Beautiful modelling - the Frisco is my favourite (loved that livery for a long time), but the rest are no slouches either. Great to see Western Pacific in there with the Perlman Green livery. A very hard livery to capture and a pretty good go at it.

Not so sure about the physics, seems to zip off like a scalded cat and certainly compared with any of the MSTS models I have, seems just a bit too frisky in 1st and 2nd notch. That aside though, this is simply superb...

BTW - Coupling air hoses are from Britkits and not standard with the model.

Nice shots as usual. This engine is a pleasure to operate. Great looking cab and sounds.
Thanks RW. tongue.gif

I will buy it, but it has to wait. Too tight with the cash, close to broke. sad.gif

One of the 6 Conrail reskins completed by Bill Platt - my favourite the NS patch with the bad paint job smile.gif
