    Thanks Rob. Now if you could just do the same with one of those modern 64ft ARMN jobbies, that would be great :thumbs: :D :)

    I see it has a slight lean which is encouraging when eventually I re-truck my stock to P48 :).

    I tried but it was part of a long manifest stopped for clearance on the main line, sorry ;)

    You get a few seconds warning, just keep an eye on the brake cylinder, when it closes.....it's going! I did get some of a reefer trackside but nothing too detailed and I was looking for a clean one, but every single one I saw was covered in graffiti half way up.

    I did get some better walk around, mostly two bay hoppers of varying designs and a 100t bottom dump coal gondola, plus some bigger three bay hoppers line side.

    Just around 6000 photos so it'll take a while to work through them. A decent two bay etch set up is my priority right now. It's fascinating to watch and listen to DPUs start and then configure when they go on line, lots of hissing and clunking.

    Rob, an ARMN is one of those big white reefers we saw covered in graffiti, they're modern stock so unlikely to be preserved as yet. That above is an Amtrak baggage car so photos would be good but if you can't get back not a great upset.
