      Shawn,

      Is there any chance that those LSRC GP30's could see a public release? Those are fantastic repaints. Your work is remarkable!

        Sadly these are not my repaints, as they are custom done by Brody into my paint scheme I formulated for the LSRC, based off the KERC/WMRC scheme. I could ask him if it would be okay to share these publicly in the future.

          Another day, another local run out of Rockford to La Salle. It's just a little past 15:00, and the RO-2 crew is sliding out of Rockford Yard with traffic for the customers.







          After roughly an hours worth of switching at Apex and G&D, the train has finally departed again with is pick ups on the head end.




          The next day, at 0600, the crew on the loaded ethanol job, gets the power ready and the buffer car cut off on the siding.



          Backing into Advanced BioEnergy off the mainline.



          After making the first hook, the conductor walks the set of cars to inspect them before pulling up and onto the next track.



          Pulling up past the switch with the first cut of cars.



          After putting the train together and running around the Troy Grove siding, the crew prepares to head north towards Rockford Yard where the crew will be done for the day, and the train will continue on east towards Portland, ME.



          Passing the La Salle Grain Facility.




          One last shot, as the train heads over the long bridge, bound for Rockford.

              Former PRLX/WFRX units turning the Front Range and Western into a colorful railroad to shoot as a manifest from the PNW heads for Denver. We'll see how long they roam the rails before overhaul and repainting.

                More great looking power, MK!

                Some on LaSalle (heavily modified)....and agree - that power Shawn is running would be very nice to have running here:

                  Neil, if you didn't say what route that was, I would have never guessed. My good lord that looks fantastic. Only thing I planned to do with my version of the LSRC was get rid of the insane signal system on the route. Only parts that would have signals, is basically the junctions. Everything else would be TWC territory.

                  I didn't think there would be that much interest in the LSRC equipment. I can see what I can do about these becoming available to the public, as they aren't my doings, just my inspiration and thoughts put into reality.







                  Some CN on the Bala Sub for a change of pace.

                        I been waiting to see this unit myself Ian. I live 5 blocks from NJT's Bergen County Line and I finally caught it the other day on a NY Direct train finally. I have to say with how you said you created it, you hit the mark ! It is one of the nicest of the NJT heritage and special paint units. I even caught the 1st Responders unit and the Atlas Model Trains 100th Anniversary Unit (See Below) in the last few weeks too. Might be interesting unit to do also to sell at TT too.

                        Sorry everyone for posting a prototype unit in the thread but it is related to Ian's post and trying to give him a bit of incentive so I can beg the wife in spending a little of the monthly saving 😁

                        I will go time-out in the corner now.
