Modelling the Richmond Fredericksburg & Potomac
Modelling the RF&P
I model the Richmond Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad. Currently, I have painted locomotives for the mid-1980s era, including the following:

Currently modelled:

91, SW-1500
123, GP40
144, GP40-2
147, GP40-2 Photo unavailable

Out of Era

1001, E8A

In the Works

  • 81, SW-1200

  • 126, GP40

In the Plans

  • 133, GP35
  • 138, GP35
In addition, I am working on two Southern High-hoods, one GP38 and one SD40-2. 2773 and 3242 are likely numbers, as I have many photos of each.

Above is the old model page. Below is the new model page. Soon, the above will be replaced with what is below. Currently, the parts listed below are from memory.
