its iain from England ....
i have for some time been looking at the F units by usa trains ....
now 1950 diesels have not realy done anything foe me untill now ..
why .. well i came across a book in a seond hand book shop of just a
few ££ and had it away ..... books about any kind of locos or stock
about trains in the usa are impossible to get a hold of here in the
so i looked thru ..and kind of warmed to the idea of haveing a shot
at modeling .... an f unit .... or more like detailing the usa trains
locos ..as thay look the part ?
as we all know the company's that make the models usualy have one
body for all regardledd of detail changes between rail companys .so i
have thought i would try to model the sopac f units ..
one of the first things to catch my eyes are some locos have a ' set
of high level hand rails' on the roof of the locos it may well be
possible there some king of ice or brush guards ??? can any one tell
can any one recomend a detail book about F units from a model makers
point of view .. line drawings ... ect ... pics of loco are possible
to find on the WWW ... but a book is so much more useful
hope you can all help
