    There is a nice 35mm slide of SLSF 2000 Fair Play currently listed on eBay. The E7 is in its original red & gold/white striped "Racehorse" rebuild scheme. You can clearly see the blue coonskin on the nose.

    The bidding was at $31 when I checked a few minutes ago. Who says eBay does not work? A very rare item for the winning buyer, and the seller will receive a nice price.

    Wish I was rich. :(

    Very nice slide, Ken.
    Another slide listed -Just thought I would mention that I think you can add #232 to your list of 4 stack VO-1000's. Those spark arrestors on the stacks are awesome!

    ...in fresh "Meteorite" livery, no less. How could you not love it?

    Stunning picture.

    Trying to figure out what's going on with the rear truck. Not painted yet? Sitting on a temporary shop truck while the rear truck is being worked on/painted? Certainly leaves a bit of an "unfinished" feel to the otherwise spectacular freshly painted unit.
