KCS MP15
Atlas Master... ESU LokSound.
A 'contract' job (a few months ago) for 'Drex'.

He wanted it fuel-fire scorched.

The effects of occasional minor fueling fires eventually add up, and between shop visits, some diesels can get to look pretty bad.
It was more common with switchers, partly because their refueling ops were generally more hurried or rushed.

It's actually a very cool (and realistic) idea.
I may do my Frisco 70-tonner, and a Geep like this.

[Note]:
The primary difference between the MP15 and SW1500 was the MP15 had standard Bloomberg B trucks.


As can be seen, Atlas Gold and Master series detail is superb.

Are locomotives required to use a ground clamp when refueling as we do for aircraft?

Excellent depiction of an 80’s era KCS, I always liked the white scheme better, when I visited Shreveport in 1989 they were just starting to use the gray scheme, but there’s just something about the white and the weather patina it picks up

That white KCS switcher would look good with either new owner’s logo on it.....

But why???
Nothing was more common in the heyday of St.Louis and Springfield than KCS, MP, Cotton Belt, and Frisco.
True Missouri beholders miss those days.
