The Northern Pacific is one of my favorite RR's. A number of my relatives have worked for the NP over the past decades, so I guess it is in the blood.

Anyways a few photos of Northern Pacific locos that have traveled the rails of the S&Y RR.

No NP on my pike, but the light green/dark green is one of my favorite color schemes. This might be considered blasphemy for a Pennsy guy, but the GG1 looks good in it. I don’t recall ever seeing some of the other color schemes.

NP has some great paint schemes. The F units at the top, are really attractive. I also like the later black yellow and red Hood diesel schemes. I have been hunting for a NP Geep 7 or 9 in the yellow and black scheme, for a while. There is an RS11 available in that scheme, so I may end up with that...

Tom, I have the Lionel NP RS-11 with TMCC / RS and it is a very solid runner.

Nice to see you posting again. Hope you had good holidays!
Thanks Spence! I’ve been lurking and enjoying the holiday season. And planning my temporary layout. Hope you had a fabulous holiday too!

Thanks Brian, the NP pine tree paint scheme on the nose of the F-units is one of my all time favorites.

Mine too, Bill! I only have one ABBA F7 set to pull a MTH and K-Line passenger sets. I need an F3 set at least!

K-Line F-7, Alco PA, GG-1
MTH F-3 & F-7, Mallet, Hudson
