    Heh, all the shots you see of my engines are from a phone. The joys of owning a Sony-Ericsson, mine has Sony Walkman & Sony Cyber-shot technology in it. :D

    You could say that I'm a UP modeller, though I'd contend that I'm an SP modeller in the UP era:) Most of my built models are in various states of storage for the time being, as I'm in somewhat of a moving situation, but I still find time to railfan & have plenty of UP pics (never enough)...

    heh, you should see some of the ones in the yards here in san antonio. you'd be surprised. thats why I heavily weathered those two models.

    this SD90MAC II is one of my favorite locomotives. Its really heavy because its all Brass. But even the Mighty 90 does not compare to the humongous DD40.

    Modeling in N-Scale, Up is my primary RR but can't post any photos as everything is in storage waiting on a new home for the layout.

    SP & ATSF are second and third.

    I prefer steam to diesel but collect both.

    Hey Josh,I just got great deal on an BLI C&NW SD40-2 so I might sell the dash-8.I'm not quite sure yet because it's a beautiful engine but I still need a quality DM&IR,CP&CN engine for my collection and only need one C&NW for now.

    Gosh Deano you have some awesome stuff there.I'm not into steam really either,but a UP Big Boy,Cab Forward or Allegheny would be pretty cool to have.Of course my dream steamer would be an DM&IR Yellowstone,but there's no such animal in plastic.

    Josh:wav: , no, i haven't seen them yet, though i read they are out, or will soon be out:smilie: . to be quite honest, since i have an F-E-F i probably WILL NOT get another one, though if i do get ANOTHER UP steamer, i guarantee you it would be the Y3:winki: , those engines look SLAP AWESOME!:up: well, perhaps a UP 2-10-2 too...:toug: :119: .
