*SP&S locomotive

*Wisconsin Central SD45- bonus if there are 2 or more in a consist or if it is running long hood forward

*DRGW (Denver, Rio Grande, & Western a.k.a. Rio Grande) SD40T-2

*Empire Builder equipment- past or present

Since no one seems to have a WCL SD45...

That last pic there is to be WCL #7524, with the old style front (similar to the rear of the long hood). She's currently sitting on my desk here... RPP shell, A-line chassis (old athearn shown there), Kato cab, cab sub-base, & nose. The joys of having left over Kato parts, no need to buy a Cannon cab...

Hmmm........ it looks like we're having a hard time finding Rio Grade tunnel moters, SP&S locos, & Empire Builder equipment. You'd think that someone would have somthing to fit at least one of those descriptions!!!!!!!:D:p:D:p:D:p:p:D:D

I have a Fmr. Rio Grande tunner motor, although it's armor yellow now, lol:p

new one: ALCO RS/RSC... (I.E. RS3, RSC3, RS27, RS11)

P.S. If its modern, i bet i have it in some form!

How about a Pennsy locomotive. Extra points for steam ;)
Sorry for the poor photo quality but it is dark out. Some big Pennsy power but unfortunately, not steam. Nobody has RioGrande tunnel motors?

So as rules went, you choose the next one!
I still want to see some tunnel motors. I guess I could get mine out but that wouldn't count.

It wasn't a Rio Grande locomotive. Rio Grande tunnel motors had a larger than normal gap between the front truck and the fuel tank as well as an extra box for wheel slip control on the conductors side walkway. I like it though, what is your pick?

I haven't posted one of my descriptions in a while so I thought one up for you guys:

F45, extra points if it is Montana Rail Link or Burlington Northern:)

Remember we're still looking for Empire Builder equipment, Amtrak or Great Northern, basically if it was used on the Empire Builder, it counts.
