    Default Some More From the W.I.P.

    Really nice screenshots, everyone! Here are a few more from my work in progress -- a short BNSF train with a special load rolls through an industrial section of Lubbock, TX and then through the outskirts of town on its way to Clovis, NM:

    The SP and DRGW are long gone but LK&R is still running Tennessee Pass (Not my route). Two LK&R C44-9W's lead three freshly painted Racine & Western (RWRR) SD40-2's on a northbound manifest.

    CLW SD45Mu's as they were shortly after the recovery of the Erie-Lackawanna, from a bid to purchase
    the system by CLW after Hurricane Agnes severely devastated the E-L in the early 1970's.

    Before the Lewiston & Pamona came into existence in 1988, the mainline from
    Lewiston, Missouri to Dallas, Texas was operated by the MoPac, as a secondary
    route to Texas via Springfield, Missouri and Arkansas.

    In late 1982, the MoPac sold this line, seen as redundant, to the SP who wanted access
    to Lewiston and eventually Chicago. The line to Lewiston was sold to the SP on
    January 1st, 1983, giving SP access to the heartland terminal.

    SP eventually did make it to Chicago in the 1990's through various methods, including
    BN Mendota and ATSF Chillicothe Subidivsion trackage rights via Kansas City in different
    years, and the old Chicago & Alton-then GM&O mainline to the BRC via Joliet, Illinois.

    Erie-Lackawanna by remaining paint only, a new CLW thoroughbred is born.
    CLW SD45Mu no.3642 leads a westbound MoPac freight out of Lewiston
    as run-thru power. These units would have been fully repainted into early
    CLW colours at their Marion, Ohio shops shortly after this photo was taken.

    CLW, MoPac, and SP six axle units make up a colourful consist rolling down
    the hill at Clodel, Missouri. This trailer train was a handoff from the SP to the
    CLW at East Lewiston Washington Park yard, the forerunner to the Javelin service.

    Newly repainted SLRR SW1200 #3066 is ordered to pick up some semi-blanked out SD9s that are remarkably clean for their age. They were stripped of most of their paint during their last rebuild back in the late 80s when they were deactivated as new power came to their branch. Now, one summer day in 1995, they're being moved off of an old storage track and to a storage shed in which they'll be fully inspected and either put back into service or scrapped. The second unit would end up being the only one reused.

    Does it make sense to reuse SD9s in the 90s? No... but I've always said SLRR never wasted what could be useful one day... I also just don't want to bring out the old ph2 SW1200 haha
    Phase 3 was designed in 1995 canonically so...

    Cheers,
    SM

    Right now we're startin', we're rolling, are you ready out there?

    Really nice interesting Pics with excellent stories to boot.

    I can get lost in here just looking around, and some of these Paint Schemes I have not ever seen.

    The routes look so realistic too.......Thanks for sharing.
