This SW 1200 was given to me by Bruce Peachey long ago, as an undecorated Proto 2000 model.  After the model sat in my storage cupboard for several years, I finally asked Sean Steele if he would take it, a box full of Juneco parts that I accumulated, and a decoder and put it all together for me.  I  also asked that he paint it for me as CN 1317, but without the CN logo on the hood.  Sean certainly did an outstanding job.  The idea was that the JSSX had purchased the locomotive from CN, and as such, it now sees regular service on the short local trains for which the JSSX is known.  One of these days I'll have to get around to adding wipers and mu hoses.
