I just finished this MTH AC6000 into 3RS. MTH doesn't offer this loco in 2-rail with fixed pilots and full length handrails, so I added the finishing touches. The handrails are 0.025 brass wire bent in the correct shapes. Also added the conspicuity striping and Kadee 740's. I previously did 2 other AC6000s that go perfectly with this one.
Hello jeff, I was just wondering where you get your conspicuity striping for union pacific locomotives. When converting to fixed pilots, do you somehow attach the old trucks to the body or do you make the pilots from scratch or from shapewas. Also, have you ever converted an mth es44ac from 3 rail hovering pilots to 2 rail fixed pilots? If so, could you please help, as I am trying to convert a 3 rail union pacific es44ac to fixed pilots and full length handrails. Thanks for any help!
