Glad you like it! Do remember if you really particularly like a set of roads, you can buy the bundled versions that include 5 skins for 24.99. Works out to be about 5 bucks a livery.

But I know not everyone likes every railroad that we may bundle, ao we're working on a plan at the moment to make picking and choosing something you like easier.

Excellent models. Interesting using rail cars to activate DP on these.

It takes a lot to get me to go out and drive. But when I am not building, well, I got my new go-to train for running out of Suffern.

The behavior of this model is wonderful, I have a sense of its weight and momentum. The sounds, well, the sounds are exemplary, inside and out. This is a well thought out and executed work.
Totally worth the price of admission.

I keep forgetting how loud these units are in external view. I'll just be driving along in the cab and I'll stick my head out the window to look back at the train and suddenly it's just SCREAMING. Not complaining though, I love 'em and I'm really looking forward to any future Jointed Rail conversions.

I can't wait for these Snoots you've got on your website chaps. I found a little website that explains what the UP SD40-2N Snoot is, being British I didn't know, it's quite informative, you learn something new everyday on this forum, you are so educational....... !*roll-laugh*!

Bought!!

Purchase through e-shop went very smooth, and instant download after confirmation of payment.

Uncle Pete at one point owned nearly a thousand of these locomotives, and many still roam the rails today, so an essential purchase for any fan of Western USA railroading

Anthony also forgot to mention that this is the first ever locomotive for trainsim with fully operational air brakes and the ability to actuate.
