    Rivarossi heavyweight cars at a show... No contest, in my opinion, especially if the shell from that 1 locomotive can be successfully resurrected on a better chassis, which I know for sure it can be.

    It sounded like a good idea at the time... too bad the caboose wasn't in on the plan.

    Hi Mill Bay,
    You can PM me if you want. I have three bodies here you can have. Two are Pennsy and the other is partially stripped. I am quite happy to send them to you as they were only going to go bin wards. I will also include a four wheel conversion I started using ConCor PA trucks you may be able to finish off where I started. The Short wheelbase end of the PA trucks, which are the driven wheels are near dammit correct wheelbase for the Rivarossi four wheel side frames and if you want a six wheel truck on the rear you could use the existing truck or modify it for another four wheel truck. All or most of the parts are there. Your call mate.

    Regards

    Recently I finished a chopped nose GP-9. This is an ex-Soo Line unit that the Soo shops chopped the nose on. I built it primarily from Atlas and BLMA parts, the nose is from a life-like GP20 (per the prototype). It was fun to build.

    And I just finished renumbering one of my SD40-2s (because ILSX did it to the prototype) so my ILSX 202 is now ILSX 1344

    The CP unit looks kind of like a GP 10, if you don't look real close.

    A GP10 is a rebuilt GP9, so the body will be the same. Depending on who did the rebuild the GP10 will have 4 exhaust stacks and a Horst style air filter box. I have an ex-BNSF GP10 I'm working on right now, no Horst on that one though.

    That's the one, ILSX 1418, but it is back in Bethel. The prime mover had a major failure so it is completely torn down right now. I hope to have it up and running on the Skally shortly.

    I never saw that one on the TC&W, but I always see the blue one (2026?) on the Glencoe Turn.

    You are probably thinking of GMTX 2668, it was on the St.Paul job for a while too.

    I can't say this is my favorite since I just got it, and I only have one other one that is way too modern for my era. I saw this one and thought it would look great on the (rapidly evolving) LTCRR. I'll have to post an update on that soon.
