So at this time I want to thank a major contributor to the E5 CB&Qs, Santiago Pineda. He spent many hour reviewing drawings, production pictures and the such, and really guided me into doing the best that could be done on the CB&Q E5s. THANK YOU.

 

It was a privilege, Scott! Thank you! My set will be here in a couple of days and I am dying to see it!

Santiago - You work on these is outstanding.  As a result, my A unit will be the first Burlington unit on my roster.  Not sure what I'm going to pull with it ... coal drags out of Pueblo, CO?    I will need some help from friends who have passenger cars for it.

Your welcome on the contribution to the Mopac sets

Liked my New E6's so much that I broke down for one of Scott's left over sets of Santa Fe's. I have a awesome fleet of E6's - going to be selling a few Lionel/MTH's off soon.

Great to hear most of these are getting through without damage.

Also to Thank: Jonathan Peiffer and Richard Dunn, of which I would not be able to do these projects without.

At the factory now, they are hot to start the E7s and PAs... Production is now fixed. Can't add anymore, but we will take stand-by orders. People do drop out in the process of waiting for these. Looks like an October Delivery.

Boy I’m sure enjoying everyone’s pictures!!!!  Absolutely well done models. Scott. Do you have a cool group shot of production output to offer?  I seem to remember seeing a big table of SD7,9s. Here’s hoping there is enough interest for a second run down the road for those of us that “tapped out” after buying multiple units - and still have “wants”.  I’d like to see later repaints offered - MP in Jenks blue and IC in brown and orange

Lord please no Jenks Blue, it  serves no purpose it was the start of the demise of the Missouri Pacific. I can just imagine Scott doing a 100 of E6 in Union Pacific gray and yellow with North Little Rock red Lettering. Be happy with what he did, and they are rare from the quantities  5A 3 B  2r     5A 4 B 3r

Oh I am incredibly happy with the MP models - especially with the unique port hole windows !!! With the numbers you mention and required different  tooling, I am grateful to Scott for executing the model. (And I’m selfishly sorry we couldn’t get MP and T&P E7s with portholes.)

We all have our own likes and dislikes and where we draw lines. I will not buy a model in Union Pacific colors with MP lettering.  Don’t want one. However, A Jenks blue model would add a color diversification to my fleet of E’s and F’s. And actually would fit in nicely with all the last powerful MP diesels.  Just me.  I love all the models. I grew up watching the real ones in South St. Louis county and lived every minute of it.

Regarding the tooling issue the Early E 7 done years ago the dies were cut such as it probably could not be done as an insert change of portholes in an E7 body. They were not thinking that way back then. So you were looking at a whole new tool to get Portholes. It could be done with a new E7 3.0  body using a resin casting or a 3d type insert, If you wanted to cut up the shell. It could be done but work. There was a company that did this back in the 1980's to the HO LLK P2K shells and models.

But I do not know there name when they were offering the kits, but the were nice in there time.

For the sake of my ever-tightening cash flow, I'm grateful that Pennsy did not have E6's.

My real point is to congratulate Scott for his collaborative approach to developing 3rd Rail models: Pfeiffer and Heil come to mind.  I don't know, but doubt, that the other major O scale manufacturers open up their development to outside help. The results, as in these E6's are plain to see.

I would love to see more of what has not been posted. I save the photo's as a way to tell how far  SSM has progressed from previous models offered in the pass. If you haven't noticed it is by leaps and bounds. Good Work Scott.

Bob Harris

I agree. Small details very crisp and not muted by smothering thick paint.

Scott, based on these fabulous pictures, I reckon you’d get a fair number of orders if you announced a re-run tomorrow! 😉😊

Did anybody get a Southern E6 in Tuxedo livery? 

Please keep the photos coming, folks, and thanks for sharing them.

Yes. Keep the photos coming !!!!  There’s actually quite a few missing roads. I’m saving the photos too. 

I’ll be game for another run down the road !!!!  Can’t get everything I want at once. Scott has a lot Queued up but the tooling is done. Could have the potential for another schedule fill in project. Gotta hold those prices though. It gets expensive quickly buying two or three at a time.

Would love to have been in a position to buy a set of these AT&SF units - simply stunning!

Thank you Scott and Jonathan for more beautiful locomotives.  Please keep these photos coming!

Just got off the phone.  Hopefully I will have a set of SFWB on its way this week.  Awaiting the dust settling after they ship the engines.  I guess standby.  Fingers crossed.
