    Default Guilford/Pan Am GP40's, SD40's, etc.

    With the talks of Pan Am selling their EMD equipment off to LTEX, and GMTX, replacing them with C40-8's and B40-8's, I figured it's time to come back to these. A look at #300, 301, and 345, 345 having "GATX Owned" under the cab.

    301 sat in the deadline for years, as a result, heavily faded and sun bleached. As of now, I will be focused on the 300 series, both MEC and B&M units. Later I will focus on the 500 series, as well as the 600 series. I may do the 3400 series as well..

    Thanks guys! It's actually pretty simple seems I already had the basic paint schemes done prior to these numbers, It takes maybe 5-10 minutes per unit to produce. At this rate I could have all the low hood GP40's complete by next weekend.


    More. 302-309, up next are 314-321, 344-354 for the MEC portion, and 328-342 for the BM portion.

    More,
    Will be finishing the MEC/BM portion, going back through, and individually weathering and detailing as needed. Though to be fair with the Guilford Gray, a lot of dirt and grime isn't noticeable, as it is on their Pan Am Blue.

    Very nice Shawn!! This set looks like it'll even be better than your GP35 set!

    I hope not, considering the GP35's were newer paint textures than these currently use.
