Bryan,

That's a good-looking unit, there.

I didn't even know turbines were out there in diesels. Can you give me a website where I can learn a little about them?

Thanks,

Les

Here the last photo of UP tender have step ladder detail underneath by the truck. The SD40-2 pulling the UP Fuel tender is testing to pulling a long freight train for to see any derail or trouble shooting. But good new i dont see any problem that tender at all.

Since I have to live with 5 ft radius curves my second impression was huge! - My first impression was of course, very nice work. Are the railings on top brass, or how did you make them. Was there a previous thread describing the build?
