New Horsepower on the MFTR
I splurged last week and bought an Athearn Genesis GP38-2 installed with Tsunami Sound for my little layout. I don't normally spend this kind of money, but I've been dying for an engine in this paint scheme for several years now... so there she is.
As far as I can tell, real EMDX #782 is hard at work in Dallas right now, however in my imaginary world EMDX simply leased it to the MFTR instead.
My two engines look so great lashed together I decided to create a short video to show them off and also to give you an idea of how I operate my model railroad.
UPDATE: Andrew from the Model Railroad Hobbyist forums shared this photo of #782's sister unit #778 being utilized on the Kettle Falls branch which just happens to be located right next door in the valley just beyond those mountain peaks I painted on my backdrop. Good to know I got at least one detail right on my railroad!
