As I mentioned last year, Satsop Railroad #1 was moved from the Supermall in Auburn, WA to the MRSR in Mineral, WA. Here are some photo’s of the engine at it’s old home along with it’s caboose.
Hello! I haven’t posted in a while, but hope to start posting more often. This post is on one of my current projects, which is a model of one of the locomotive from the now defunct Spirit of Washington dinner train. The base for this model is a Athearn blue box F7A shell, which I have heavily modified. Modifications include removing the heating unit at the back of the locomotive, filing in the porthole windows, removing the lower headlight and front door, and modifying the headlight. Here I’ve included a parts list for building one out of commercially available parts, and a video on how to modify the shell, although I will make a complete tutorial video eventually. The model in this post is prototypically correct for WCRC (Spirit of Washington Dinner Train)#84 and #82 (Except for winterization hatch), MDOT/MARC #7181-7185 (1980’s) #81-85 (1990’s),SLCC/ Railcruise America #101-102/ RPCX #1020-1010, Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay/ Iowa Pacific #84/1104- #82/1101, or paint and letter it for your railroad, or a real railroad that didn’t own one. Here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AmquTe4uM4
