Chicago & Northwestern, and Cotton Belt PC-90s!

A Chicago & Northwestern Piggy-Packer at work in Chicago's Wood Street Yard. (see arrow in photo; photo from April 1978 issue of North Western Lines)
The St. Louis Southwestern Railroad (a.k.a Cotton Belt) was SP subsidary and assigned one of their PC-90s at the East St. Louis yard. (Photo originally from SP Bulletin Oct-Nov. 1977 - please excuse the photo scan quality here!)
Below are pre-production Wheels of Time HO scale models of the Chicago & Northwestern and the Cotton Belt units. Noticed the steering wheel, dashboard and driver's seat inside the cab. The cab is held in place by friction-fit, so you can lift out the cab and install a scale operator inside, if you so choose. Enjoy.
