Close coupling is another task very well done . Are those 905's ?
Richie,

Yes, all my freight cars and most of my locomotives have them installed.

Everyone,

Thanks for the kind words.  I'll be purchasing some better photography lights soon, following Marty's recommendation, so I'll be able to take better long distance type shots.

Erik,

Are your F-units coupled with drawbars, because you really have got them close!  Since there should be three feet between the carbodies, maybe too close. ;)   Any chance you can roll those beautiful F-units on their sides and show us the secret of how you close-coupled them together?  Nice work.

Dave,

Yeah, they are drawbarred together.  I made the drawbar look like couplers.  I even used some 905 trip pins.  Once all was said and done I realized they were a little too close.  They don't look that way normally except when viewed from the inside of that 17" radius curve where the steel trestle is.  I'll post a photo next time I break the camera out.

They look farther apart from the outside of this 42" radius curve.

Erik,

Thanks for your prompt reply.  That's what I figured, since I have done the same thing with drawbars in the past.  Those are some absolutely gorgeous F-units.  Although I have always modeled eastern roads, I have always had a fascination with the D&RGW and that paint scheme.  Thanks for sharing your pictures.
