Nice line up Frank. End cab switchers have always been a favorite of mine since I used to see them quite a bit on the EL when I was a kid. The Linsay and Varney are real rare models for sure.  
 
Here are a few of the end cabs on my layout. Two EL and one for the Hyland coal co. from Life like. I also have an Athearn Erie Baldwin switcher,

Another smaller switcher - the 44 Tonner is also a favorite of mine.  
 
Hyland Coal #2 which I use for the 1950's version of the layout.
 
A few D&H Alco switchers are also in the mix.  
 
 
I also like your SW1 that is painted for the Pennsy very much,

Nice switching power. Most of mine hasn't seen the layout for awhile so is not cleaned and lubed, so I wont run them till I do. You mentioned a Baldwin S-12 by Athearn. A guess.

NEFAN; Well due to your use of Erie and Lackawanna Railroads, I'll post something of these railroads. First a F3A made by Gilbert in Lackawanna RR colors.

Here is some ex-EL power...   Conrail SDP45 6668.  An ex-EL SD45-2 follows.  
 

 

 
PRR B1 Electric switcher.  
 

 
A little bit of an older shot.  I finished this ex-LV GP18 in the meantime, but I haven't taken any updated photos of it.
 

 
New York Central T3a
 

 
Conrail B23-7

That is a rare one and in good condition at that. I've seen a few at shows and they usually look pretty beat up. - nice

green_elite_cab - The Conrail engines under wire bring back good memories - very nice. The engines with the CR stencils... not so much

Its a lot of fun to model though.   Definitely adds variety to the trains!
 
Here is an earlier progress shot,  with the LV paint job unblemished with patches and stencils    
 
On the model, I made it so even the road number is visible under the Conrail numbers if you look close enough.

yes - that was just like the real thing. The "watercolor" patch jobs would fade and the old paint would begin to show again.

Great photos ! My favorites of the Green man's photos is the PRR B1 and the NYC T3a. Time to try again. Another Lackawanna loco I'll post is a trainmaster.

I have the PA also. The silver trucks make it very classy and it looks good pulling Stillwell coaches.
 
I have two IHC engines, an ERIE 0-8-0 and EL E8 engines. The IHC E8 set is powered by the front unit and only on the rear truck. Still it is a good running engine for it's age.

One day,  I'll do a patched Conrail E8 #4014 with the complete EL paint.   That really stood out on the New York & Long Branch in the late 70s!
 
Apparently, a single E7 made it through to the Early 80s as well, in beat up PC paint to boot!    So many modeling opportunities, so little budget and time!

thanks for the kind words Frank. The maroon and grey scheme is one of my favorites having followed the EL when I was a kid.  
 
The NY&LB was an operating museum in the late 70's. I remember the PC E7 which I believe was the 4224.
