ATSF duplex GIFS by mrbill6ishere ATSF duplex GIFS by mrbill6ishere
The following are two types of Duplex engines that ATSF ordered in the 50s and 60s.

It started off in 1955. When the ATSF ordered a 6-4-4-4 cab forward. Hoping to try it as a good steam counterpart to the F3s that powered most passenger trains then. It was proven a success, and has worked alongside the F3s and ALCO PAs since on passenger trains like the Super Chief.

Several years later in 1959. The ATSF decided to create a freight counterpart to the Duplex. Thus creating a locomotive in the Bluebonnet paint scheme. Once again, it has found a space among the diesels and pre-existing steam engines.

I created the two engines by :icono484:'s pictures. I used a PRR S1 with a PRR T1 trailing truck as the base. Then, I placed the shells of an ATSF F3 and an ATSF freight diesel on them. After some touches. Viola!

The warbonnet has the nose of an F-unit, and the freight bonnet has the nose of a U-boat... if it were a U30CG nose, I'd be a little okay with it. I just don't like the U-boats.
