DASH 8-40BW 1990-1992
|Trio of Dash 8-40BW's serviced at Barstow.|
Note American Limited Fuel stations
This will be my second posting on the Needles Division of the Santa Fe Railroad in N Scale, which I will from now on just call it the Needles Division. Thought I'd trot out my Dash 8-40BW's for a double stack dash through the division. At the bottom of the blog, you will find a link to YouTube and a short video on this trip. I have decided to post all videos on You Tube because the quality is much better than I can upload here.
I mentioned in my last blog that I have a number of "trains" on my layout covering many time periods. I really did not know how much stuff I had from eras outside of my main interest. For instance, I purchased all the containers and well cars at an outrageously low price at a garage sale. I also saw all of the Super Fleet locomotives in Cajon Pass in the early 90's, and had to have models of them. So soon I had nearly all of them. (Waiting on Fox Valley Models for their GP60M's). So future posts likely to be spread all over the last half of the 20th Century for a while. So here goes No .2.
|K Lines of a different color|
|More K Line|
|Colorful containers are muck easier to weather than white|
|Note that the mounting posts and end posts are painted silver; as purchased they are painted like the rest of the container, white.|
|More K Lines of a different color|
|K Line red weathers in reality very fast|
|48' on 40' and 40' on 48'|
