That really looks great. I think that I've seen that design before. Is that a Western Krause Maffei?
I believe that they were known to be 'notoriously unreliable'.
Great looking model...looking forward to running that one. I just love seeing something different.

I live over in Reno, and I drive by the UP yard here twice a day, five days a week, and I doubt that I could tell you one locomotive from another. Though I've been known to stop at the Nugget and take a picture here and there on the way to work. I've seen what I think is a 1500 running around by our warehouse, but I would have to double check on that on.
I'm looking forward to the Truckee Railroad Dayz, and to the Portola event in September.

The construction company donated the rail and the ties to the V & T restoration project. The project is making a mess of things through downtown, but once the tracks are lowered, I'm going to miss the cry of those horns at night.
I'll be waving at everything moving next week...

I am looking forward to a few trips over Donner...

If you get an idea of when you'll be over here, let me know, and I'll grab the camera and head down towards the yard. If you get the time, it would be nice to meet a fellow 'Simmer'. Though now you'll be doing this for real.

They also feature authentic Maybach engine sounds. Sweet!
