This is an Athearn GP-7 I started back in the early 1990s. It has a Lenz DCC controller in it but I never finished the detailing of the hand rails and grab irons before boxing up and placing in storage.

The Wood Chip car is mostly scratch (well the body anyway) following a MRR article. The detail parts, ladders, grab irons and brake appliances are commercial parts. I entered into a regional NMRA contest and took second. While all other trains were packed up in 1993ish this one was placed on a shelf were it resides today. Most of the models I built and entered into contests didn't do so well. they were to bulky and it was difficult to hide weights. Like I told the judges, they are built to run and need to survive being on a club layout.
This is all my west stuff as I modeled the SRR back when I was active.
Thanks Tom for the info I appreciate it. Yeah that’s a great idea I’ll get it started next Tuesday. We also can have Track Side Thursday too. I made that one up on the O gauge forum I’m on and Midwest Monday. I’m definitely going to do that one Monday maybe this will get some more people involved who are a little Bashful about posting there stuff. I enjoy looking at all the stuff you guys post this is one of the best Model Train Forums out there. Don’t forget tomorrow is Front End Friday.BNSF did 10 engines for their anniversary. Scale Trains did them also.
Maybe add TOFC Tuesday.
