Here be the freighters for my layout, although I know the Santa Fe "F" was primarily passenger. I forgot to include my forum namesake WM BL2 no82 and my Pennsy S1.

A friend asked me to add a steam loco-type pilot to his MDC boxcab diesel. He recently had it repowered and wanted to change the exterior around. We picked out a pilot casting and I mounted it along with adding rails and grabs to replace the cast-on details. The paint is Scalecoat II B&O Royal Blue. This is what I started out with....

The largest electric loco on the Hudson Electric is a GE EP5. Ten were made for the New Haven with pantographs and third rail shoes and two were made for the HE with pantographs only. Here's a look at the HE EP5 right in from the casting shop. The body is a one piece resin casting made by Branford Hobbies here in CT. The pantographs are from Overland. The body will be painted the same color as the boxcab pictured above, but will have the NY Central 'lightning stripes' scheme in grey on the sides.

Cool!  
 
I was thinking about buying the IHP EP5 ( which is apperently the same as yours, just rerun) but as it turns out, they were out of service with in months of Conrail, so it didn't fit in my time period.  that is cool stuff. I love the electric locomotives.

Here is my set fleet so far.
 
First we have Pre-Conrail :  
 
Erie Lackawanna SD45 and U34CH
 
PRR GG1, 44 tonner, and F7B
 

 
Now Conrail:
 
from the back left to the front right= F7A, GP7, GP40-2, B40-8, SD40, E33, GP38, SW1500
 

 
NJ transit (NJ DOT GG1 not pictured)
 
F40PH, GP40FH-2, ALP44, U34CH, U34CH ( patch job)
 

 
SEPTA AEM-7
 

 
Amtrak (E60CP not picutred)  
 
AMD103, HHP8, AEM7 #908, 911, (Phase III) #921 (Phase IV), Metroliner EMU, Acela express

I think that about covers all the locomotives that i still use regularly.  i do have a few others that are either junkers, really toy-like, or are so old and obsolete that they don't run.

According to the Model Train Magazine Index on the Kalmbach website, Railroad Model Craftsman published drawings and an article on kitbashing the SW1001 in the May, 1996 issue.  You should be able to find a copy in a good hobby shop, at a swap meet or directly from Carstens Publishing.

Well, thats one of many..... The one above is the outcome of 4 different manufactures to make that one RS-3. I used a Kato hood "body" and a Atlas side sill, and MDC cab, Athearn custom made handrailing. Thats just the body. The interior is something else, BUT, it'll pull the paint off the wall! I took the MDC "Super-power" frame they offered years ago, removed they're motor, and added my own Cannon double shafted motor, with my own turned flywheels, to fit the MDC shaft work and couplings, added in dirrectional lighting. I've got the numberboards to add as of yet (something I'm also creating myself, being they had marker lights attached to them all in one detail part!
 
And now.......... the next engine up to the turntable.....

The above engine came from a fellow railfan.net member, in a trade to do some work to a 2-8-0 to build the Western Maryland Scenic Railways "Mountain Thunder" #734.
 
Mike if your out there have a look at a once engine that was in your stable! All I did to it was get rid of the junk plastic handrailing Athearn supplied, added my own metal Athearn handrailing, plus all the grabirons, painted to match the prototype, and added decal numberboards as it required!  
 
Following will be a rear view of the same engine....
