I stepped away from the layout and scenery for a little bit and decided to wrap up a couple of locomotive projects I'd had laying on the workbench since the fall of 2019.
I've always had a thing for Rock Islands "One Off" locomotives, this GP40 definitely fits the bill. It was in a wreck in Oklahoma sometime shortly after they were in the process of repainting their locos in new image. So when it got repaired, they gave the 4710 a partial paint job in the new image. It was easily the most well known Rock Island loco on the roster.
A friend of mine sold this unit to me after he started the process of painting it to The Rock scheme because he changed scales, so I decided to finish his project.
After getting them wrapped up this weekend, I took a couple of shots of them on the new Whitewater bridge. I also played with a new app for my iPhone called CameraPixels Lite. This app has the ability to take multiple shots of different focal depths (along with other options) which makes it easy to import them into Helicon Focus for focus stacking the images.
