A nice colour Chris. It does look a little undressed: decals will most surely enhance it. :cool:

Thanks Alan. In the picture it looks brighter than it is. Once the motors, fuel tank, and handrails are back on it, it should really look nice. I almost did it in N&W blue but had the red paint on hand.

I agree with Hutch and Alan, Chris, the color is really sharp. I do agree with Alan though, I think windows, trim, and railings would add a lot to it!:D

Nice paint job Chris, it's going to be a smart looking locomotive when it's finished.
