LDD file included for these green diesel loco units!
About this creation
The diesel locomotive model was inspired by Valgarise and his model called "Invencible". It looked like an nice big ALCO model so I built it, a booster unit and matching passenger train sometime in 2014.
Since last uploading the engine, I changed the colors from black and red to green and black, with some dark bluish gray for the mechanical details. This will allow it to stand out more and be easier to take photographs of. (anyone who has made an all black model knows what I mean!)
The locomotive type is a American Locomotive Company (ALCO for short) freight diesel two unit semi-permanently coupled set, with both engines assigned the same number. The front unit where the engineer sits is called a Cab (or A) unit, while the trailing unit is called a Booster (or B) unit, though they can be used in more groups than just two, like as an A-B-B-A set as used on the Santa Fe Super Chief.
The letters BRS go on the three exposed studs, while 7996 goes on the nose's four studs. (BRS stands for Brick Railway Systems, the owner of the locomotive units.)
Here we see the newer green engine meeting the old red and black one.
