- May 1, 2010Hey Garth, all my congratulations! But as s.o. said in another forum, "Big Blows" and U50s are two different things. U50 were diesel engines with 2 x 2500 hp prime movers.

Yup that is what we did. The GP Chassis is easy to recover just snap a GP shell on it and it can go back too work.

Still need to change the side frames but that will take a visit to a friend to get some milling done. The headlights have been bored out but no fibre optic in place yet. The tender has metal wheel sets installed replacing the original wheels from Hallmark. Yes this is powering another of the Hallmark Christmas Ornament series. The first one being the PA in the Liberty Train set. There is some penalty using the heavy ender but with metal wheelsets I think it is minimized suffieciently. I plan to add more weight to this beast as well but for now I have it running.
