Andy Coones: Very cool,,,,,nice weathering on the cars btw...
Marco Buijs: Great model, but the sound would drive me nuts within 10 minutes. I like the weathered MW consist.
trainssker: Has anyone responding to this video, ever heard one of these Monsters in LIVE operation? Just curious... I can tell you as a small child, I was watched by a woman who was crossing guard for the UP in Grand Island, Nebraska. When she worked, I would go with her & sit and watch trains at a very close proximity. I saw all three versions of the Turbines in operation over the years of their service. They were all amazing, but this one... WOW! When they started up...They got your attention! :-)
Paul Hebert: Beautiful model!
synicle0723: oh, and FYI,
athearn is contemplating producing this loco, turbine, and tender in the immediate future.
Granted, this is only "grapevine", but got this info from a loksound dealer in California, they will start production sometime this year for HO scale
synicle0723: biggest problem there was pertaining to the 10700 HP, the reason that wasn't pursued, the couplers couldn't handle the stress behind the fuel tender, the only reason this train came to be, the locomotive produced 8600 HP which meant the loco's could pull 175 cars average, at 10700 HP, the train would be just shy of 6 miles long, theoretically it was possible, but the idea was scrapped due to the couplers stresses, they would just shatter under the stress
Andrew Beeman: Does that have working suspension? It really looks great.
warbonnet64: Excellent video! And that B unit is to die for. I really liked your weathering work on the Matainence of Way cars. Which leads to my next question. Do you think you will ever be able to screw up the courage to weather the turbine? Take your time on that one and again, congratulations on a video well done!
katherinestation: @adaribros I did use Pinnacle Studio 12.
Adaribros Adam: What program did you use to make this?
katherinestation: @nyshortline Yes, you are right, they were very noisy,
nyshortline: I read they were so loud it was hard to hear their bells.
Lee Witten: @TWIGYBNSF Nothing yet on a possible big Blow by Athearn but I'm excited to see the U50 in the works. I've got my order for that. Perhaps their next turbine project will be the Big Blow, encourage them every chance you get.
TWIGYBNSF: @lewitten Wait athearn is comeing out with the Big Blow?
katherinestation: Thanks, I hope Athearn go ahead and bulit this wonderful loco!
Lee Witten: Great model. I'm waiting for Athearn to come out with this. I want #26 in honor of the one at Ogden Union Station where I volunteer.
katherinestation: @TWIGYBNSF Thanks, is a very nice model, but expensive. You can find one of this unpainted for that price.
katherinestation: @TWIGYBNSF Thanks, is a very nice model, but expensive. You can find one of thos unpainted for that price.
TWIGYBNSF: Super kool. I can't even find one. i am dying to find a cheap one under $1000.00.
katherinestation: @djegopiedra Muchas gracias Diego!
