I today have finished my Athearn Genesis series PL&E GP38-2. I went back today and added more soot black powder to the top sides of the locomotive as well as the roof around the exhaust stacks. I’ve painted the walkway chains. I’ve also added some fuel stains to the fuel tank of which is shown below. Finally, I added some dirt to the doors. I’ve also included the prototype photo of this unit. Hopefully I’ve come close to replicating the prototype!

I have been a railfan since the age of 6, and a modeler since the age of fourteen. This is my first fully (well not quite) completed model railroad. I fell in love with trains early in life, ride them when I can, have volunteered on many steam fan trips and have ridden many more steam excursion trips, have belonged to several model rr clubs, and did a stint as a brakeman/conductor on a midwest regional railroad. My layout was published in Model Railroader magazine in 2016. I hope all of you enjoy the ride here on my sites! I now have the second blog/website up for my other hobby: wargaming with Flames Of War. I have been involved in wargaming off and on since my teens...... View all posts by stevecampbell60
