    Oh man! Warn a guy before you stick a picture like that up here. I ain't as young as I used to be and those SD90MACs almost gave me palpitations...

    I think you should take "roster" shots of everything you have and post 'em in the modeling section...

      Seeing that unit in Rio Grande sure makes me wish for what we aren't going to have.

      Don't you wish the Grande was still around? Staying or visiting in Glenwood Springs ain't the same with those darn yellow diesels running thru!

      Yeah, I'm sad that I didn't get the chance to visit the Grande in the last 10 years. In 1991 I road Amtrak's California Zephyr through the rockies for the first time and I was totally in my element. I was glued to the window or the vestule door or the end car all the time and felt I was in heaven. I loved watching those Rio Grande trains pass us. *sigh*

      Nice picture BTW!

          Slim Jim doesn't say a whole lot but he's sure an expert on our favorite road!

          Thanks Jim, you add so much to our forum!

            Yeah,

            He is one of a number of folks from the Yahoo Groups Rio Grande email list. It would be a pleasure to have Jim Eager and a few other post here too. But there isn't enough traffic here to generate much interest. Never the less, the place may grow over time.



            I am lost. I have gone to find myself. If I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

              All we gotta do is water and fertilize.

              Now, Jim, which one of us slings the ....? and which one waters??

              Since I'm usually stepping in it, I might as well sling it...

              BTW, love that snake.

                The, uh fertalizer? cow poop? Whatever works. I did plug this forum a couple times on the Yahoo Groups Rio Grande email list, but I didn't want to anoy anyone there.

                Heck, I got yelled at once for not trimming the reply "inclusion" messages off of one of my replys. They can be pretty strict there but it is a good source of info. Never-the-less, I've posted questions there on a number of occasions which there were no answers too.

                BTW, you know the significance of the snake don't you? Dave was lumped into the same group so he went out and got him a snake to put in his sig. I desided since I was in the same distinguished club, I'd it it also!

                  Lance makes some excellent locomotives. the detail rivals brass and the paint jobs are excellent. He hasnt been doing many locos lately, mostly just structures that he sells on eBay.

                  here is a shot of the 2 SD90's

                    Hi, and welcome to RR-L.

                    The reason you can't see the photo is that it was "remote linked" to this forum by the poster, and the link is now broken/dead. Also, most of the participants in this thread are no longer active members here, so it's unlikely they will see your request for the detail shots of 8001. The discussion in this thread took place about 27 months ago. Sorry.

                        Yep, what he said!

                        I'm a bit miopic and pay most attention to pre-1996 SP/D&RGW etc.
