I've had the parts for this project for close to 20 years!  Finally getting around to the old Kato U30C/C30-7 into a NP U33C trick.  Took the nose and flared radiator off the C30-7 and spliced them onto the U30C.  Much more to do.

Richie:  I've never found a good picture of the WTC steel being shipped to the site for construction.  The framework was built at multiple sites, then shipped east in sections, for a modular design.  The idea was to have a standardized skyscraper, making design and permit work much easier.  The architectural community considered it so ugly no more were built...

One of the builders was Pacific Car and Foundry - the railcar and large truck builder.  I don't remember any of the pieces going through Pasco, so they probably were sent over Stevens Pass on the old GN.

Finally finished my N scale Briggs Models RS-27. It will represent one of the MLW demonstrator locos that were leased to the British Columbia Railway in 1973.

Now I just have to find decals for it.  :scared:

Have a good weekend.

Ran to Hobby Lobby in Flagstaff and some other errands and found 70% off some JTT trees. Good thing I didn't order these on line. I found these 14.99 only 3.47 and 9.99/10.99 stuff for 2.47 - Check your Hobby Lobby, don't know it's itsnationwide or just this store. These will be a great addition to Hemet.

There is some similarity there but they are actually Rock Island U30C's that became U25C's

The NW-3 is now up to first paint, so primer will go on this morning right after these shots.   But this shows how much of this oddball had to be simply scratchbuilt.







At this point, I'm more than irritated at the 'drawings' of the NW-3 in the Nov. 66 RMC, I started the build from that, and then I got into really studying the photos of GN 181 the reality is completely different in many, many details, and frankly I can't find any photos or version of an NW-3 that agree with the drawing.  So I fixed as much as I could, but...the lesson remains start with photos rather than the drawing rather than the other way around.

The 'thingie' on top of the hood in front of the cab, is, according to my EMD expert, the air compressor cooler coil (like on a steam locomotive).

Maybe before painting that eye candy you could ship to a very trusted source for measurements to produce a shapeways print .

Thanks for that info , My thought was to find pieces of the wreckage steel being shipped by rail for future display , or even scrap .
