Southwestern Pacific Mike McGinley’s freelanced railroad runs several different railroads and operates in a changing timeframe from 1951 to 2006. Our tour of the layout occurs in 2006 and features mostly Southern Pacific locomotives patched and running under Union Pacific ownership. A few Union Pacific locomotives are also included in the photographs and video of the layout. Mike occasionally runs his own freelanced Southwestern Pacific (SWP) equipment on the layout as well. The SWP layout is based in California, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado and features beautifully hand-painted scenes of red rock country, mountain scenes, and Colorado rivers. We include an article about the layout, many photographs, and video of the trains running on the SWP. Here is another great model railroad layout in action. Follow the trains that are featured in Trackside Model Railroading digital magazine.
My orange cat Luka was the superintendent of rail operations on Jan. 8, 2017, when I sent a Southern Pacific freight train of approximately mid-1980s vintage around my HO layout. The locomotives are all Kato: two SD40s and a SD45. The cars are Athearn, Roundhouse, Atlas, Bowser, and Centralia Car Shops. My LaPorte & Nevada layout is under construction and has partial scenery.
