Actually I have two more chop nosed geeps on my roster both based on blue box Athearns. The orange coloured no 6 was my first attempt at any sort of modification in fact. It was loosely based on a picture of a GP9 on the D&I railroad in South Dakota that I found in the 4th edition of “American Shortline Railway Guide”.




The first picture taken some ten years ago shows no 6 pushing a covered hopper into the Benson east yard team track. Note the awful deciduous trees now gone, just leaving their stumps. Also the green coloured elevator has been moved to a new location at Colonel’s Crossing. In the second picture the geep is seen spotting a car at the team track.
