Grand Road Trains
Author: grandroad

As most modelers know if you don't practice your craft you can get a little rusty. I hadn't taken any photos since before Christmas so I got out all the equipment and shot a few. 

1. The RODNEX (Roseville to Denver Expedited)  power is entering the Terror Creek deck bridge. The train has 46 cars and power in in a 3x2x0 DP configuration. The deep hood signals are scratch built.
2. The PODNAR {Portland to Denver Auto Racks) is on a fill. The 20 car train has a 3x0x1 DP consist.

Since you are using SP style symbols, you really should rechristen the RODNEX as the Rocky Mountain Express in the spirit of the SP Pacific Coast Express (LAPCX / PTPCX). The Rocky Mountain Express could be symboled DVRMX / RVRMX. Cool photos, but I would love to see a video of the 46 car train.
