Mt Newman and BHP Iron Ore locomotives CM39-8 M636

Hi All

I have been doing some layout cheating, in the early 1990s the Pilbara was going through a transition, the Alcos reign was coming to an end and the mantle was being transferred to the new king of the lode, the dash-8.

Here are some shots of my latest work.  Some CM39-8s and Alco M636 look a likes.

I have been working with some new paints, so far not too bad, not exactly a Accuflex replacement, but like using the deputy instead of the sheriff!

I will give a more blow by blow description when I have completed these models.

There are some more Pilbara stuff in the pipeline so stay tuned.
