      Fortunately, I don't run that eastern short line.  Still, it does have bashing possibilities...  :)

      You know Steve that it's fairly easy to strip the paint... I'm sure an SP&S FA would like lovely on your layout! ;)

      That's what I was thinking, Craig.  I have an ex-Santa Fe FA-1 in the shop, waiting for the muse to strike.  I plan to re-paint it in the SP&S's original scheme, as seen in # 211, the B Unit in the below pic, mostly GN green with gold accents.  Beautiful.  Pics of an A unit are like hens teeth, rare.

      How do you rate?   My last order from TW took 5 days for the tracking and two weeks delivery. (And it was "in stock".

      $200 is a fair price for excellent locomotive.  This is just what 1/29 needs right now!

      Hey Ken - Great price on the FA-1. Wish I had some extra cash!

      Why don't you ask Bob to set you up a section in the Vendors & Manufacturer's area. That way you can moderate the responses if you like.

      Steve,

      That is a beautiful paint scheme! I know the Alco's traveled heavily down the Columbia Gorge post merger, but not too many made it up to Seattle and worked the branchlines at least I haven't seen pictures of.

      Craig, the decision was made to keep the ALCos on the old SP&S because the shops were familiar with them, where the rest of the BN system had never laid eyes on them, and would probably screw them up.

      Yep, even the none SP&S Alco's got shipped to the PNW. The Vancouver shops must have had some really good mechanics.

      That FA unit looks spiffy enough to be tempted, good thing I made my resolve long ago.

      Did a quick test on my stationary rollers and all checks out fine.
      I assume these are new-old stock?
      But I have to say the motor blocks and the wheels run perfectly smooth, no waddle, very smooth operation.
      Wish my Accucraft 45T had wheels as true as on this locomotive.
      Hopefully I can test it out on the railway tonight!
