Does anyone here happen to have a pic of a USA GP30 lashed up to a GP38?  or how about a USA SD 40 lashed to a 38-2.  thank so much.   im thinking of purchasing another loco but not sure to mix it up or keep the same models..trying to go for realism and possibly a bigger loco like the SD 40 but im using 8' curves and dont know if its gonna be a problem to run a big engine like that.

Jason,
I believe I can accomodate your requests.  These were all taken in my "cave" this morning.

A USA GP35 (shortened and doctored from a GP38) and an SD40T-2 (lengthened and doctored from an SD40).

The same T-2 with a USAT GP30.

The GP30 with a GP40 (altered from a USAT GP38).

Bonus pic.  The GP40 with a GP9.

Sorry I couldn't take any shots on my railroad, buyt there's the small matter of 3' of snow on the ground.

Cheers,
Matt

wow Matt great pics, However all your stuff is altered and stretched..lol.. i was looking for stock comparisons of an sd40 with a Gp 38-2 or a Gp 38-2 and a 30. the top pic of your T-2 is nice that thing looks huge. thats not the real length of a USA 38-2? what can you say about 8' curves? thanks again

Jason,
The GP40 (engine #3134) is still its original GP38 length. The SD40T-2 has about 3/4" added to its length.

My minimum curve is 12' radius or 24' diameter. No problems with them!

Cheers,
Matt

matt, the gp 30 and the 38-2 look pretty good together. as far as lengths and size. i found sort of a deal on a 30 and i have a matching 38-2. just have never seen a 30 in person to say if it will look good behind the 38-2.
