Not to bad of a job Ryan. I can still see the place you stitched it between the first and second radiator fans and the extra bulge towards the rear of the fuel tank. Do they have a bar and dancing girls in that stretched cab? ;D

That, and there's also that inhuman, astoundingly perfectly square black box in the lower right hand corner of your "photo."

The part that's actually comprised of photos, though, is well-done  :P

this an odditie weird enough (for me) to wake up this thread...



Deemed surplus with the arrival of new GP38-2's in 1977-78, TP&W RS-11 402 was converted to a snowplow in 1979. The unit was later sold to Kankakee, Beaverville & Southern Railroad, where it is shown in 1993.

here are two other oddities I have discovered a few minutes ago that I know nothing about

This is a weird gp40 rebuilt, but everything else is a mystery to me





Every thing I know about the second one is its name: Ingalls 4-S

This is a strange loco, it looks like a cross between doodlebug and a E8

That would be the Rock Island's AB6. Strange little critters...

This is what happens when a crane, a trolley car and a truck cab have a freak baby...

Too bad the little abomination had to get lost when the IRM moved to Union...  :'(

Doesn't help the fact that its a 20cyl engine.  It would need to be refilled at every yard along the way!  :D

Im not sure it would be possiple, it would be too much weight on the center of the body thats not being supported on an axel and it warp or just break apart

they could use a cantilever structure to support the weight, but the axle loading and the overhang would not allow it; railroads these days prefer smaller more versatile units. GE's and EMD's 6000HP locos had little to no success...
