    Default What should I call it? Let me know what you think

    This is just started but any ideas would be appreciated. This is about 2hrs work so far, so I still have a ways to go.

    This is what I'm trying to model it after. I wasn't going for an exact model, just used it for a general idea....should I make it diesel or electric? Opening doors or anything like that? What paint would it look good in?

    well it looks like a fast train! DUH!
    and it would look good in UP paint scheme!



    Union Pacific railorad is the the best railroad in the world!
    if we want it to stay like that we better pay tribute!
    Union Pacifc Railroad has ben around longer then any other MAJOR railroad. UP is the best MIX of all railroad stuff.

    Er, no, not in UP. Face it, UP is rubbish. Big and Yellow. So unimaginative. So, ancient. UP has barely changed its colour scheme in 40 years.

    Getting back to the point, Mike, call it a Velocia, or Rapidia or some kind of part italian/spanish inspired name (they all are these days). Oh, and paint it in a sort of white colour with big blue and red sweeping colours in a sort of high speed inspired colour scheme. Make two versions, diesel and electric. Just for GHIJK's sake NOT UP!!!! :D :D :D :D

    Well there is no need to mess with perfection now is there;-)
    I actually agree with bcdef on this one, that would look nice in Armour Yellow and Harbor Mist Gray. Put the winged shield on the front and City of Los Angeles on the side with some stainless trim on the bottoms. And yes make it diesel by all means. BTW you can call it an E10MAC}>

    PRR was Prefection. too bad they aint arround anymore. anyways, I agree with the color Idea white is good. use red and blue too youo could call it the "TUSE" "Trans-United States Express" it looks like something that could possible make a high speed network in the us work.
    that is my $0.02
