Robert Love the Bunyan. The tender really makes the whole thing work.

ncdodave Those are so cool Guys! looks like something to pull an egg liner train. Historically on NG rail lines single truck cars was quite common. You can visit several NG railroad museums for such examples. I no longer model G gauge, Im doing 2.5" scale but, im working on a train of single truck cars for a unique train. more fun in the hobby is what makes it interesting for some of us. How can i "kitbash" that to make it mine.

Jeepguy515 I appreciate the complements, thank you, I use any motor block I have laying around, I've used Aristocraft, Bachmann and an oddball Lionel I had.

Here's a few pics of a "Paul Bunyan" Bachmann loco and caboose I "shortied" up the tender is a Acristocraft tender cut up.

Mike Flea Those are pretty cool in the various road names. I had done this same thing in HO back in '91 when a similar Union Pacific did a 4 ft drop off my tabletop layout. They work good for a "short" line

Dave Meashey Jeepguy;

I like the way you have used parts from both the long and short hoods of the original locomotive.
The Aristo Craft abbreviated RS3s only had a stub representing the short hood. I refer to my copies as an RS3/8.

Best Wishes, David Meashey
