After watching some YouTube videos of 1970's Milwaukee freights in various areas of the country I decided I had to up my automotive and piggyback transportation game. I have so far bought and built an Accurail tri-level autorack kit and two 85' flats. I also have an ExactRail Vert-A-Pac car on its way to me.

I also kicked my BNSF locomotives in their respective butts and got five of six working. The SD9 is an older Athearn Blue Box which I have refurbished and brought to DCC life. She still needs lights, though.

Finally got my Milwaukee FP45 #1 running. Like the SD9 she is waiting on me to figure out LED lighting, but it runs very well for being cobbled-together.

I normally don't bother with lighting the number boards, but I think I may go for it in this case. They're just so prominent and look very easy to light on this model. This loco will also need some secondary lighting, which I believe are mars lamps, between the number boards. I don't think those particular lights were used while these locos were in freight duty. I'll remove the dynamic fans sometime this summer when I can spray-paint outside. At that point the trucks and fuel tank will also be painted.
