More six-axle power, please.

Here is a ROCK ISLAND E unit on the Lionel Great Dogbone Layout that is seen at several train shows throughout the South.

OK... one more time... Show me a 6 axle diesel locomotive!

An A-B set of Trainmasters.

Those are nifty models! Love them.

Lets continue the six-axle theme.

Some General Electric six axle diesel locomotives belonging to BNSF. These were seen on the Scale Rails Of Southweest Florida N-Trak layout.

Six axle diesels seem to be working well this weekend... so... show me another diesel locomotive with six axles.

A beauty shot of a pair of Pennsylvania E8 locomotives shortly after they were converted from Atlantic Coast Line livery.

Lets continue the six-axle theme.

Just to clarify (for the presumptuous among us), there was no confusion. But since my post seemed to annoy for some strange reason, I've deleted it.

Mark, in "Show Me Something", the posted picture should fulfill the request from the previous response. That was what caused the confusion.

No need for annoyance or deleting posts.

More six-axle locos, steam or diesel, please.

Here is a beautiful O scale E unit on the Southern O Scaler's impressive round show layout.

Please show another six-axle diesel or steam with a six-axle tender.

OK... If you ask for a "6 axle diesel", that just gives me another excuse to post a picture of my favorite locomotive, my Trainmaster!

Please show me another six axle diesel locomotive.

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

Well, not on the layout, but it's train room preparation for building the layout... Watching my wife cut away a bit of framing on a stud wall to clear a heating duct.

A sharp-looking B&O E9 has "internal walkways" but it does have handrails

You are perfect Ed. I was just asking for a cab unit in a clever way, but it did not work out too well. Beautiful locomotive picture.

 

gmpullman
Please show me something else from B&O, C&O or Chessie System.

Here is a CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO BL-2 on Mr. Muffins Lionel Layout in Atlanta, Indiana.

Show me a locomotive from UNION PACIFIC or SOUTHERN PACIFIC.

Show me a shop scene or something being repaired on the railroad.

Here is an Alco PA-1 getting a bit of repair work. This scene is on the BNSF layout in the Chicago Museum Of Science And Industry.
