Hello again fellow flanged wheel enthusiasts - Welcome to the third edition of Switcher Saturday - Mark II !
This is a recurring weekend thread dedicated to the little loco's that make big things happen. As with the original thread, if you prefer yard goats over mountains, an A-5 over an Allegheny, or a S-2 over a Dash -9, then you've found the right place.
Once again proving that bigger isn’t always better, is my favorite little 4 wheel diesel. This guy is painted to represent a loco at the Reading Society of Model Engineers, where I spent a great deal of my younger days.
Please check out the RSME at their website. The inspiration for the paint job on the model above was work engine RSME #10. While not well represented in the 15" gauge photos, if you saw it in person you would get the idea.
If you missed last week's thread, feel free to check it out here.
As usual, there's a few simple rules for Switcher Saturday:
1. If it's related to switchers (model switchers, prototypes, critters, switching yards, switching layouts) - we want to see it! Videos, Pics, Stories (true or fictional), poems, whatever!
2. If you miss the post on Saturday? NO BIG DEAL, just keep posting pictures of your favorites until the next #SwitcherSaturday
3. Keep it friendly - we want this to be fun. (we haven't had any problems with grumpy trolls, I'd like to keep it that way)
4. In regards to compliance with the letter and spirit of the OGR tos, this post is in the photo album section as the subject is switchers and small motive power. Three rail O is the common medium but anything from prototype through Hongz, grand scales, live steam etc is welcome, as long you took the photo yourself or have permission to post it. Feel free to post a link to something cool.
