    I'd like to see them released as well. I remember many amtrak F40's dirty and rusty back in the late 80's. I think your repaint look spot on.

    They were dirty in the 80s, but defiantly not rusty! You're thinking more of the late 90s.

    Great work Oliver. One thing I'd like to point out, and I'm sorry I didn't do this sooner is that 90368 has some very odd numberboards in real life. The photo I am linking is how the unit has looked for a few years now. Maybe a correction to that ACE file, and you could upload it as a quick fix. You'll note the numberboards are a very dark blue, and the numbers are white. This was the only cabbage to my knowledge that had/has numberboards like this.

    Hi John
    Yes you are right, I know about these dark number plates of #90368. But this unit had the "normal" number plates too.
    Please take a look here ... http://www.railpictures.net/images/d...1139698800.jpg

    A very clean vehicle, so I see. A pretty one, I like it.
    Maybe that's the reason, why I didn't changed the whole SLI textures on this NPCU repaint.

    Ok, maybe they were just dirty in the late 80's, in fact I just found the letter I wrote amtrak back then about using them wash rack more often. They actually wrote back at the time and said they were making every effort to have a cleaner fleet despite having a power shortage as they put it.
