Those SMS guys are awesome.

Seriously, they deserve some sort of award.

These are acceptable replacements for their yellow can openers, I suppose.

Damn, those E's sure look nice.  Do wish they would do a PRR one in the 5 stripe paint.

Ed, what YCOs?

That Erie E-unit and the Pennsy Baldwin are sharp. ;) Now for one in MoP colors!

I'm wishing that CSX would take the UP's lead and do some new power in old paint schemes.  I would have thought the recent 175th of the B&O (and concurrent 150th of the WM) would have inspired someone down in the paint shop.  A black AC44 (or whatever the hell they call those things now) with gold speed lettering would do much to get me back out track side.


Although the boys down in Belington have done a pretty nice job with what they've got laying around, too...
