    Cool photso guys!

    My E60MA project is rolling. I made the number boards and other cab details, then painted it. Tommorow i should have the decals and everything on it! I've also just about finished powering the chassis, so those will be rolling as soon as i get decoders for them.

    Great pics, guys. I really enjoy this week’s thread.

    Sorry, nothing special from me this week, only a proof that I am busy working on my layout. I started to scratch build this small warehouse (on the right) yesterday.

    Nice Chessie trains everyone!

    all of my first equipment was Chessie. My first set was a Lionel O-27 C&O 4-4-2 with Chessie system cars (and one CB&Q gondola). My first HO locomotives were life like Chessie GP38-2s.

    It looks like though, since then, i've improoved my modeling skills, and moved slightly up north some.

    Still, Locomotives Like my E60MA probably used to go down to Chessie territory (hey, the NEC goes through Baltimore!), so maybe not so much! I have finished painting and decaling it. I just need to start gathering details and to put all the parts on it!

    Dear Chris
    Nice job on the Erie commuter locomotives. Here are some pictures taken in 1978 at Dover NJ. I thought you might enjoy seeing them.
