Hi everyone,

My son and I are working on a project to build a science fiction train layout.

We have started by modifying a Lionel steam engine. We added plastic pieces which come from a 'futuristic sci-fi' model-based wargame called Warhammer. And, the result turned out very nicely.

This makes for a lot of fun for my son (who really likes wargames) and me (who really likes model trains) -- so we both end up working on things we love!

We are working on building more converted locomotives - and also working on converting some rolling stock.

It is a bit heart breaking to cut-up collector quality GP and SD locomotives - so we thought we would ask if anyone had any really banged up GP or SD locomotives which would be good conversion candidates.

Here is what we have converted already

And, here is the layout which has inspired us - created by two gentlemen in the UK.

So, if anyone has an O- (Lionel) GP or SD locomotive which fell of the layout or got to close to the wood-stove or something like that -- please let us know if that's something you'd also be willing to part with :)

Many thanks!

Shell for GE 44 Tonner?

Hi everyone,

We found a GE 44 Tonner (Lionel) - and this looks good to modify. Wondering if anyone has a shell for one of these. We want to have one shell for normal running -- and one shell for running with the SciFi version....

Thanks :)
