[MOC] New Haven Ep-6

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is my own version of a very short-lived locomotive on a eastern US railroad. The New York New Haven and Hartford used ten GE EP-5s on various routes from 1954 to 1974. All were later scrapped. I call this one EP-6 because there are enough differences(pantograph, pointed nose, etc.) to warrant a new designation. The nose is full of SNOT, but was not significantly difficult to build.

New Haven Ep-6

I would love feedback on what can be improved.

The NH lasted for 80 years. Nearly as long as the NYC

Oops. Clearly my research was not thorough enough.

It's a nice amount of detail and shaping crammed into a small space. I like it!
