New project - the RS3m


I just received this resin shell of the Katy's RS3m locomotive. I'm not much of a modeler/painter/builder, etc., so this will be a long-term project, I'm sure.

Katy's fleet was originally built in the early 1950s by ALCO. The Katy had them rebuilt in the late 1950s by ALCO competitor, EMD, who rebuilt them with GP9 long hoods to make room for the larger EMD 567 prime movers.
