Up next is 227, a Life Like 0-4-0 that I am repainting in my own livery.  
 
It has yet another Digatrax DH123 decoder, I can get them for $18 form Riders, best hobby shop EVER!
She runs good, I just need to finsh painting the loco, paint the tender, weather it, get a new headlight as the one it has gets too hot, and rebuild the dummy front coupler to be a working one. Then I need to get another DCC cab form NCE so my little brother can run her with me.

And the last two, Santa Fe GP40 3507, and Santa Fe FT 711. Both Bachman, both my fist two DCC equipped locos. When I took these pictures, 711 was leading a large freight with 3507 helping. And I was too lazy to get individual shots, and I plan to all ways have these two consisted together.
 
I have a few more small switchers, but they dont have decoders, and I dont intend to get them up an running until I finish/build my bigger layout.

- Finally got around to take some pictures. Anyway, here is Southern Pacific #9013 an SD45 sporting the unique "Elephant Ears." This was a test by SP to help with the cooling in the many tunnels and snowsheds. A few engines had these plates:

 
- Next up is an "artsy" look at my Rio Grande SD40T-2:

 
- #9013 leading a train out of the yard. The lash-up included SD45 (SP), SD45T-2 (SP), SD40T-2 (DRGW), GP30 (Chessie System), and a SD40-2 (Conrail).

 
- Finally a Grimy Union Pacific AC4400CW:

 
I have many more locomotives that I didn't get a shot of. Conrail, Chessie, and some more Rio Grande and SP. Enjoy.

Always glad to see U.P. heritage power. I see an American DE series crane in the background of the first shot, what's it's story?

Thanks. The photos were taking at the model railroad club I belong to. The crane has been sitting on the layout for 30 some-odd years before I moved it to where it sits now. I'll get some more info on it next time I'm down there.

I'll put one in here. All thats inside is a motor. And it is not where the manufacture put it. This is a TYCO consolidation I changed from tender drive to locomotive drive.

A few of the diesels not in some sort of repair. They need some minor detailing, but makes for a good "ten-foot" model at this point. Two C424's with a C420 sandwiched in, LA&L 424, 420, and WNY&P 421

After working in Alaska for a bit, I had to get some black and yellow ARR power. Lucky for me, Atlas was up to the task. 3003, 3004, and 3001 in the power pool on the Penn York mods.

I lived in the region all my life up to this year, when I moved to Georgia. Big B&P/G&W family, and WNY&P fan. NS Brosnan yard is busier than Conway, and G&W has a subsidiary here that runs high hood u-boats, so although I will miss the alco action, I won't miss shoveling wet, heavy snow.

Towny,
 
Just closed on my house , and I will gladly trade snow in for palm trees. The snow never bothered me, but I hate everything that comes with it. I hated running fire calls in the wee hours of the morning and having to spend five minutes scraping ice off the car and defrosting the windows.  After working in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana for an entire winter on the rails I realized if I never had to put a coat on again I wouldn't complain.  
 
As for the B&LE hoppers, what else would I tow behind a trio of US Steel heritage SD38's? B&LE 862 is roadworthy, J Ball 660 and DMIR 210 are "in the shop" for decoders.

BN 7927 and 7921, new heavy road power for the Penn York Railroad. I have always liked the BN scheme, they will likely just be stenciled

My only two Proto units, CR 1650 and 1685. They have yet to hit the mainline.
