GP-40 Pulling 28 Evans Box Cars

Post by Tim Barta » Sat Dec 03, 2016 3:02 am

Putting an Aristo Craft Rock Island GP-40 through the paces at Oleander Yard on site of Keith Stratton's KD Rail. 28 Aristo Craft Evans Box cars with metal wheels make up this consist which the GP-40 handles with ease.

Great engine. I have three on the K&E railroad that are my main runners. I normally pull 20 2 bay hopper cars, but I do that with two engines in tandem. Really like those engines, though.

Wow! That is a lot of Evans boxcars.
Nice video! Wish we could have found just one of those Railbox Evans cars for our program but they seem to be impossible to find.
Looks great though.
We'll show your video to our groups.
Thanks for showing!
