    Default BLW/ZT PRR E7 and E8 Upgrade for PRR3 Set - As-delivered Green

    As delivered in the late 1940's, PRR EMD E7 and E8 models were painted DGLE (a.k.a Brunswick Green) with the 5 pinstripe paint scheme. Eventually, all of these units were repainted Tuscan Red.

    This set has been doubled in size with two E7 A-B-A sets and two E8 A-A sets. Release this week!

    E7s







    E8s

    Rick,

    Those look just the ticket. I think DGLE looks just that little more tasteful than the Tuscan.

    Thanks, Rob. Kind of strange that PRR were quick to repaint the E7s and E8s in the Tuscan scheme, but left the GG1s alone (IIRC, only 10 Tuscan GG1s?).

    I can't say for sure, but it might have been because the Gs were mixed traffic locos (British speak for freight and passenger). In the same way, only 4 of the boiler fitted F units were Tuscan. They spent a lot of time on freight.
    onen hag oll!
