Mantua GP20.  
 
While the EL never had one, I like to speculate that if the EL survived longer, it may have rebuilt and chop nosed some GP7's.  
 
BTW - It is a good pulling engine.

NEFAN:
 
Nice lineup of engines!  
 
I like the eastern emphasis-fits in well with my interests, too.
 
Your what-if on the EL GP7 is interesting.  I don't mind plausible what-ifs at all.

Alan - Thanks. I grew up with the D&H and EL. The D&H RS36 was the first loco I ever rode.
 
That's one of the great things about modeling. You can rewrite history!  
 
I just got my Rivarossi Erie Mikado back in action. Not the best puller, but it does look nice.

struggling uphill on a 4% grade and a 30 inch curve, with 24 cars on the drawbar is a 2-4-4-2 mallet.  its about as small as an articulated can be and as cute as a button.
 

 * this is one very nice little articulated locomotive. I like it alot.

Nice one!  I like that PRR scheme on a modern loco!  Don't those pinstripes look good!
 
I've been off on vacation; that's why I haven't responded before this.

Alan. I though that loco would fit nicely in the what if catagory.

Those stripes are nice, but unfortunately, things didn't happen that way.

Nice shots-I like the modeling scenes the locos are in.  Now, about that Amtrak paint scheme on the GG1....and the E44....are you modeling the early Conrail era?

Yup!  I love that time period, as well as electric railroading. there is a lot of variety and few people model it (at least few people model it well).    
 
Unfortunately, I'm trapped on a layout that i built when i was 13-14, and my club won't let me electrify!  
 
because my layout isn't perfect, i haven't decided if i want to finish the catenary for it, or just build a module.   I think some of the catenary towers (less wires) are visible in the pictures.  
 
Right now i'm looking for BLI Conrail GG1s, but haven't had much luck.

Green Elite:
 
I like the module idea to have the catenary and supports.  Then you can detail it for an approprate NE Corridor spot and shoot photos of your equipment.
 
I built a module at one time-kinda fun way to stay interested in the hobby.  I had the equipment and scenery materials but being newly married in a small apartment  
meant that a layout was not possible at that time.
