Your stuff is looking good Joe. 752 is looking really good after the new paint. I hope I'll get a chance to model the BRW like you did

So guys, what do you think of this engine posing in for a model of 752? The Lionel GP-7I hope to buy this engine when Iím done with a train for 89 and have 752 pulling freight
 

 
And I hope to get this caboose  and model the BRW caboose as well

Looks like a good idea to me. just renumber it and change some paint and reletter it, yeah I think it will look pretty good.

Duh, of course you have to paint/re letter it, that is part of the fun. And why I buy unlettered trains for On30.  
 
 Anthony, to answer you or to ask my own question(talking about the deisl), . Did Joe tell you about this idea? Because I am pretty sure I mentioned it to him a few moths a go. Regardless apears to be a great model, the whole 9 yards. It is technically a GP-7 and not a GP-9 like the 752, the BRW has a GP-7 though, but they both look about the same to me. 752 actually has a bell on her short hood side above the head lights that this model does not have, but that can be added. Since it is a preproduction photo it is hard to say how much it really looks like 752, so in the end it is a thought call only you can make.
 
The caboose, is an idea I had not thought of but it  would need kit bashing in order to be correct. The chimneys on the roof are wrong but that is not really a big deal. The big deal is that the cupolas, or what ever you call it on this type of caboose, is too big see for your self. Remember it all depends what you think and how real you want it to look.

That is true, repainting it is fun, and I got practice from my caboose
 
SGP, No Joe did, but I think it was said, here already. I was just going through the book and thought a diesel to go with my steamers would be nice. Iím also becoming a diesel fan after my BRW ride My parents really like these engines as well, esspely my dad since we rode it.
 
Iím hopping the real, model will look like the concept model, but the only thing I will do is adding the bell, that is not a big thing.
 
And for the caboose I think I would just leave it, (but redo it of course). I think this is a pretty good model for me as well. Letís just see if I change my mind. I still have allot of money to save
 
Thanks for your input
Anthony

That one is a WHOLE lot better. I canít believe I did not think of it. What makes it worse is I was trying to talk my brother into getting that some caboose (he wants the Hudson)
Thanks so much Joe, I never would of thought of that. First I will (if I can find one) and Pennsy 4-4-2 for the SRRís 7002 and then Iíll get the diesel for the BRW. Since this has not come out yet it will be around for a few years. The Steamer has been out for a while so I should get that first,
