      Glad to see the CN unit in its new home Rooster. Looks good ! That engine as well as my BNSF SD 70 made a clunking noise from day one. It didn't seem to affect its performance so I didn't do anything about it .

      All good Mike and thanks .....the front axle had missing teeth on the axle gear.  I just flopped the axle so it makes no contact with the worm gear (free floating it ). Essentially making it a 5 axle gear driven unit but it works great! Only issues the crew has noticed is when the toilet flushes the lights go dim. But a turbo plunger has been installed in the cab so all is working fine. 

      BTW ....noted your body mounted 830's which work well but I ended up doing sill mounted Kadees on the other unit I have and very happy with that install.

      Good stuff and still thinking about getting out the fillet knife but not sure.

      Guess I'm gonna have to run some trains to make page 3 unless others would like to beat me to the punch ?

       

       

       

      Shawn and his pullstring quartet would be perfect right now ?

      I bought a 50' boxcar last summer, finally got it to my place this week. Was told it wouldn't work on 4' diameter,  it is a little rough, but some slight modifications will get it there.
