GP-30 and Mt Rainier
Author: M-420

Lets try this again...

BN 2249 was spotting sand hoppers at Spectrum Glass and has paused at the end of track just long enough for me to grab this shot of the GP30 with Mt Rainier in the distance.

I shot the 2249 in Woodinville (the location that my layout represents) in 1987...

Pretty cool. I didn't mean to be as negative as I fear you took my comment.

a Spectrum GP30 at Spectrum, or is that a P2K unit?

It is a P2K body riding on a Kato GP35 chassis.
Really, that is by far the best way to go to get a smooth running "beetle brow"...

Very nice. I grew up in the Bothell area in the 80's and 90's. Your work captures it well.

I was looking at how high the shell is riding above the trucks. Wonder if there is a way to lower that?
