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!

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.

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?

Absolutely agree with you. El es el mejor con una camara. He is the best. And to think he lived 25 miles from me and I didn't know it.

I wonder how could we get Scott to produce some Budd cars that include SILVER SOME.... we need it!

 

 

I “second” this idea. Also, might suggest GGD making just the various observation cars found on the TCZ, KCZ/ARZ, DZ, and even the “domeless” obs from the Texas Zephyr. 
¿qué dices?

Owing to the fact I do not need even ONE MORE train car, I would surely reserve all four.
