Indeed it is!  Nice to see some classic Rio Grande.

What is the TOFC flat car?  I spent the morning tuning some Walthers 89' Bethlehem flats, changing out the stock coupler with KD semi scale etc,

For what it's worth the GP30's from 3020 to 2028 were all turned into B units around 1972 until the late 80's when many GP30/35/40 B units were returned to A unit status.  During my modeling period they were B units.

I am lookiing forward to ScaleTrains offering the phase 1 GP30's in Rio Grande.

#2 with that awesome backdrop is about as realistic as it gets!

SPDRGWfan,
I am pretty sure it is Walthers, if not Athearn.

My model railroad is being set in Grande Junction and westward into Ruby Canyon.  But I don't have enough space or info to do it justice.  I like the scenery in that area.
