The Puttman Locomotive Works Product line will begin carrying the full HO Scale and O Scale line from Big Dawg Originals.

BDO Announced today on his facebook page…
“I would like to announce I will be spending more of my time working on models and making masters of engine shells that have been suggested along with some freight cars and starting very soon I will hand the sales of the HO and O Scale over to long time friends and dealers Aric & Bryan Hartle of CMR Products who have been selling our HO shells , cabs and parts and soon will be carrying the entire line. Sales, Production, and development is a huge job to do and way too much for 2 people so I will soon be shutting down for a while the web site, and eBay store and sending everything over to CMR Products starting on April 15th . This will free me up to do what I enjoy the most and that is build masters and my partner will do the production. More details to follow in the coming days so don’t worry I am not going anywhere my face book page will still be here for suggestions and conversation.”

The CMR Products line of N Scale Shells and Detail parts will be combined into the Puttman Locomotive Works product line.

ICG chopped the short noses for better viability, changed the control stands for short hood operation, and overhauled the locomotive prime movers. Additionally Dynacell Air Filters were added to the locomotives.

This Conrail GP8 Chop nose nonDynamic shell would be compatible with Conrail Numbers 5402, 5403 and 5405. Also effective for Nittany and Bald Eagle #1602.

N Scale Frisco / SLSF RS2M

The St. Louis–San Francisco Railway sent 5 of their aging Alco RS2’s to EMD for rebuild in late 1959 and early 1960. These locomotives were rebuilt similar to other EMD RS rebuilds where the long hood was replaced with a GP9 long hood. In this case, the RS2’s received a GP9 Phase 3 Long hood (replaced 2 36″ domed fans with a single 48″ domed fan). Frisco’s RS2M’s were returned and numbered 550-554.

CMR Products offers the Frisco RS2M Locomotive shell that will fit on an Atlas RS3. CMR also offers other N Scale Alco rebuilds including MKT RS3M, Rock Island RS2M and Rock Island RS3m. HO Variants are also available through Big Dawg Originals and on our site.

N Scale Conrail GP8/GP10 Chop Nose

During Conrail’s Early years, reliable motive power was in short supply. In an effort to tackle this issue, Conrail sent 9 GP7s and 16 GP9s to Illinois Central Gulf RR’s Paducah, KY shop to rebuild the locomotives. ICG chopped the short noses for better viability, changed the control stands for short hood operation, and overhauled the locomotive prime movers. Additionally Dynacell Air Filters were added to the locomotives.

  • Conrail Chop Nose GP8s – #5720-5728 – Later Renumbered to 5400-5408
  • Conrail Chop Nose GP10s – #7560-7575

While later rebuilds did not have the chop noses, these early models can provide some diversity to your Conrail roster. You can find variants with and without dynamic breaks.

CMR Products offers chop nose variants in both the GP7 and GP9… both with and without dynamic breaks. To finish up your model, grab Innovative Modeling Products “Dynacell Air Filters” that can be glued to the side of the cab for that finishing touch. Innovative Modeling Products “EMD Exhaust Stacks” can be added if you need a couple extra exhaust stacks (depending on the prototype).

N Scale GP30B Locomotive Shell

Over the weekend it came to my attention that we haven’t advertised the numerous shells we offer. We will be taking some time to go through our various offerings and sharing what information we can find about the prototype locomotives. Our first locomotive we will be discussing is the EMD GP30 B unit.

Union Pacific was the only owner of the GP30B unit. They purchased 40 in total, numbered 700B-726B (freight service) and 727B-739B (passenger service). The passenger service locomotives were equipped with steam generators. A 1200 gallon water tank was located inside the car body adjacent to the generator.

The passenger GP30Bs were used with the SDP35s on Vietnam-era troop trains between Fort Riley, KS and the west coast. They were also used regularly on secondary passenger trains. Sometime in the 1970s, all the GP30Bs were placed in freight service and the steam generators were retired inside the locomotives.

While some GP30b’s were retired due to wrecks, by September 1981, all Union Pacific remaining GP30b’s (28 in total) were in storage. In August 1983, the GP30b’s were transferred to Salt Lake City to have their prime movers removed and used to repair a number of GP30’s. The B units were retired September through November 1983. Most were sent to the scrappers in 1986.
