Show me more of the curves.

Here's a typical NYC diesel configuration of the early '60s with several builders represented while negotiating a superelevated curve:

Here are a couple of intermixed ATLANTIC COASTLINE diesels. This scene is on the Pasco County modeler's HO scale show layout.

Please show me two or more diesel locomotives coupled together.

Peter, I consider myself wise (or perhaps lucky) to seldom model interior details of structures, but if I did such modelling, I'd surely be embarassed to follow your photo above - absolutely outstanding! Bow

I completely agree with Wayne..... Peter: your garage interior is absolutley outstanding. 

It does not look like others will be posting a garage scene. (especially as fantatic as Peter's ) 

Rick: your request was not clear to me. Maybe you left out a word. I'll guess you meant to say two diesel locomotive units on one train. 

So, here is a two-unit consist. 

 

 

Please show a consist with two diesel units ..... (or show a garage scene if you have one ).

Thanks a bunch Doc Wayne and Garry, this forum's kind and generous modelers are a constant source of inspiration and learning. 

Btw, thought the Rolls in the service bay was a stretch, but then remembered the last Rolls I saw, an older model, and no kidding it had a Dead-Head sticker on the back.  Regards, Peter

Aside from a fully painted Bicnetennial diesel, Boston & Maine painted a few with a simplified scheme. I painted GP7 BM 1715 as it looked in a photo taken around 1979 after a few years of hard use.

Shown on a section of my layout that has since been rebuilt

Show me another Bicentennial locomotive or red, white or blue.
