Right on. Location is good on the sandhatch but not the type. These pull down doors were a D&H thing. PA's original hatch looks like:

Looks like this in silver. Say, that coupler hanging out like that, just a test engine, right?

That's close enough for me.I'm looking forward to this set.Gaetan,will the D&H pack be different from the locos already available on your site?With the exception of the PA you had the D&H pretty well covered.

Yes!!! thumbsup.gif

Awesome work.

Is it possible to offer a pre 1960's version too? If you need info on this Gaetan please send me an email (SouthwestChief@gmail.com) so I can get you lots and lots of Santa Fe PA photos. Not much needed really though and should be relatively easy to do depending on how you did the original shape. The basic changes would be to loose the nose grabs and front MU recesses, horns would change as well. And most of the other details I believe are a part of the texture, so maybe easy to backdate...but also possibly not the easiest with photo textures.

One last question, does this shape use any freight animations? If not then it would be possible for myself and others to add our own radio antennas once we get the loco.

But keep this baby coming...long sought after and will be a hit...I guarantee it. And I bet you that most buyers will get the D&H set solely for the Santa Fe skins...I'm included in this wink.gif

Wow! It's Herb alright.

I may have to depart from studied precedent and purchase a set of these - ahem - diesels. They look wonderful! (Boy, is this gonna cost me - another thousand years in Purgatory at least.)

At least you'll have something to keep you occupied!

I think forgiveness is in order, though, given that these babies are so good looking, and true classics to boot.

No, he's definitely right. This is Herb! All over! Do you see my avitar? Do you know where they "belong?"

Can't wait for the release for many reasons.
