Here is one more picture of 4014 crossing the diamond. The engine right behind it is a Lionel Flyer Berkshire.

Beautiful set up buddy.. I also have a K-Line Allegheny engine in O gauge.. My son and d-i-l finally bought a house and moved out, and I went through some of the crates of boxes I have stored. I probably have around a dozen hoppers of various road names for the Big Boy and Allegheny. As soon as I get my closet organized I'll throw some pictures up...

Somehow I ended up with 3 HO Big Boys. I like steam engines.
4005, 4007, and 4014. They all run very smooth.

Great pics Tom.

Love those Alcos, especially PAs and RSs.

Thanks guys, I do have a soft spot for Warbonnet PA's. Tom, great looking Pennsy PA's that you posted. Al, as far as buying diesels, my preference is to buy the best condition possible. I.M.O. the better the condition, the better your chances of getting a problem free one. The other thing is to try and get a dual motor PA vs. a single motor one, unless the condition is better than average. The GP7's are generally good runners, but be sure if you buy a Baldwin switcher that it runs good before purchasing it since they seem to be prone to overheating. If you can't see it run or the seller says he can't test it, pass on it.

I don't have an original AF diesel. So no idea on a good price for one.

WOW cramden, that PA set looks great. Nice condition.
