    Dean, I'm just guessing at this one, but the loco in question is either an RS-10 or an RS-18. I'm leaning towards this one being an RS-10, which was basically an RS-3 with a different body style, and perhaps some internal upgrades. They were built in 1956 and were rated at 1600 hp. The RS-18 looked very similar (I think that the air intakes along the upper edge of the hood were a bit different), but was rated at 1800 hp. They were built in 1957-58, and both CNR and CPR owned both types. Professor Nutbar owns at least one of each (CNR, of course). The models were done by LifeLike Canada, and were available in both CPR and CNR, and, if I recall correctly, several different paint schemes correct for those roads.
    Here's a picture of the two together. The RS-10, like an RS-3, was set up to run long hood forward, so I'm almost positive that 3632 is an RS-10. You can see how the air intakes are just a bit different on the 3079.
    EDIT: If you check further on in this thread, you'll see that my guess on these two units was wrong: the 3079 is an RS-10, while 3632 is the RS-18. Both of these units were set-up to run long hood forward. Sorry for the mis-information.

    What a difference weathering makes :thumb:
    I like the way those locos are weathered because to often weathering goes out of hand but these are weathered just right. Not to much nor to little :)
    I love it!

    Amazing. Just the right amount of weathering the good doctor can create. Either that or he's leaving them outside for a few years to make them look that naturally accurate.

    Outstanding job.

    HA HA...not to imply anything about the time it takes you to weather that well...only to make the comparison that you can somehow accurately capture what takes the elements years to create.

    By comparing to photos on http://cnlines.ca/CNcyclopedia/loco/mlw/mlw_rs.php 3632 is an early-production RS-18 like http://cnlines.ca/CNcyclopedia/loco/mlw/img_cn3672fl.jpg 3079 is an RS-10 with dynamic brakes in the long hood like http://cnlines.ca/CNcyclopedia/loco/mlw/img_cn3091fl.jpg

    You're absolutely right, Triplex. The only reference book that I had on hand was an old Rail Canada Volume on CPR diesels. The photos show both RS-10 and RS-18 units, but I mis-read which was which, leading to my mis-identification. :oops: :oops: Personally, I couldn't tell the difference if I were run over by one, although, I guess by then it wouldn't make much difference anyway. :rolleyes: :D :D
