    This looks very good. However, The CSX SD40-2s did not have ditchlights at the time they got the stealth paint schemes. Still, I love the looks of the model.

    Looks good!

    I wish Jointed Rail would've made that earlier.

    It would be interesting to know how those worked. The firebox has to be near the normal place, but the pistons are way up front. Did it transfer steam to the front box somehow, or what was its purpose?

    The ATSF GP38s as they stand. I've improved the colors of the units to better match Jointed Rail's payware ATSF offerings. Also new is a Bookends scheme unit.

    Throughout the summer of 1970, Santa Fe received a respectable order of 60 GP38s. All, 3500-3560, were delivered in the Bookends scheme. The Freightbonnet scheme was introduced in 1972. As the 70s moved on, the fleet would be repainted into the new scheme. They were rebuilt into GP38us throughout the 1980s, renumbered 2300-2360. Only one GP38 was repainted into the SPSF Kodachrome scheme, 2312. It was reverted to Freightbonnet in 1989. GP38us would have their headlights and horns relocated in the 1990s. The lights were now on the nose, the horn on the long hood. By the start of 1997, ATSF and BN had merged, with the ATSF GP38us on the roster becoming part of the new BNSF railway. They ended up with the numbers 2190-2248.

    These models look very good. How did you remove the ditchlights from the mesh?

    Evilcrow, thanks for the link, but I still dunno how they did it.
    Mothebunny, love those UPs with the torch relay!

    Forester1,
    The Garratts are 4-cylinder simple locos, with steam being delivered to and exhausted from the forward and rear cylinders by a complex series of pipes. Both sets of drivers are articulated, with each respective bunker (coal on the rear or water up front) moving with the drivers, unlike U.S. mallets and articulated engines where only the front set was articulated. So these Welsh Highland locos would be 2-6-2+2-6-2. The concept was very effective, allowing for very tight radii. Also equally effective going forward or reverse. These locos originally went to South Africa, circa 1958, now back in the UK. Both the model and Ken's reskins are terrific.
    Best,
    smyers
