Compare yer HO models to trainsim!

If you have a model train, and you have made it for train simulator, post a shot of both! I like to compare.
Here is a Guilford engine of mine. I dont know what Athearn was thinking, the colors are way off ! But I like it anyways . She's my girl.
Well, that emans colors on my engine is inaccurate with colors .
Post away .
The MSTS thing...
The model... (Photo by Steve Amorick). Well, we both paid for it, so it is not 100% mine . Colors are even darker without the flash !

Why do you think Union Pacific attacked the model railroad company?

I grew up with Santa Fe Railway, and Union Pacific trainsets, which why now I run BNSF and UP engines. Now only do they look better, with the right colors and all, but I just prefer six axle power and long trains when it comes to model railroading. I like desert railroading too when it comes to MRR.
With MSTS, well you know what I prefer. And in Real life, I prefer the St. Lawrence & Atlantic Railway.

I smell something fishy here!

I am not comparing, but rather showing the models I own. I have 3 others, UP D9-44CW, BNSF D9-44CW, and a GRS SD40 that I never completed kitbashing on.

I am sitting here and the only thing that comes to mind for me is a simple word: "Wow!"
I've been a fan of 1218 since I was 8 (~16 years ago). No other locomotive has impressed me as much as a N&W Class A. Such a fine combination of beauty, size and power.

There is also the San Diego Model Railroad Club, the San Diego N Scale Society (both of whom model Carizzo Gorge in HO and N scales, respectively). There is a 3-rail O tinplate layout there also as well as the San Diego Club's O scale layout.
Quite a complex but the La Mesa Club is the shining star, IMHO. They are modeling Bakersfield to Mojave complete with a fully functioning CTC system and as close to scale in size and scope as possible. The stretch from Ilmon to Cliff is fully sceniced and the Rowen through Marcel area, including Tehachapi Loop is finished for trackwork and awaiting scenery. There is about 10 feet of separation in elevation between Bakersfield yard and Walong. Just an incredible layout.
None of the equipment seen here is mine, I was just privileged to watch it run! So I cheated. Not really my models but since we were running comparisons of model vs. simulator and I was running this thread Grand Canyon on Tehachapi I thought it might play.
