Great selection of locos but somehow that 14xx doesn't look right next to an SD90mac  :D :D
Keep on Smiling

thanks ! You can't have my BL2 though, mine has the later chassis (hard to find) and runs beautifully.... It's a keeper ! The SD70ACe is awesome and I'm thinking of getting a ES44ac in NS black to go with it.
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

Hi Mike,

The one I have was identical to yours except it has now been repainted into BAR colours. See 2-3 posts above yours.

Keep looking on Ebay but usually forget about them and they go for reasonable prices.

It's an SD70ACe but I'll let u off as they are pretty similar ! The scary thing is that the SD is actually too small up to the 14xx - in real life that SD would be much taller.... :o

Alco PA1/PB1 - Great locos !  :thumbsup:

Not my favourite colour though... I love the D&H silver and blue, similar to Santa Fe red and silver.

Thank you,
 I am hooked on American made now after having had such bad luck with dapol , also good value when you consider how much it costs to buy a dapol or farish with sound . fineboy

Nice lookers

I have 2 Santa Fe E6 AB and Southern Pacific Daylight AB set from Broadway Imports. As you say a little more pricey than some but well worth the extra I believe.

My favourite has to be the Daylight Southern Pacific  :D

Would there be any chance of you shooting a video so we can hear the sound of the loco  ;)


Not my favourite colour though... I love the D&H silver and blue, similar to Santa Fe red and silver.


I also like the D&H Silver and Blue livery, it looks very smart  :thumbsup:

Who could not like the classic Santa Fe livery, I have "one or two" PA A Units in Santa Fe  :help:

cheers John.

If you upload your video to You Tube, it is then very simple to post the You Tube link into your post.
Any problems with posting it, please feel free to PM me and I will do my very best to help you out  :thumbsup:

cheers John.

You have the video set to private so it cannot be viewed  :'(

Plus you only need post the link from You Tube e.g. www.youtube.com/watch?v=abcdefgh this will show the video in your post  ;)
