Disscusion / NS SD60 E
« Last post by thpbears on January 11, 2018, 09:00:14 PM »
The folks at Factory Direct Trains are taking pre orders for one penny down and the rest of payment upon shipment. This is the only company I have seen doing this. So far Athearn  has the 911 and black SD60E slated for release. I believe the Vet unit and GO Rail will follow next year from what I read.

Thanks for the updates!

Heard an H25 symbol used on a train that terminated in Manassas over the weekend - presume it came from the west, having met a 36Q at Gainesville/Wellington on the B line. It was too dark to go out but overheard talk about putting engines and cars away.

Since hitherto, we have had K-series locals since Harrisburg took over on 2-3-17, I thought I was hearing things but the symbol was repeated enough that there was no doubt that was what they were saying. Which made me wonder if it was a one-time movement from Hagerstown from cars that would normally go to Lynchburg on a 35Q and come back north on a K99?

It does look better when you put in some work into it like that, but people can't be bothered to learn that stuff. Plus, some of the tools like Photoshop look really intimidating.

Thanks for the heads-up.  They turn out great models.

I ordered two of the Big John Southern hoppers from them this summer, the ones with the "CNO&TP" markings in the upper-right corner.  Neat cars!
