Hi there -

I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone out there has modeled Lehigh Valley locomotives in HO scale? I would like to try modeling an SW7 and have some questions about what parts to use (like spark arrestors, for example). Thanks in advance -

Bill

Thanks for the tips. There is some really good info on those sites, especially the lvrrmodeler site. But, seems like there isn't a whole lot of info out there on the SW7s. Probably not too common to model one. In any case, should be a fun project to get underway. I'll provide updates along the way...

Thanks again -

Bill
