I'm impressed with my new Bowser RS3. Great prime mover and Nathan P3 horn sound and good pulling power. 
Only took 5 years to become available after announcement!
Regards, Jim Evans

Thumbs up!  Bowser really seems to be coming into their own with diesels!

I think so to Jim. I have 2 SP&S C636s that survived the fire and are really nice looking units.
Fantastic shots an a wonderful looking club layout. Your lucky to have a great club close by.

I went west to chase C636 locomotives in BN Cascade colors and made a couple of nice chases.  When the models came out I ordered a trio of SP&S units.  They look really nice in Free-Mo service so I bought a pair of the Bowser SP&S RS3 units to mix with the C-636 consist.

Now I need to find a nice steel red SP&S caboose to compete the train instead of the NP hacks I use now.

My suggestion for an SPS steel caboose is find a model of a NP 1000 series caboose and paint it SPS bright red. The Northern Pacific (Brainerd MN) built two batches of cabooses for the SPS in 1951 and 1954.  SPS 860-71 were the 1951 cars and SPS 880-91 were built in 1954.

Very pleased with mine, I agree Bowser is doing a good job! And if you call them (remember telephones?) they actually answer the phone!!!
