    Saw a CPAC coal train headed for the hill this morning, so figured I'd head up to Truckee and get ahead of it. On the head of it were a trio of dirty C44ACCTEs, but none of them could hold a candle...

    A mixture of fiction and nonfiction in the Feather River Canyon, as a trio of CPAC units lead a dead-in-consist unit (Dieselmotive Corp. SD40-2 156, ex-Pan Am 609, exx-MILW 156) towards its new home...

    Thanks Curt! On my end, I had renamed the shape file to match the road number; guess I should've added that in the readme. Either one is a quick and easy fix nonetheless. Hope you enjoy it! :cool:

    Michelle, SP never rostered any C40-8s or -8Ws, so there may not be much coming in that direction. However, I do have some AC44s in production on the SLI Green River shape.

    More Horses Than Mules

    Decided to start on the Grand Canyon's other famous way of travel, the train! Kicking off the project will be (at least a few of) their F40s. Decided to start off with 295, as it's pretty stock from...

    Kyle, to answer your earlier question, yes the P32s retain their rear window, since they have no rear end door like the P40s and 42s. I agree that it could be the shading making the hand rails look a...

    Set the status to

    Headlight ( 4 )
    Unit ( 3 )
