    Just for the sake of realism, the only PC units to get the orange C were GP40s, if I'm not mistaken. It does look good on your GP35 though.

    The GP40's which got an orange 'C' were 3170 to 3186.

    The scheme was also applied to 5585, an ex-New Haven RS3 (oh, the indignity of it)!

    The GP35's which had a red 'P' were

    2252, 2254, 2255, 2263, 2267, 2282, 2291, 2294, 2317, 2329, 2337 (all ex PRR)

    2375, 2381, 2382, 2383, 2385, 2386, 2387, 2389, 2395, 2398 (all ex NYC)

    This information from R J Yanosey's book 'Penn Central Power'.

    Hi MsSheare,

    I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary on these PC units. But then, I have to study photos of the real thing to have something to compare them with.

    PC is well before my time. But PC has always interested both myself, and my brother.

    The New GP35 Locomotives have been uploaded to the Library today. These have been reworked a lot to make them look much better
    than the orginal let me know what you all think of them.

    Thank you to Malte Cordes who helped me with the Black texures Parker Boots for being very tolerant and understanding everytime I found a error. I am really pleased at this rebuild and I hope everyone likes it as well.

    Hopefully we will see a NEW GP 35 in the future Sand Patch Route.

    Wow I log in and see they are really doing good. Please let me know what you all think as the more input I can get, the better I can get at doing the rebuilds with the talented team I am pleased to work with.
