New CSX SD40-2 Repaint

Uploaded today in the file Library

Nice work

Seville/Pierson, Florida

Pierson is the fern Capital of the world, the a line runs right through the farms, working on how to simulate the fern greenhouses next

My Motivation

Growing up in the 70's/80's i became a fan of the SCL - as a kid i used to come to this yard and watch scenes like this all the time, wish i had a video camera back then
