A couple “Hot Rod” F7’s are used to haul our coal train as the “A” unit has a huge lead weight for ultimate traction. The cars are my operating type with live coal loads able to pull 18 of them. I’m going to break down and install window glazing, number boards, and constant lighting soon. The sound for these will have two engines running with one of them miss firing.
The pilot was cut away and a die-cast snowplow installed with coupler. Brass wire hand railings were attempted in a few places. Five chime brass horns let you know when this train is coming through. The cast on fan and exhaust panels cut out and detailed ones installed. Some opening was cut out of the side body panels to match those of the “B” Unit Highliner kit. Graffiti artists attacked the “B” unit to devalue this engine set from the rest on the fleet.
