Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Since I changed my layout to be operated by a prototype railroad last year, I still didn't have the right feeling with the Union Pacific. I really like the sense of location and connection to early railfanning that it brings, but I still wanted something that connects me to a small, industrial switching layout better. My ultimate goal is to model a prototype with a very small locomotive fleet that allows me to easily model the entire roster. By chance, I stumbled on a prototype photo in my era that inspired a new direction for the layout, while keeping the physical layout itself the same: Rail Car America C415 #423:
This blog post will detail my project of building a custom Alco C415 in HO Scale and painting and decaling it to look like the prototype in the photo. I will take you through the background of the railroad, how it fits in my layout, how I decided to use the materials for this unique Alco, and all the steps for building it.
