Received my repainted Lionel PW F3 shells from Len Carparelli today. They are so beautiful, very excellent work! My wife also commented how beautiful they are and how she likes them. I have been needing some Burlington Route motive power, send in some old, messed up St Fe 2343 shells, got back some real beauties, couldn't be more pleased. Thanks to Len and his great work............ Jesse TCA

OK here goes Green 5 stripe--6 Red 5 stripe-----3 Green single stripe-2 Silver red stripe----1 Interestingly I am not sure a NJ Transit unit was manufactured on O gauge. In the prototype, most GG1s wore the Green 5 stripes for the longest period 20 years or more. The Green single stripe lasted from 1955 through 1970 or so into the PC era, about 15 years. Amtrak colors from 1971 through early 1980's about 10 years or so.The red units were about 10 or so and the silver PRR only 3. Color...

Bill NO preserved GG1 is operational. The transformers were removed and the carbodies had to be flushed to remove any trace of PCB's ( polychlorinated biphenyl , not printed circuit boards...) By the way, my favorite is Brunswick green single stripe. Rusty

i thought i had read somewhere that one of the G's sit had its transformer's... if there was a possiblitly of one running again it would be that one... it would still never happen, though would cost way too much money... but you never know... people dump millions into restoring old planes, look at that P-61 out at reading, its over 80% new parts.

There are plenty of good reasons the Penn Central still has a following. Many of us have fond memories of the railroad. Some of us had relatives that worked there. Many others enjoy and appreciate the wide and colorful array of motive power and equipment that was inherited by the merger. And some simply take a liking to the utilitarian engine...

My attempt at the A&WP 290 - I bought this K-line Pacific already weathered - but was able to match the weathering from where I stripped it to the metal to re-letter it. Pretty pleased. I know it ain't dead on, but it is close. Especially for the first try. It is my favorite locomotive and I wish K-line was still in business. I just bought an MTH Mikado that I plan to changing over to Frisco #4018. They look pretty close too. I wouldn't mind getting one of those Weaver 2-8-0's an...

Other Lionel PW F3s repainted, formerly 2333 NYC with the paint peeling off glossy black primer, a common problem with these 2333 engines. Had them repainted years ago into M.P. freight engines by friend Bob in Illinois, Chicago area. Do not consider having Lionel PW I have repainted, too much, condition and grade of collection best kept as is. Need to begin seeking old, abused shells for repaint and new road names, I reckon............. Jesse TCA

Here are a few I've done. The Lionel traditional size SD9 was originally a Chessie. I stripped and repainted the blue chassis (an awful job, Lionel makes that paint not to come off!), then swapped a Lionel GP9 body onto it. Finally I renumbered the body to a correct SD9 road number. The unit has TMCC; I did it about ten years ago. This was before MTH came out with their Rail King Scale SD9 in Milwaukee Road. The transfer caboose is a Lionel that I repainted. The Milwaukee had similar...

I have many repaints, steam and diesel; too many to post. Here are 2 off-the-wall examples. Two Lionel cheapies, but I like them; the GM&O was done ages ago, even before Lionel offered the "JC Penney" (I think) GM&O RS-3. My early weathering job on the GM&O unit was, ah, intense, shall we say. I still like it, though, if only for nostalgia reasons. The L&N was done only about 5 years ago. Both are accurate paint schemes. These Lionel RS-3's are really good enough to add...
