*blows dust off thread* Man, it's been a while since anyone has posted.

Well, I finally made a DMMC SD40-2. Say hello to 3011, a ex-UP Fast Forty SD40-2.

Needs weathering, but I'll stop for the moment. This unit was on hold for a very long time, and I'm finally glad it's done.

Caught wind that today's eastbound CPAC UPS train was being led by a quartet of ex-CSLP Fast Forties, so naturally, I headed out to the Canyon to catch them. The leader was recently repainted from the frame up in the CSLP scheme with CPAC numbers, while the other 3 are still wearing their original paint with patches.

Well, here's the first ever pieces of rolling stock for the DMMC, and very regional too. (Discussion in General Thread.)

A Beet Hopper for the Sugar Plants in the Mason City area.

And a 2 bay hopper.

Numbers are tentative. I think I'm going to go with blue markings for sugar service.

Blarg...

I know this isn't an original concept to this thread, but I gave it a shot anyway. I also made a major change to DMMC 3011's Paint Job.

Added another number to my FBL Dash 9 set, and that's an update to Dustin's 9776. Seen here leading a manifest through the desert with another FBL -9 and a primed C44AC.

An FBL coal train pauses for a crew change at Lake Hurst. A quartet of AC44s are on the train today, with 3 on the head end and a single DPU on the tail.

A CM&T transfer run heads to Toledo, with an ex-CSX SD70ACe and quite a few NS units behind it.

On another day, a pair of ex-ATSF GP60s and an SD40-2 do the honors.

Notice that 3105 seems to be missing her numberboards. I guess a vandal must of nicked them.

A Test Train of sorts for DMMCs REAX Division, a mix of Longrunner flatcars and a string of Roadrailers.

Attached Image: Open Rails 2020-01-28 09-04-35.jpg

It's going to be a while before REAX Trailers are actually made though.

DMMC 3011's weathering isn't quite done yet.

And sometimes, you just need to make some real world units that are owned by real railroads to give some of that flavor. Will probably be released in some way.

Attached Image: SFCAN515.jpg

Case in point, UP 9720. This will just be either traffic or mixed in a train, just for some flavor.
