    I picked this Bachmann GP40 up in Alexandria yesterday. It was built as 6 wheel pickup and 4 wheel drive. I rebuilt it last night so it's 8 wheel pickup and 8 wheel drive.

    Very nice. I love the cop car tucked in by the bill board.

    This photo was taken with an AIPTEK VGA pinhole camera. Not bad considering the technology.

    Got my new camera and I'm having a good old time learning how to use it. Here's a few samples:

    Here's the project I chose to do today. Seems I have this UP dummy GP40 locomotive. I want to put it in consist behind my two SDP40F's but at 1.5 ounces it's much too light for that.

    I removed the shell exposing the empty plastic frame within.

    I then packed the frame with modeling clay to give the loco a weight of 5.5 ounces.
