November 2021 update: I’ve added a link to my open sourced Conrail Engine VSD pack. Virtual Sound Decoders bring sound cheaply and easily to N scale models. In this article, I’ll get started talking about my discoveries around them.
I’m using the post-holiday downtime to make some progress on a few projects I’ve got going: repairing my GP10 5863, detailing my new SW1500s: 9590 and 9594, and detailing my new GP7 5601.
I had some fun running a local around the BANTRAK layout setup at the B&O Museum in December of 2014.
I made up two batches of trees and finished the ground cover on the remaining unfinished portion of the layout. This, of course, warranted photos.
I was on a tree building and planting binge, and took some photos to illustrate my progress.
I’ve took a few more photos of the Apartment Door Layout and wanted to share.
Conrail’s aged fleet of roadswitchers underwent a rebuilding program. Modifications included reconfiguring air intakes, removing dynamic brakes and other internal upgrades. When outshopped, these units were classified GP8s (for units that began as GP7s) and GP10s (for units that began as GP9s).
