That's the plan.
I also did a proof of concept for operational two colored classification lights and a new method for the stainless nose grill too.
We'll see.

Where's my GP30?    :P

Hi Ed,

You got the wrong Skytop.
Bill's painting is much better than mine.
You're right though. This might get an alcohol bath and a respray.

Jim,
I wouldn't bother with it. It looks pretty minor and that photo is blown up to larger than the actual model. Also it adds character when you weather it unless you want that out of the paint shop look.

we also took to=he roundhouse roofs and taped them together in sets of 3s so they would say together better
Put blue painters tape on the roundhouse across 2 stalls that would be at the edges of the joints of the groups of 3 roofs and then another piece across the back of groups of 3 roofs

Just catching up with WU here, another tour de force!  No doubt the centerpiece of this week's thread is the coverage of the final runs on the WM.  What a well composed photo series documenting a sad day, Lee.  The thing that makes it especially moving is the fact that your pike has such a strong personality; no doubt a small piece of you went with it.  Shed a tear for the WM:


[I would have preferred Rubinstein, but this version had better video.  Play it while you leaf through Lee's photos again - 9 minutes you won't regret.] 

I look forward to the next creation!   :lol:

P.S. Just more infrastructure for me: wiring, turnouts, etc.  But progress nonetheless.

P.S.2 Great to see you back in the fold, Russ.
