Nice shots, even if most are "black and white".
"N", the Normal scale!
Very nice pics!
How do you get so close? Are you a railroad employee or something?

Very nice shots!
However someone did a terrible weathering job on the Trans Corp hopper, you can really see the brush strokes!
My wife always says I don't pay attention, or something like that.
I really like that first picture. That ex GP-30 converted into a fuel tender and possibly a slug. Most I've seen are just tenders.

To Cj, what indicates to you that the GP30 is a fuel tender or slug. If a tender, does that mean it's engine etc has been removed and replaced with extra fuel tanks?
Oh, and that Transcorp hopper gives me encouragement to start weathering my equipment, if it looks roughly hand painted then I can't go wrong then.

Wow very cool pics. I really like the 2nd one (black one with the horse). Would like to buy a model version of that if there is one. Maybe you can recommend me an online store?
