I just took possession of a NOS WEAVER ALCO C6-28.
I always wanted a 6 axle high horsepower locomotive to pull some long trains at our local club. Got it a couple of days ago. Here are a few pictures of it pulling a 29 car ore train around. Now hoping to get a second unit so I can double head them. Then I might purchase a dummy F unit and paint it in CNW colors and place the F unit between the Alcos View attachment 546924 View attachment 546925 View attachment 546926
Might be looking into weathering the big guy to make it more like a real ALCO, rusty, dirty and oil covered.
Just got my ALCO 's twin brother. Another Weaver ALCO Century 628 in CNW. Here they are pulling a 27 car ore train around. Next to them are a pair of MTH Doodlebugs that have been drawbared together . The marker lights have been modified so they show green in forward and red in reverse.
