Unread post by KVERBERK »

Here is my GP35 that I also weathered and patched. I really like running this as a consist with the GP30. Both have Tsunami 2 sound decoders and scale sound systems speakers.

Your 30 and 35 look great together!

I just noticed that your 35 is a later model because it has the thin frame where the bell is. In the older versions there was a drop at that point.

Good eye, I didn't notice that nor was I aware of the difference. I did notice that the fuel tank on the walthers model looks a little different. I thought the 35's had a fuel tank more like the 30? maybe this was later model feature as well? I'll try to post a picture comparison later.
