Hello everyone!!! I have finally started my own freelanced railroad! It's called Glacier Railways.Its route is through the mountains of Montana (my layout is kind of themed Montana mountains). Its paint schemes are as follows:

*Glacier #1- Glacier green on sides, engine black on top.
*Glacier #2- Engine Black on long hood w/ the words "Glacier Railways" in glacier green & the cab & nose will be painted glacier green. Only seen on standard cab units
* Yellowstone #1- UP armor yellow w/ black top
* Yellowstone #2- DRGW yellow w/ black top

most,(if not all) units will have winterization hatches. I'll have pics of the FP45 & GP35 that I'm going to paint up soon, then onece I've painted them, I'll post pictures of them then, also. Until later, good by!!!

All right, I'm having trouble deciding what to paint my FP45 in: Glacier #1, Yellowstone #1, or Yellowstone #2?

Does anyone have an opinion???, because I can't think of which one myself!!!

(refer back to the original post to see what the paint schemes are)
