    Yuppers. The closer one has the beginnings of its super detail added, a Details West kit. Just needs MU, coupler bars, ditch lights and some minor weathering...

    Man Smoke, care to move to San Diego, and lend a hand...? In exchange for running on my non-existent layout, that is.

    Chessie 4155-Love the u-boat in the middle. I'd almost buy a U25B, but i think most were retired on conrail (although i do have a picture of one working with a U23B in the area i model... i see an oppertunity)

    Herc Driver- Wow! It took me a minute to realize that was N scale! excellent photography!

    UP SD40-2- Nice SD60! I think the new camera is working out pretty good. You should see if it has a video function, and take some video of some of your sound equipped locos over a grade crossing or something.

    Skipgear- thats a brilliant steam engine! the detail is fine!

    Skipgear - great locomotive! I'm surprised only the center driver is bald...is this per prototype or modeling concession?

    It is concession to make it around my 11" radius test loop. After building it and fine tuning the rest of the drivers, I think I may have been able to leave the flange on. The final layout should have a 14" minimum.

    Here is a video of it running:

    That looks to short to be an SD38... that wouldn't happen to be an SDL39? maybe i'm just crazy... I probably am!

    Models of 1900:

    wow, that equipment looks great!

    With those trucks, it's actually an SD38-2, thus longer than an SD38. It does look a little short, but it must be an illusion.
