Just wanted to share a few snaps of the latest E5 production by 3rd Rail. I worked closely with Scott making sure the builder had all the info/research to get these to a brass level of accuracy. In my opinion, the result is phenomenal. Enjoy the pictures!
Thanks for sharing Santiago. Looking forward to your next project.
Santiago, a beautiful creation! The surprise shot of the automobile with the E5 was awesome.
1940 Packard Super 8..... appropriate! 😊
Very nice Santiago!!
Mine came Friday. Didn't get much time out of the box with it as I was reorganizing all my 3rd Rail items that live in the house, but it is a wonderful locomotive. Thanks for all the effort Santiago and for the great photos.
Now to begin the journey of finding appropriate cars for it. I want to something a little different than just a bunch of Atlas CZ cars.
SantiagoP23, I LOVE your shadowless lighting! Very nicely done. Your photos are top shelf, professional imagery.
Thanks, Melvin! Pretty much learned from Erik Lindgren, he sets the standard in scale model photography... he also exposed me to 2 rail and the high end of the hobby... ugh the forum is not the same without him, you know?
Hats off to Scott AND his builder... I wouldn’t be in O scale if it wasn’t for them!
Now there are the types of cars I'm looking to pull behind my E5. Is there a back issue of the Burlington Bulletin that might cover some of these mixed consists?
I agree Santiago. I miss Erik's postings here as well.
