Outstanding,what are the road names on those two buitifull(spelling) locos?TWhite said:Willis--that paint job is really quite striking, I like the color scheme. Kind of late Western Pacificy looking, but not really. Nice and original. And though I'm not a real die-hard diesel fan, i've always thought GP-9's were a really cool locomotive.
Well, after a fairly non-productive summer, I've spent the week running trains. Here's several shots of an articulated double-header, a new Proto 2000 USRA 2-8-8-2 and an old (25 years old) Westside brass Rio Grande 4-6-6-4, that seem to really like each other as far as gearing goes. I photographed them pulling a 25-car merchandiser through Wagon Wheel Gap the other morning. They seemed to be having a pretty good time together, so I left them alone.

LOL Bob, I believe everywhere else I posted some of these pics I included a blurb about the color being off. But heck I had the paint long before Will L. told what he used on his so I decided I could live with itHey Willis - your CB&CNS color scheme sure looks like that of NB Southern's:
That don't look like CBNS to me...CBCNSfan said:No one started the thread.
Well here is the almost finished GP9, Just some window materials and the headlight lenses 5967 was the last loco to have CB&CNS livery
