And the missing tie bar on the front brake hanger...

 

If you look hard enough there are other ways in which the model doesn't quite look like the prototype- the plastic cab sheets are thicker than scale steel, the wheel centres are different etc 

BUT this doesn't take anything away from the fact this is a superb photograph that will more than stand inspection from the majority of folks who aren't nit pickers like you and me......

Having now got one UP locomotive on the roster I bought another to to keep her company.

This version though is a GP40x #95, in reality built to try out some experimental updates that might be applied to later models. She is seen here in west yard at Benson coupled behind my standard GP40-2. The most obvious external differences are she has different trucks and flared radiator air intakes.

This time we feature something a little smaller a visiting yellow 44 ton yard switcher. The small switchers were built to the weight of 44 tons because they could be operated by a single man thus saving the owners the wages of a second man.

She is seen in the head shunt behind the Farmer’s Coop at Colonel’s Crossing.

I've had a look but all the pictures seem to be on flicker which I dont have...

 

Not sure I understand why you have this problem.  The pics are hosted on Flickr but they are set up so that when you view the pages on here you should see the pictures.  I've just been through the thread (I use Firefox browser) and they're all displaying ok to me.

 

Edit:  I've just tried Chrome and MS Edge and they display ok.

I only ever see pictures that are loaded direct to this site.... anything loaded via an external source can be problematic... if the external source is lost or the link changes then they will vanish from the thread.

 

Much better to load pictures direct to the site as then they will be here as long as RMweb exists
