Quiclky becoming a favorite 

I recently built these 3 CNW units for A session here at our club. 

All 3 are Katos and the SD40  889 is an interesting loco with a different nose bell.


 The 6544 is a Stock paint job, I added all the details and a weathering job




I Worked for the IHB and Spent a lot of hours delivering trains to Proviso.

 It was about 5 miles from the Harbor Connection to the Recieving yard. We almost always had to stop right next tp the engine house

 

 

  I will add more Chop noses as soon a I get the photos of them

I've Recently counted the part of the weight that  I had to cut from the inside to make the chop nose fit.
