On this episode of Large Scale Consolidated Live our guest is Steve Benko who has been into G scale since about 2010. The first thing you will notice when seeing Steve’s roster of locomotives and freight cars is most of it is all Canadian roads. Steve is a native of Canada and loves their railroads, who could blame him as the paint schemes are pretty nice! Steve does have an attention for detail and prototype accuracy as we’ll see during the show. Lastly make sure you check out Steve’s YouTube channel
So, what are some of the things we are going to see and discuss in this episode?
First Impressions of the new RailPro System and how it compares to Revolution as Steve started switching over his locomotives from Revolution to RailPro. Make sure you have your questions ready for Steve as we told him to expect lots of them lol.
Custom Brass work Steve has done which includes winterization hatches, bells/mounts and hand formed plows for diesels and steam locomotives.
Ball bearing upgrade for the USA Trains SD40-2 locomotive (Wait till you see this!)
Custom painted, decaled and weathered GP9 Steve just finished doing in Canadian National as well as other locomotives and rolling stock he has weathered.
Video of Steve’s former garden railroad (Yes, former. It’s sad but nothing lasts forever.)
Some live running on Steve's workshop layout (rumor has it we may see a live steam locomotive running) so be prepared for some Canadian motive power.
