    Seems I wasn't lucky enough to get the latest Blackfoot route...

    Here is what I've been doing.. in real life actually.. Engineer/Conductor of the big road train. This was based off Monday's train. (though my day off, the following day I work, running the train, with 60 cars in tow..)


    GMTX 2663 GP38-2, leads VTR 307 GP40-2 and 51 cars bound for Burlington, up and over Thompsons Point Hill. This hill drags us down, but thankfully it's a 40mph section of track. 15 loads of gasoline on the tail, 35 loaded salt cars, and one boxcar on the headpin full of lumber.

    Rating for the section between Middlebury and Burlington is 3000 tons per GP40-2/GP38-2. Some days we are under, some days we are over by maybe 200 tons. Though the 5000 total HP helps a lot, as well as the high track speed.

    I really do like those two lead units, prototypical or not. What's the story with them - personal reskins/edits? They are sharp as a razor!

    These are a few personal reskins that I did both for the heck of it and to test out my repaint abilities. The duo are a part of my second repaint, with the first being the MRL F45s seen below (kudos to metrarailboy1 for completing the chevrons on those lokies). Both were done with .psds provided by friends in the train sim community.
