Well after spending the day either in a LHS, playing with my trains, drooling over my NEW baggage car, and surfing the net for trains, I got some ideas!

1. Get that OMI Dash8-40CW chassis from my LHS

2. find a P2K GP9, and figure out how to make a GP28M/P

3. Get myself the genusis SD70M, UP I was looking at...

Anyways, off to find a GP9!

Josh, i think ALL three of your ideas are GREAT!:D but of all three of them, #3 is my favorite.;) those new Athearn SD70M's look GREAT! and to get one in UP, well...that would be the icing on the cake.:D good luck in any/all of your three ventures. let us know what ones you ended up doing. thanks:), -Dean

Well I found a few GP9's towards it, but I think I'll buy the Dash 8 chassis first, then next month the SD70M...
