Well, I finished up my crazy idea of making a short loco out of two E-8 noses I got from Rex. Why, I don't know, but here it is.
No real clue what I'll do with it either, could to my eggliner coaches I made, one is here in this pix. I wonder about myself
sometimes, but I had fun! My wife cut the lettering out of vinyl. UP symbol I did on papilio vinyl ink jet paper.

Hi Jerry 
Great execution of a fun concept. Would have been a good entry to the AWNUTS magazine. 
I find producing good whimsical models are a tough challenge and you did real good.

LOL Excellent job once again Jerry. I love seeing your creations. Instead of Eggliner loco, you could call it the "Double Yate" as in double E-8, get it? *Will runs and hides in lieu of no laughter* Seriously though, very nice, you should try this with modern diesels next.

I really, really like that ... engine.


Sometimes, it gets too serious around here. Great antidote! And yeah, I think it's great with the 'eggers'.
