The horn doesn't work on 1501 so I have to play Slayer and Pantera on the PA system at all the grade crossings.

It's a LPG facility, in the far back is a oil refinery and beyond that is a nuclear waste storage facility. I run 5 trains a day to downtown San Rafael...

And what/where is that backdrop supposed to represent?  Looks sorta like an LPG facility which is a touchy subject.

Richard thanks! Yeah all I did was rust the wheels and did a light dusting of grimy black on the wheels. All my other stuff is weatherd. I really wanted to make these look "fresh out of the paint shop look". Hard to see in the photos , but I also rusted the Sergent couplers that I added.

Beautiful work Matthew! My two SD-7's and SD-9's have only very light weathering. A little "dirt and dust" on the trucks, under body and the ends reflect the then NWP's care for their locos. The lightening effect makes the under body detail "Pop" better in photos too. Always remember, its your railroad!

Thanks Chad. I didn't have the heart to fade it.

Very Nice,  Would have been cool to give 1922 that faded paint job though.
