PAL and EVWR Geeps and SD40's

Unread postby USARailfan » Fri Jun 21, 2019 9:11 pm

I'm making a prototypical route and can't seem to find any Paducah and Louisville or Evansville Western railroad Geeps or SD40's, I'm not good at repainting so hopefully someone here at RWA will do them for me :) I would like 6003 to be painted from Searchights EDIT: UP SD40, 3805 and 3803 painted from Searchlights UP GP40, and 3833 to be painted from the Steven's Pass or Barnez BN GP38 if all possible please :) Thanks in advance! (Credit to the original authors for the pics)

6003 would actually fit pretty well on the UP SD40-2 non-snoot. It's got the HTC trucks, UP can MU holder on the front handrailing, and other details that seem to indicate UP heritage.

You are correct! I missed that bit when I was looking for pics, thanks for pointing that out!

Which one of these is closest to the real color? These pictures show a lot of different hues.

The first one of 6003 is the closest

Somewhat off topic, but if you want to make a good Proto EVWR route, you'll need some custom assets... if you can find someone to make them, I can provide photos.

On another note... The RWA GP40 and Slug that Jerry of VRC graciously donated would work okay for the 2100 series slugs that both P&L and EVWR have

I don't think PAL or EVWR has GP30 slugs, but it would work since we don't have GP40 slugs in TS19. If anyone wants to repaint those too I wouldn't mind lol.

I think he's just identifying that it's Jerry's GP40 and could be used for the model.

That's correct. I've done work on these motors and they're similar, but not quite. These all have Dash 3 electronics too.

Ah makes sense, the more content the better! A little teaser on the route, I have about 8 miles of track starting in places I have photographed, from the town of Princeton, KY to Paducah, KY. I'm hoping to eventually do P&L's 223 mile route from Paducah, KY to Louisville, KY and part of EVWR's system to the North. Been working on it since March, hoping my shite computer doesn't crap out on me until I get a new one.
