It doesn't happen often, but with two of MTL's August releases... you can actually find a few proto-photos. :laugh:

First (to make Kelley happy)... ;)

MTL even put the correct trucks on this one! :woohoo:

(I wonder if the MTL version includes this Star Trek graffiti?) :huh:

You mean Kelly likes both of these items? Well if that is true, then he needs to let his fingers do the walking and walk them over his computer keys and order them from me. :o)

Hopefully MTL is getting CB&Q's colour scheme this time right....

It's looking pretty good. Of course they need to be weathered and you need to paint the vents on the side but still I am happy. Once could buy and an ABA and try to get rid of the "A" after the number and redo the marker lights, and then connect it all with draw bars. I don't have the years when they were all broken up and couplers were added, that is when they all got the letters A or C added. You could make the 168 into a 169 pretty easy too.
Gerd, Do you make any of those wagon wheel antennae? Those, along with wipers, MU hoses and glass would be the only thing I would add, as they mounted grab irons all OVER the engine and that would drive me nuts to put on.
