Excellent work Jerome.

GP60s are awesome looking locomotives, that bigger dynamic brake hatch gives them a real tough appearance. Does the A&P have any in their fleet?

The A&P has 20 GP60's in it's fleet. 16 in the maroon and black scheme, and 4 in the grey and black scheme for MoW.

Here's the current roster shot.

I've got to finish them up sometime soon. I've changed the front lighting arrangement some so I have to go back and redo the paint on the nose. Then add final details on the pilots (plows, MU hoses, air hoses, spare couplers, etc.) The GP0's are going to be used in sets of 4, for the container trains. The series is 200's for GP60's on the A&P roster.

200, 201, 202, 203, 204, 212, 213, 228, 237, 245, 249, 250, 253, 261, 263, 271, 275, 281, 289, 299.

Here's a good side shot to show the different paint schemes for them. The grey ones actually have 2 decals applied to them. First a black, then a white a little off to the side. Gave them a nice shadow affect I think.

OK, reviving another old thread. I see all of my old photos are messed up by Crap-bucket, so I'll load some new ones of what I've been working on today. 2 more old SP patch jobs, and a UP one I'll be doing for my wife.

First the original 5 UP jobs.

The next 2 are ones I need to clear coat tomorrow.

And finally the start of my wife's, lots of detailing to do yet.

P/bucket really did a "number" on them, eh! Nasty blighters.
I've got 2 P2k GP60's BNSF patched, blue and yellow warbonnets. Story apparently is they are lease engines and can only have that livery, even if repainted. Apart from that there is an Athearn RTR SP GP35 in the SP/SF merger scheme, another in PRR and an Alaska RR. Those all have NCE D13SRJ decoders fitted, but rarely see the tracks. There is another P2k GP38-2 non-dynamic in CNW livery, DC only, and 3 switchers, the Atlas SRY #152 MP15DC w\QSI sound, a Genesis MP15AC in CP Golden Beaver/NCE and an Athearn RTR SW1500 Southern RR DConly . And the other P2k UP GP20 that I put Tsunami sound into.

The SRY and CP MP15's get to do a bit of yard switching occasionally, because that's what they do, up in Canada.. The 3 GP35's are supposed to be getting repainted into MRL, but as Athearn have done 3 in their Roundhouse range, of which I didn't buy any (idiot), # 401, 402, 403, only #403 being of interest (Dynamic brakes, only 1 DC on US ebay @ AU$171+$101 shipping,) I should sell these and wait till they do the other 3 hopefully. Klein's had them under US$100 when they had them.

Didn't notice it until I went to clear coat them tonight. I forgot to put all of the small decals on the SP speed lettering one in the first picture. I will correct that tomorrow and start detailing the UP #1966.
