    Default The Iron Road Era

    Back in the 90's when the Iron Road company took over the Bangor & Aroostock as well as the CP line from Brownville Junction to Montreal, they rebuilt a dozen or so F40PH's into freight service making F40M-2's. These units proudly wore a CP script inspired scheme. After Iron Road went under, the President went to the Iowa Northern Railway and brought some of these units with him. These units also roam on the San Luis Central.








    Still needs Horns, Bell, Dome lights, hand rails, and Alpha/Minor Texture work.

    Looking good so far Chuck, cannot wait to put a few of those in service to the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic.

    Also, some of them GP38's made it out west in California.

    I'm having the deepest respect for people who can make such things from scratch. Looks good!

    Thanks for the kind comments! With the exception of the trucks and the sides, all the textures I made from scratch!

    Default Loco 451

    Charles,

    Nice work on 451. Interesting, the real-life 451 is now at Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Fitzwater yard south of Cleveland Ohio. She wears Ohio Central paint & lettering. 451's front & back "porches" distinguish her from the F/L FP40's.

    Hi, A slight correction regarding the real life loco. Actually, it is her sister 452 that is in Ohio Central livery.
