Karl, half of the blue applied
The real F7s were 100 and 101, the Whitcomb center cab was 102, the GP9's were 200-202, and the GP38-2s were 300-306. The FP7s, SD35s and Alco RS3a never were painted in this scheme and kept their original road numbers.Karl, I know this unit is a fantasy unit, but what number do you think we should go with??
HaHa, Greg, like I've never heard a 007 reference before. Fun facts, My father's name WAS James and when I was in kid in Baltimore we had an unpublished phone number (301) 426-0007. Someone at the phone company was a real comedian.Jerome: How about 007 for the unit's number since its a fantasy???
Tell me about it, I've done 2 F7s, 3 GP9s and 7 GP38DCs, but I'm not done yet, the 65 ton Whitcomb is up next, as soon as I can get the SW's done for the club.
Karl, I bet it's harder to match that curved line on the nose you have to do for the hood units.Tell me about it, I've done 2 F7s, 3 GP9s and 7 GP38DCs, but I'm not done yet, the 65 ton Whitcomb is up next, as soon as I can get the SW's done for the club.
Thanks Boris. Not too bad for a fantasy unit I'd say.Well, when in doubt, you can always paint them for the Penn Central .
