I saw this LV model at the RIT Tiger Tracks Trains Show last weekend. As I recall, it belonged to a club called Seneca Valley Lines:

The Rochester G Scale Club was also at the show. Our very own Scottychaos had some his LV models running on their layout:

A pair of C-420's. One is by Lima, in back with KD coupler, and the oldest made for sale by MRC. The other a Rivarossi, in the front with X2F coupler. Made after Rivarossi took over Lima. I think also a MRC loco.

Using N scale Life-Like GP20 mechs and Atlas GP9 shells, I am detailing out three units - one GP9 and two GP18s circa mid-70s.  Fans were harvested from donor SD26 (pan-style) and GP38 (flat top) shells.  I used epoxy to attach the Sunrise winterization hatches and GMM grilles.

Long hood and cab work is complete for 301 and 302; Sunrise sunshades and BLMA M3R1 horns match the prototype details:
 

 

 
Next up I have to work out the rooftop air filter box for the 305...

A photo of my brother Doug's O scale layout...1 year's worth of construction.  The Black Diamond streamline was scratch built by him using an old Williams Blue Goose.

Awesome stuff, LV_Miami! There's nothing quite like O-scale models, the heft of the real things really starts to show with models that big and heavy!
 
Welcome to the forum! Looking forward to chatting with you more in 2016!

Rochester Junction:
 

 
SW1:
 

 
SW9:
 

 
Baldwin switcher:
 

 
U-boat and F unit at the service pad:
 

 
The only "cigar band' RS3:
 

 
F units leading a freight train:
 

 
The rest of my visit can be seen  in this slide show:

The first of my three N scale geeps is done!  It needs more dust on the fuel tanks and trucks tho:
 

 
And wow, my iPhone sure didn't do justice to the red

Added 301 to my LV GP 9 roster,I chose the final paint scheme to compliment 300.Notice the different horn placement and the position of the LEHIGH VALLEY on the flanks.


 
 Closer views of the 301
