Though I model the DL&W in the 1950's, when Walthers announced they were
releasing EL SD-45's, I decided to do a 1970's era EL train - SF100. To
start, I bought two EL Athearn Genesis SD-45-2's on EBay and now have a 30
car train. Eventually I will have a four-unit consist with two SD-45's
and the two SD-45-2's. My plan is to run the train at the Greeley Freight
Station Museum occasionally, which is an amazing model railroad worth the
detour if you are ever in Colorado - here's the link for the Museum:

I added Soundtraxx Tsunami 645 decoders, replaced the incandescent bulb
lighting with LED's with fiber optics, added a full crew, windshield wipers
and did some light weathering, including repainting the roofs with Weathered

Attached is the result, though I still have to weather 30 freight cars plus
the SD-45's when they arrive!
