    Silver Trucks? Good luck. The way railroads don't wash their locomotives on a daily basis, silver trucks are useless. Paint Em Black, as The Rolling Stones once said..

    That's a bit harsh...

    I can't say it's offensive. I wish they'd keep the wings on the shield. Moving the flags to the cab reminds me a bit of the flags you'd see on the front fenders of a 1940's diplomatic vehicle... and yes, it does have a bit of utility as far as swapping out the access doors on the long body goes.

    Since the flags never made it to local switchers, I wouldn't expect this to be on anything other than six axle road power.
