13792FA-1 shell and painting Micro Trains F-7
- Apr 3, 2003OK maybe I can't get a PA-1 shell for the Micro Trains F-7. If
somebody brings out a snap-on FA-1 shell I'd be happy. I'd like to
model the 1947 American Freedom Train (yes you young whippersnappers,
there was one before the 1976 version!)
Also I want to base my layout on the railroads of my hometown when I
was young. So that means Milwaukee Road, Chicago Nothwestern and
Green Bay&Western. Id like to re-paint 2 Micro Train F-7's in CNW and
Milw Road colors, Were there any articles on painting this loco in
back issues of Z-Track magazine? For the Green bay&Western this will
be a bit tougher as they were a pure Alco railroad in the 70's.
BTW over on our favorite auction site someone is selling a Rogue
Locomotive Works GP38 shell. He had it listed for a 9 day auction.
The guy knows what he is doing to us, the Pavlov's dog experiment!
Sit, heel, roll over, drool, BARK! (Bucks! Bucks! Bucks!) I hope the
winner plans on being a Z-pal and will make castings from it to sell
to the rest of us:)
