Hi John, Is that a GP50 long hood on the blue and yellow switcher? That's a very unique kitbash!

Welcome to the forum,


Track maintainance isnt to bad. Rain is the worst thing as it makes the nickle silver get that darkened dirty look pretty quick, nothing that a quick wipe with track rubber does't solve!

As for engine 03


yes it started as an HO GP50

Whereas 02 started as an OO class 08 shunter


The locos page of the website includes some pictures of some of the "donors"
