It's not all NYC. There are some private roadnames on the railroad as well.

A Norfolk & Western SD-40 and an SD-40-2. These both started out as Athearn Blue Box locomotives and recieved Cannon & Company, Details West, Details Associates, and Railflyer Models detail parts. Both units have traction motors and full air line piping.

Other than painting, lettering, weathering and a coal load, I didn't need to further modify this Proto 2000 Heritage 0-6-0.
 

 
Here are a formerly undecorated Stewart RS3 and an Athearn SW1 now dressed up for the Jersey Central.

*  My next Locomotive is a CNJ Suburban, 0-4-0c #15 the Wasp. The "c" is CNJ's designation for a saddle tank type. ( a side tank would have been "s".) The prototype was made by Grant locomotive Works, of Patterson NJ. It was built in December of 1869. It was sold to the F.W.McN. in October 1897.
F.W.McN. is listed as Frank W. McNeal, of New York. McNeal could have been a Locomotive Broker, buying and selling locomotives. I dont know if that means it was kept running, or Scraped.  
* It had a sister locomotive the Hornet, #14. The only major difference between my model, that was made by Silvine, in Japan (new one), and the prototype was the boiler, and tank, was smaller, The cab open in the back, and it only had a steam dome. on the real one.

Prototype photo of the Hornet that was identical.

Ahhh yes, the two axle locomotive. The bane of model railroading... too short to maintain power pickup through switches (at least with the two little Whitcombs we deal with on the PYR)

Hello,
This is a new one.  Very nice, but doesn't run on my layout.

What color blue is that?  Where did you get the extra parts?  I've got a few NJ DOT projects on my bench,  An E8 for now, but i would love to make one of those GP7s!

Hello green_elite_cab....the blue is just Floquil Dark Blue out of the bottle. Any light grey is fine for the panel but refer grey is too dark. Red stripe and numbers were from Walthers sets I had around. The NJDOT logo is from Prime mover Decals. Lenses are by MV. Figure is Preiser. Equipment cabinet is a Bob Razza product. The bell I had among my parts but the housing was formed from a piece of shim brass. I didn't worry about rounding the lower corner to fit the roof but rather cut two slots in the hood into which the bell and housing fit. The spark arrestors are pieces of brass tubing cut in half. I mixed the color of the trucks and under body from Polly Scale Oily Black, Roof Brown and probably some light shade of grey....now get busy, have fun and good luck with your model....Tom

Hello green_elite_cab....Yes, on a freshly painted engine. My customer wanted one that looked like it had been out on the road for a bit so I used a light grey instead....Tom
