EMD SD50 Reading & Northern

Description
The EMD SD50 was introduced in May 1981 as part of EMD's 50 Series and built until 1986. The locomotive was released as another attempt to provided a higher-horsepower model to keep pace with General Electric's increasing competition and its C36-7 model, that offered more power than the SD40-2. Unfortunately, EMD rushed the SD50 into production and it not only suffered mechanical problems but also did irreparable damage to the company's reputation as a respectable locomotive builder. Interestingly, after these issues were corrected the locomotive did prove to be quite reliable and today many remain in use on Class I systems.

Included in this package are paint schemes of the following railroads:
- Reading & Northern
- Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway

Great to see my local railroad finally represented in TF. I actually looked into trying to texture models myself because I wanted an R&N SD40.

Yeah boi. Live right in Port Clinton where their HQ and yard is set up. Love listening to their horns echo through Hamburg and the valley as they rumble past at night. They have a beautiful railroad. someone should make a Reading map

@Traincrazee906 - It was late because of all the passing freight. When the steam program was running (no longer is) Freight took priority. We got held up mostly in Pittston before heading into Jim Thorpe but it worked out because our lunch was delivered at the same point. To be honest, I think the FWRHS handles their excursions better than the VMT does with 611. Everything was very well planned, they even arranged for transport to the railyard for boarding. It was definitely my favorite excursion I ever rode. (and I have only been behind 765 once in my lifetime).

@Traincrazee906 - Partially true. It wasn't out of water though. They pre-arranged with the local firedepartment to get water shortly after it would leave Jim Thorpe due to the location of the hydrant. But no, it was not out of water. The FWRHS just planned for it that way since it would be riskier to get water later heading into Allentown (which was another 3hrs)

@Nick B. - I'm about 1hr 30mins away, but I have seen her multiple times since 2013. And another time was August 2015 when we rolled into Jim Thorpe behind NKP 765. then most recent 2016, even got up in the cab and blew her whistle :D

@NoAchievement4U Cool! I would love to see her in person too. I live closeish but never have.

@Nick B. YW! I am going to see 425 next month. Still working on her skin for the K4 (I realize its not the same type of engine, but its the closest I can get atm).

Still trying to figure out some issues with the sound.
