This is the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) EMD GP9, built in late 1955.
It is one of the 3 surviving Pennsy GP9s (all built in 1955). I built it last month (it had no decals at the time). Please rate and comment.

This is me, the driver, posing by the cab.
UPDATE (January 18, 2010): I have added the railings on both sides! I know the railings aren't the same because I can't find the same long piece anywhere, and on one side, I had to remove the "7048" decal because of the end part by the cab.
UPDATE (February 26, 2010): I have added more details, and I replaced the cab's roof with the round-smooth one (the roof is now easily removable)! Now the PRR GP9 looks better!
UPDATE (March 4, 2010): I have added more railings on the front near the cab.
Wow! One of the best trains I have seen! How did you do the Penselvania sign on the sides?

Nice. Definitely good for a first engine. You've captured the overall shape well, but there are some weak points. try to add more details, the more detailed a train is the better. And if you're going to use scotch tape for decals, try to make it invisible. Put it on the back, you can make it in a roll, but double-sided tape works better. The look of scotch tape really detracts from the appearance of a MOC. Other than that, try to get a clean, white backdrop or surface to photograph on, and get an area with good lighting. This does greatly improve the quality of pictures you take. Just follow those steps and you'll be a great train builder in no time! ~T
