Well, I said I'd be posting some pictures of my most Recent stuff, thats been completed. So, without further ado, we have a Chessie System B&O GP-30. Its a Proto-2000 model, not that I did alot to it, however, there were a few changes I made on it. The tops of the walkways "treads" were gray, and most if not all Chessie units had blue treads, so, I repainted only the walkway treads. Touched up a few nicks here and there, and relocated the horn. Then once I got all that done, I added my own custom formed metal handrailing as the original plastic stuff, just don't stick well with glue to the side sill, then custom painted it. And as I did this, I noticed that the enginner and brakeman inside the cab were unpainted and black in color so, I went ahead and painted the figures as such, and reinstalled them in the cab. And this is what it looks like now:

I forgot to mention that I also painted the trucks correctly as well! They were black, and ALL Chessie units had there trucks painted blue. And heres another shot of it.

Alittle change with roadname. A Western Maryland AS-16. Its an older Stewart model, thats went through the war. The factory plastic handrailing was broken, some sections missing. So, I custom formed metal handrailing, in all locations to fit. I also made the long hood "grab railing" that goes the length of the hood, and used steam engine brass turnings handrail posts, plus added all the other grabirons on the hoods ends as well.  
 
I added all the "extra" details that were missing, air tanks, long hood bell, etc. Then as a old Stewart unit, it had no lighting, so I added my own directional lighting to the unit, with decently made head and tail light lens. Once all this was done and the handrailing was painted, I dullcoted the entire model, except the head and tail light lens, they were added after the dullcote had dried. And the resurrected unit looks like this:

The next one for now is a Dash 8 40C in C&O paint. Again I still have a little finish work to do but I had to share. I also have three more locomotives that I am finishing and will post them as soon as I finish them. Enjoy

 
The B&O and C&O units are GREAT!! Nice job! I think the old basic blue and yellow looks better than chessie on those GEs. Nice too that you chose the C&O scheme with the yellow noses instead of the later plain blue.

  Wow. Love the lighting. And by what I can tell from this picture looks like a great layout. Would love to see more.
 
I'll post a picture or two sometime in the future.

I primarily model American and Canadian equipment, however I have recently started modeling some British steam locomotives. Here is my first UK model, a London, Brighton and South Coast Railway 0-6-0T "Terrier" in OO scale (It runs on HO gauge track, but it's 1/76th scale). It's a stock Hornby model with a few little changes, mostly involving detail painting, and a few detail parts here and there.
