I know it's a Photoshop, but still...



Terrible minds think alike......I actually had not seen your picture when I posted this a few days ago to the NS locos facebook page. If facebook had a dislike button it would be the most disliked shot on the page lmao. I like your take on the numberboards better.

Nikos,
lower the headlight some, move the numberboards lower than the HL (like a geep), and the nose mount the e-bell and you have gold. Twin P5's on the ends would help too.

 O0 Yea...with a V12-CAT.

U18C?

Looks like some of the traction motors may be aloof...in fact I think it's done kicked the bucket!

My guess is it's probably a U12C, maybe a U8C, can't quite tell, it looks too short to be a U20 or U24. I do know that it belongs to the Aqaba Railway Corporation out of Jordan though.

Its a UM10 - rather odd classification if you ask me. pretty much a tri-axle version of the U10B or as we call em' here DH.



Gotta love them baby GE's

 O0 I'd love to watch the U10B with it's V-16 Caterpillar, I bet it really pounds the ground.

Something like this?


I can't remember what actually made this happen but if I remember correctly the long hood was wrecked on this SD45T-2 so they took the long hood from a SD40-2 and mounted it on the 45t-2 frame with all it's components.

Bill

Ps... I think they need a picnic table and a barbecue on that long porch. ;)
I would love to see somebody make one of those (jointed rail, hint hint, haw haw  :smirk:) goofy looking SD40-2's.  I like random odd looking locomotives like those. O0

And actually bill you could probably put a hot tube to go along with the picnic table and bbq!  Now that would be cool!  Haha. :thumbsup:
