"FALLEN FLAGS" FRIDAY

My first attempt at weathering.  I got this from Al from Toronto.  When I unpacked it it was heavily weathered so I backed off the powder (the entire loco was the same color as the lower area right behind the cab in the first photo) and airbrushed the vents and exhaust black.  It was a good learning experience.

Nice job! Looks like the real SOO SD40-2s did.

                                                               Nice job on the SOO!

Thanks,  SIRT!! I remain in awe of your work!

Early morning, mid-1949, and a SR F2AA is moving up to connect to its train.  After this run, it will be going to the shops for minor maintenance and get the new simplified green/imitation aluminum scheme.  

Atlas SR F2 and Lionel Pax

The engines are Atlas O and the cars are Lionel.  The Tuxedo scheme (black/imitation aluminum) is still 11 years away.
