Lets see those alcos. I will start with this old atlas kato that was reworked from the RS11 model into a CN RS-18. Minitures by Eric provided the anticlimber pilots, numberboards and other ditty bits. The paint was custom mix of tamaya blacks, red and orange. The decals were microscale. Pencil was used to bring out the louver details.

Here's one passing through my old home town of Hawthorne, NJ



And here's an Erie RS3 that I converted from an Alco Models generic RS3.



And let's not forget the NYS&W! This is an Alco Models RS1...both the Eris and Susquehanna paint and lettering jobs are by yours truly.

Here is my S4 switcher on the Lyon Valley Northern. It just passed the switch lead to the two track grain terminal and is moving on to hook up to some cars at the furniture factory.

Here is a picture of an Alco at the diesel facility on my friend, Michel Boucher's Delaware and Hudson's Adirondack Division layout.



The 5019, an RS36 low nose diesel, certainly looks handsome in the blue and silver of the D&H livery.

No this was not taken on the New York turnpike five minutes after a flat. Couple Winters ago, I was at Guelph Junction which is at the top of the Niagara Escarpment West of Milton Ontario near Campbelltown (CP Main). I was looking at the locomotive facilities on the north side behind the Go trains. The location was for the Ontario Southland Railway. They used this RS18 as parts. This RS18 is now known as the monument.

Hey Chris, maybe the locals in the Milton area could use the cab of that RS18 for their Z-scale clubhouse!

Wow Bob that is a super model. Fantastic detail on the parts laying about. Really makes ya want to take it home and fix it.


These were taken on Tommy Hood's Canadian Northern





I think Proto did these and a great job on the paint ...Sound and all.

From my archives - here's a hard working MLW RS-18:



Converted from an Atlas RS-11, with a scratchbuilt hood for snowplow duty.
