F Unit Shots

Some views of the set of Santa Fe F units I made from Highliner shells on highly modified Genesis drives. The underframes have been modified with full underbody detail using some parts made by Hi-Tech Details, and a bunch of scratch built parts. The layout pictures are on the La Mesa Club's Tehachappi layout in San Diego.
