That's a really nice looking NYC loco, did you paint it?

The Alco FA/FB is from a small batch series made by a & k tt modell and sold by the German retailer Siegfried Heerde. The engines were painted by the manucfacturer with a paint sceme on customer request. I'm probably the only one who owns that engine in NYC livery.

Great choice of paint scheme Joern. When I was a kid I saw Alco PA passenger train locos running in the SouthernPacific paint scheme but NYC locos didn't run here in western USA....dave

As a new project, I made a diorama of a typical scene in a modern limestone plant in the Harz mountains:

Nice "dirt"! It's very well done and realistic looking. Perhaps a bit of weathering on the car?

There already is a light weathering on the car. Maybe better to be seen here:

Maybe, the seams looks slightly too prominent on the model. However, it it exists also on the prototype, see: http://goo.gl/gRcAU
