      The Chessie SD40-2 is back!

      Finally got me a set of motor blocks for it. I replaced both, then the battery wouldn't charge. That's my bad. So, back to RLD hobbies for a battery.......actually two. I'm putting one in the CSX SD40-2 as well. That just leaves a couple GP40's and one SD45 to get batteries in them, so I don't have to use a trailing car again.

      Just a little layout update in the video. Chain link fence is done on the semi truck side of the warehouse. I still need to put a guard shack in and some roof details. Then, the maiden voyage of the Chessie.

      I hadn't given up hope that USA Trains was going to eventually make motor blocks. Granted, I didn't think it would take two years!!! Then, about 2 weeks ago I was on Charles Ro site and saw them. So, I had to text Robby. Yep, he had some in stock! YAY! 

       

      She's in good hands Cuz!

      Just one question. How is that truck backed up to the loading dock supposed to be loaded/unloaded with the doors closed?
