A fly/onel set. Beautiful train. From early 1980s. Southerm Pacific Day Light scheme.

PA locomotives A B A. With Railsounds.

I don't have a layout so most pictures are done on top of wall behind my house.
I really like the way you display the locomotives on the wall. Looks cool.

And a darn fine looking train set.

This is a Lackawanna Trainmaster from AM. I purchased it new at an S Fest many years ago in Chicago. It has been modified to add Railsounds and run with the Legacy control system.
The photo was taken today in the freight yard area of my layout.

That is really nice. I've been focused on finding S gauge accessories. At some point I am going to start looking at locomotives.

It's certainly no scale model, but it was my first attempt at many of these types of mods and it was done to a piece of my family's history.
Nice work. I love mods.

My B&O Royal Blue. Cab #350 (I think). I got this from one of our members. flyguy55. In running condition. I like it.
I think a 1948 model. To me this should be a passenger locomotive but It came in freight sets.

Yep. I put in a warm white LED so it doesnt have all that bluish tint.

Looking for some beat up streamliner passenger cars to paint. I have one dome and observation car. All I need is a couple of coaches and a baggage car.

Did you put a LED in for headlight?

Headlight looks great. I assume you will paint passenger cars blue to go with The Royal Blue. AF made a Royal Blue with blue passenger cars for O scale, prewar. But not for S scale. So you agree there should be blue passenger cars for the Royal Blue S scale.

I think Flyer would have sold tons of the Royal Blue S gauge sets had they offered them. I thought of getting an old O gauge set of the passenger cars and putting S gauge trucks on them, but I really like the newer light weight streamliner cars better than the heavy weight style.

If anyone has some beat up streamliner cars they don't want, I'd like to buy them. I'm having a hard time finding cars that are all scratched up but not destroyed to repaint. I've been installing some LED's in passenger cars using the LED modules and using to separate led strips in the car to even out the light.
