    It's that time again for those of you that wish to post your favorite photos.

    Back to the Future....

    HOtrainman:wav: , it looks like your really making some progress:thumb:

    Back to the Future....(A mini Roll-By)
    Well the Rock Valley Sub has been back dated to 69-79, but every so often it goes "Back to the Future":eeki: :119: (here and now:winki: ).

    7:15AM this morning, "Big ED"(the Subs crew chief), called me up and told me to be on the outskirts of town by track #3 around 8:30AM:winki: . seems the Rock Valley Sub was in need of some BIG power, so Big ED called Proviso yard in Chicago requesting a few units:winki:, he wasn't sure what was coming, but gave me the "heads up":thumb: . sure as heck, at 8:47AM seven units, ALL GE passed by, and i was lucky enough to get pics!:winki: :mrgreen:

    the units are:
    1- AC6000
    2- ES44AC
    3- AC4400
    4- AC4400
    5- AC4400
    6- Dash-9
    7- Dash-8

    HOTrainman - Looking good :thumb: I like the CAT Excavator :mrgreen:

    Deano - FANTASTIC looking engines :eek: :thumb: :thumb:

    My favs are the AC6000, ES44AC, and the first AC4400 (grey unit) :mrgreen: :cool:

    Is that ES44AC the Tower 55 Unit? :twisted:

    Josh, the Tower55 ES44AC(see pic below) runs GREAT!:thumb: it runs smooth, crawls, good lighting effects, and the sound is good:thumb: . they come with a Digitraxx sound decoder, which is OK, but honestly, i like the QSI sound decoder in the AC6000 BETTER:winki: . the QSI sound decoder in the AC6000 does EVERYTHING the Digitraxx does in the ES44AC, but the sound in the QSI is SPOT ON!:thumb: .

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!, nutbar:mrgreen:

    Mark:wav: , WOW!!!:eeki: is that a new diorama you made? that outside shot looks AWESOME!!!:thumb::thumb::thumb: i get the feel of an early morning run:winki: . GREAT JOB!:thumb:

    OK FOLKS, LETS REALLY GET THIS THREAD GOING:winki: , COME ON, POST THOSE PICS!:mrgreen: :deano: -Deano
