    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 . . .

    Interesting...let me know when they break out the maroon paint.

    Though for roads like IC and BLE, there are still units running around in those schemes as they were painted by those actual roads

    There's been a incident involving those units. The IC and BC Rail units were photographed without permission from the paint shop, a breech of contract on the Contract Shop's part, possibly leading to lawsuits.

    Isn't it ironic....
    In this community we have rules. Some EULAs say we're not allowed to reskin. So if anyone does reskin one of those models, they better not post any screen shots. What we have here is the same kind of rule, only this time it's real life!

    As one of the Facebook page comments says.......

    "Maybe (sadly) we have more important things to worry about in our world of to-day..........?"

    Sounds like a silly squabble between 4th Graders to me

    Not really much of a squabble. As a contractor, you sign a NDA. Violate the terms, and there are consequences. Quite common in any line of business.

    Indeed but the only people making anything out of that are the Lawyers. I thought petty litigation had been curtailed over there? It almost destroyed the US general aviation sector back in the 80's
