I ran the Greeny last Sunday taking the place of the F7. Ran the Crenshaw line all day without any problems. It is a real workhorse that most people take for granted. Probably a good idea to give it a little TLC once the F7 is back on line. Can't hurt to give it a complete go through, plus maybe a little paint and some detailing.

I am thinking the greenie should get the pacific harbor line paint job, might bring it up in the next meeting, F7 will be down for about a month I am guessing, lots of little fixes and now I am working 7 days a week go figure.

hay how about painting the greene up like Joe's car I think I can fined a fake blower for the top and just think how good the flames would look

Could we put some spinners on the wheels? Some neon lights underneath and some dingle balls in the cab? Maybe some hydraulics to make it dance on the tracks!
