A few more of my "Western" trains.  Still need to get some good pictures of the 3rd Rail E6s, but I have a run day at the club on Saturday.  Maybe I'll have a chance then.  Kind of a funny thing happened to me back when I worked on the 3rd Rail FT project.  None of the roads were ones I modeled, but I liked the original catwhisker scheme on the ATSF versions so now I do mostly western roads in 3 rail and my eastern ones in 2 rail. 

The GS4 is a Williams.   All the other locomotives are 3rd Rail.

 I remember riding #5 into LA c. 1963. UP even then was a West Coast road. Also too, the City of Portland on the Oregon Short Line:

Breakfast in the Dome Diner! Looks like 13y old geysergazer was chomping on a slice of toast with a plate of pancakes in front of him. Doesn't get any better than that! 

 

UP on the Plywood Empire Route:

Not quite Wednesday, but here goes.

Since I model the Pennsy, I don't have many West Coast engines.  I do have these beauties.

These SD75s are the K-Line engines that were offered but not built before K-Line folded.  I don't know why I ordered them except they looked great and were inexpensive.  I'm glad Lionel decided to finish the project.  The car and containers are Lionel.

Paul,

The car with the short dome is a K-Line as are all the 21" cars.  The three 18" cars in one of the videos are MTH including the full dome.  Club cars.  I was too lazy to bring my El Cap set this time! 

After running the E6s I'm tempted to order the GGD 37-46 Super Chief to go with it.  A perfect pairing.  It's just money right?

Don't know if this counts as West Coast also, but broke in this locomotive with the same cars Saturday too.

Jonathan, Yes, I would say Burlington counts.....
