    WCTR GP38-2 604

    A revised photo of this WCTR unit. Since a couple of months ago, I have added jewels into the classification lights as well as the headlights, ditch lights, a horn, and handrails. Along with the SW9 set, this engine is also equiped with Automatic Train Control.

  4. Atlas GP38 B&P #2000

    Atlas GP38 B&P #2000

    An Atlas Master GP38, the only thing I've done to it is to replace the original couplers with Kadee #58's - and that was for looks only, as the originals worked fine. It'll be interesting to see how it works under DCC in a few days.

    An artsy shot

    Due to flash issues on my digital camera, this photo didn't work in full color. Playing with the contrast controls did yield this interesting shot.
