    Des-3 # 1539

    :thumb:No problem It's a custom brass import from Japan in HO. I don't know when It was imported:confused: ,But I picked it up at a train show about 6 years ago.

    The NYC purchased the Tri powered DES-3's around 1900 for Manhattan's west side line because they could run off there diesel engines , 3rd rail pickup , or battery power. (kind of sounds like today's green goat and gen-set switchers. You can see it's not a new idea.) The lack of smoke from the diesel exhaust allowed them to run inside buildings and beat New York's clean air laws. They lasted all the way to the Penn central merger.

    The model is stock, I did the paint and lettering. I recently burnt up the motor:curse: so it's on the dead line right now. It will probably receive a large can motor because the shell is mostly hallow.:twisted:

    I'm reworking a section of my layout that has some scenic challenges because of hidden track on two levels that are close together. The large gray structure is a rough draft of a warehouse or a big factory. The tunnels below it are new and help hide some lower level tracks. Needs more work but its an improvement over the previous arrangement...

    Interesting. With this modern equipment, the boxcar blends in in a way express boxcars never did.

    Correction on my DES-3 post .They were built in 1930 not 1900. 35 were built by general electric for the central.
