last but not least my metroliners again.    
 
the only other 2 locomotives not to get in here are  my Acela ( which i'm terrified to move because it might explode or something) , an old AHM New Haven C-liner, and a  TYCO Bicentenial Alco C-430 ( both of which are missing parts and or are dissassembled.)

Yo Chris,
 
Yup, that green light on your E-33 is one of the marker or classification lights. Looks like it is only paint. I would drill out the green part, and cement in a green rhinestone, in each side. Then watch the engine light up with those jewels as she runs around on the layout. If the headlight has no lit bulb behind the lens, I would do the same with a suitably sized "diamond" rhinestone. The Roundhouse people make such jewels for the various gauges.

That's a sharp loco there John.  Very well done!
 
Good shots all around everybody.  I'll have to post pics of my locos when I get them unloaded off the digital.  I model a little more modern.  I've got an NS GP-38 HH, an NS 8-40B, and a CR SD-50.  Not alot I know, but I've just started buying locomotives.  Modelling growing up was just with my dad's small collection of old HO stuff that we could get out only for Christmas around the tree.  But now that I'm out making money (HA! Hard to do with college costs these days!) I'm getting my own stuff.
 
I'll try to get them up tonight.

Indeed it is an Atlas.  Here is a shot of it, the Silver Series by Atlas.

One more of the "front" end.  On the rear is the NS Dash 8-40B.

Here's the Conrail SD-50.  This one is an Athearn Genesis.  It's a nice locomotive, but it can't compare to those Atlas models.  They run so quietly and have so much detail on them.

Here's the Dash-8 by itself so you can see the front detail.  The best part of these two NS locos... The engineers are installed to run long hood forward!

And finally, a shot of my NS GP-38 with four new hopper cars and an N&W caboose that was recently repainted as a "heritage car" by the NS shops.  Gotta love being able to model

Here's my Tyler County Traction Alco S1 #16. It started out as an undec. and was painted with Polly Scale Maroon and lettered with Rail Graphics custom decals and Micro-Scale stripes. It has a NCE Decoder and Northwest Shortline semi-scale width wheelsets.
Yes there was a Tyler County Traction.... No, they never had any diesels. The electric railway was gone before 1939. It ran between Sistersville, Middlebourne and New Martinsville and St Marys, WV. If you look real hard between Sistersville and Middlebourne and Sistersville and St Marys you can still make out some of the old ROW.
This Locomotive is my could have been.

My "modernized" Amtrak E-60CH, No. 609, originally No. 951.  FYI, the REAL 951 was renumbered 609.

FP-7's 900-903.  Originally, both of these units were numbered 906.  The real No. 900 is owned by the Reading Tech Society, the 903 is owned by the Philly Chapter, NRHS.  In real life, the 903 is paired with the Lancaster Chapter's 902.
