    Default Question about an old DW product.

    This is one of those cases where you THINK you might have seen an item on a web-page but not real sure. Did DieselsWest ever release an MP15AC in CSX YN3 paint? I know he did YN2s. If so, does anybody have one?

    I believe you are looking for CSX #'s 1176, 1185 & 1186 -- question...YN3 means Yellow Nose 3? I have them, they are still available, found in the archives section.

    The ones you showed is YN2. The YN3 paint is after the Conrail merger scheme. So, DW never had a YN3 MP15's yet...

    CSX Paint Schemes

    and this at locomotive.fandom.com, look under the paragraph "Locomotive Paint Schemes"
