    Default CN Heritage engines

    Seeing that CN has recently begun the process. GTW is already complete and running; IC and BCR are in the paint shop. A better shot of the GTW unit is shown here:

    Ya, this is cool stuff. I need to keep my camera in the truck, and get over to the Leithton Sub to see if anything mosey's on down the line over the next few weeks!

    Maybe this will persuade TrainSimulations to finally produce some GE Tier 4 locomotives . . .

    There was never a CV Zebra Stripe unit in real life, a better choice would be a Larson Green unit.

    I think the CV scheme they’re proposing is the basic black/CN red ends and the white CV noodle. I completely agree that the green would be a much better choice.

    Fess up Geoff, neither one of us knows what they are talking about, neither has first hand knowledge of the actual facts...just all supposition from both of us. Neither are privy to the contract or any non disclosure agreements ( if any exist )...so we're both just babbling to hear ourselves.

    ...of course you will take the devils advocate course and rebut even that statement!
