Lee Turner’s large following of customers keeps him busy near all the time. This winter he has seen a lot of PRR and Eastern equipment in his shop. The PRR E-8 shown above is a Key model. At the request of his customer, Lee rebuilt the pilot assembly and matched the factory paint. Once complete with the modification, Lee weathered the model consistent with the road principal passenger power.
Pacific Limited imported a number of highly accurate brass models years ago. The cars are sought after by modelers and collectors. At a request of his customer, Lee painted the models in two different schemes for the Lehigh and New England.
Last but now least, Lee reworked an Overland Union Pacific gas turbine with a different number, details and weathering. The locomotive is a monster and must be something running on a large railroad. I do remember seeing these beasts at Cheyenne and hauling mile-long trains on the mainline. The black smoke and scream of the turbine was a sight to behold.
Thank you Lee.
