(Blows dust off thread, again...)
"Geez, you guys use alota power per train!"

"Well, we like to run our trains fast. Gotta keep up with the big boys you know?"

- Conversation between a railfan and Eric Stevens, superintendent of motive power on the Des Moines and Mason City.

As you can see, I carved out a bit of time to work on 4 DMMC locomotives. Two Ex-CNW SD60s, and a ex-Springfield Terminal nee-NW SD45, and a ex-WC SD45 owned by BN then CNW.

Also dirtying down 3012, the ex-CNW SD40-2

Dredging this thread back up for the CP&A's 9th anniversary. A little night coal on the Buffalo route.

Donned my respirator and headed northwest from Reno to see if I could catch the CPAC fire train in action. Was able to catch it backing its way across Keddie Wye as it made its way up the Hi-line, and I was able to give a short chase before being turned around by a Plumas County Sheriff's deputy.

Got a text from some of the fire crew later on with a pic from the cab looking toward the "head" end from one of their trips during the day.

My first MSTS repaint hit the double digits today. Wow. Even if MSTS isn't my forte anymore, it's crazy to think how far I've come since then and how it's affected me outside of the sim.

https://i.ibb.co/zfd4ym5/1200-turns-10.png

This is how 1200 looked when I debuted her to TrainSim in October of 2011. I remember the day the issues with my account were figured out and I could post to TrainSim, I was shaking with happiness. I knew one heck of a journey laid ahead.

https://i.ibb.co/h1ddqQN/FBL-1200.png

To celebrate this milestone, I took 1200 out on a little sunset joyride out of Dunktown on the prettiest part of the Full Bucket Line. Happy 10 years to the Full Bucket beauty that started my MSTS adventure!

Good to see you still around Dustin! Here's a random mish-mash of recent shots I've taken of various fictional projects I've been working on lately.

Refreshed look for Westlink, including new commuter cars.

A California Pacific special from the anniversary of 9/11, and a thank you to the first responders and everyone involved in the Dixie Fire.

I don't think any of you know this, but sometime ago, I had a hard drive failure where it became impossible to access via file explorer. However, I was still able to read it via command line, and managed to save the contents for the most part, before it failed entirely.

Then Ida hit, which was a whole lot of fun. Anyway, I'm back, and I've been making units both before and after the hard drive crash.

Last units made before the drive crash were a trio of SD70MACs, with some curious features.

After the hard drive crash, I did two GPs, including the first of many heritage units, DMMC 2003, formerly Milwaukee Road 166.

2002 is a Ex-SP unit with a modded nose.

And the star (?) of the show, 2003.
