I'd go for the (second) best railroad ever- Espee. Do I get extra modellers points if I do one like this?

And NS would be my second choice, I see lots of those!

Actually... it's a points deduction!!!
Many of us on the far-Left Coast consider any application of Harbor Yellow over the classic SP Bloody Nose paint scheme to be a cultural norm violation.

not to get involved in the SP / UP debate but, I think that would make a very interest weathering project.

That was part of my comment (along with pulling Richard's leg a bit!). It looks like it had quite a fire going, replicating the missing paint, rust, etc would be something! There are a couple Youtube videos that show GE's belching fire out the exhaust, looks like this one got carried away?
It reminds me of an Erie Lackawanna story from back in the 1970's when the EL and New Jersey Transit bought GE U34CH's to pull commuter trains. They had some problems, and one engineer was hear to comment that "GE should have stuck to making #*!@! lightbulbs!"

"GE, we set good things on fire!"

(I remember hearing this ditty as a kid, taking the mickey out of the GE jingle/slogan "GE, we bring good things to life!")

They certainly made good refrigerators. My wife and I bought a used one in 1968 that was said to be 8 years old at the time, we kept it till about 10 years ago when it would have been about 46 years old and never missed a beat. It's probably still humming away under the landfill as we speak.....DaveB

Ingo, absolutely beautiful work. Congratulations! . . . Maybe a few of these need to be running at the national? As a power move, maybe, since we don't have much contemporary rolling stock, right?

SP (Speed Lettering) and CNW would be my first choices...
then possibly UP and the much more complex AT&SF Warbonnet.

Is there any desire for the CSX, NS, or one of the BNSF schemes?

I suspect general discussion should take place here... personal 'want lists' by PM.

There is a desire for CN :grin: :pray:
