I love GP20s ! I reckon they look best in the early Burlington livery.

Is that one of the early builds with the very tall chimney? :P

Finally got my hands on one -in early bn livery not the newer bnsf logos - but it's a kato -runs silent -pulls like a beast and even my 8yr old grandson is impressed !





Rails at Sheffield have one -but the price needs to fall before I'm tempted!!

I love all US diesels. I guess if I was pushed the SD40-2 in Santa Fe yellow bonnet would get my vote. Don't have any American N gauge but I do in G.







That looks like a place I've been to in Albuquerque, NM.

Not really a diesel, but an electro-diesel - The New Haven FL9's



I did see them in regular service out of Grand Central in the late 1990's,but this is a pair of the preserved ones at the Danbury Railway Museum, CT, in June 2009. One of them is painted in a rather unprototypical NYC livery, which a couple of them carried at the end.
Now Rapido have made a model of them in N, I suppose I may eventually get one (if the exchange rate ever improves)........
