Let's start a new Proto 2000 Locomotive Video Series

Looks like we have a bunch of work ahead of us! Be sure to subscribe to follow along with the progress!

I'm eager to share the process of transforming the Proto 2000 GP18 into the MP Rail variant.

In this video, I discuss the upcoming videos I will be working on, covering everything from testing and cleaning our GP18 locomotive to the DCC installation with sound!

After the fun of wiring for DCC I will also work on painting my very own locomotive, and using waterslide decals to add our logo and other details to the engine. Share your thoughts in the comments; I'd love to hear if you've tackled building any Proto 2000 engines with DCC and sound. Let's start a new Proto 2000 Locomotive Video Series together and dive in today!

Let's start a new Proto 2000 Locomotive Video Series! I hope you will enjoy this video series but also be on the look out for our fleet of other locomotives, rolling stock based on buy outs from other company's, new purchases and more. You can view all of these on our site at any point and time.

Painted in multiple paint schemes using our made up logo and colors scheme for some added fun! You can follow along with the process by visiting our blog or check out the layout updates page where we will keep you in the loop with our progress. Want to know the type of tools we use? We are providing a list of all the types of tools that we use on the M&P Railroad.

This is the best part about coming up with your own railroad. You can take other paint jobs you like and mix them in with yours. It's a pretty unique process and makes for the ultimate creative experience when apply decals paint and more.
