I love that DL109 loco that Proto1000 did,...the only DL109 in plastic, ...particularly the Santa Fe one. SF was one of the few lines that had a B-unit for that engine, so I gathered up a few extra to kitbash into a powered B-unit

But I have yet to finish that project. In the meantime I bought a BLI B-unit that looks almost like it belongs behind that A-unit,...and it has sound & DCC already in it.

I always liked the DL-107s thru 110s even though UP never had them I thought the nose on them were awesome!

Since ALCO is so skeered of crickets, I'd thought I would case a bit of noise . CSX RMDT 2225 has been around for quite some time, but never appeared on this thread. It's a Proto GP30 that has had its fans removed and doors plated over as per the prototype. The remaining doors at the aft end have had louvers installed , and she kept her dynamic fan, all per CSX practices. I did 3 of these at one time (all appearing in an RMC article) 1 I decorated in the clob scheme, I was painted in a Chessie fantasy scheme by its eventual owner and the 3rd unit I did the CSX paint. Sharp eyed folks also spot the artistic license I took with the "mother" unit.
