Well I got all of the finished units out tonight. By my count that is 204 completed switchers. I will take a picture tomorrow of the project switchers I still have to build.

Hey it's good to see you posting again!
Is that new unit one with the current keeper installed?
I'm looking at getting one for the paper mill.

Rico, the US Army one is a Walthers with DCC and LEDS already installed. The NY & A is an Atlas unit I'll have to throw a decoder in.

There's hope for the future for you too Gerome. UP has ordered 10 of Progress Rail's new EMD24B Tier4 locos to possibly replace or supplement their Gen1 NRE Gensets. UP will call them GP22T4.

toot, I'll have to look those up. Can't say I've ever seen them.
Not built yet, so models might be a while coming. Atlas did the NRE Gensets, quite a bit bigger than the average critter. The GP22T4's will be a single motored loco, unlike the Gensets which have 3, each on demand as needed.
Gen1, Genset

Gen2 Genset with Dynamic brakes, obviously intended for Road Switcher duties
