and a Frisco FA-1 (Atlas/Roco 1978 for a meer $10....hey isnt that reasonable since its a ALCo.?

    We had our monthly O scale meeting at a new member's house. He is rebuilding his O Scale layout. He models UP only. This is some of his engines, sorry picture intensive.
