      wheel sets and fresh markings. Think I'll take a trip over there tomorrow and check it out.

      • That is hansom looking train Karl. I like the FA's but I bet the PA's would make it more elegant. Like the New Haven PA's

        on the Yankee Clipper with the stainless steel fleet when diesels took over. Looking at the paint scheme a thought occurred

        to me. With the elegance of the passenger train in mind, have you considered continuing the stainless steel look from the

        back plate on the back of the Hiawatha observation car to separate the paint colors with silver pin stripes along the window

        bands and top edge of the roof? You could do the same with the passenger PA's. It's a fine looking paint scheme as it is.

        Railroads tended to do a little more to the passenger trains 'look' to attract passengers. That was their advertising. Just a

        thought.

                        I've thought about similar stripes but just don't have the ambition to do that. The PAs were going to be Aluminum

                        or Stainless with the dark green trim but my test paintjob was a disaster. None of the rousing success some on

                        Atlas reported with Alcad II, so. I think it will be a scheme similar to the FAs. Many years ago I did an A/B set of

                        Hobbytown Alcos in the two tone green with NYC like lightning stripes , the lighter green in the band, dark green

                        overall and white stripes. Champ decals not around to do that again.

                        • Karl,

                          I've used SMP Industries and Microscale stripes with great success on my New Haven Warm Orange and green scheme FA's, FB's and PA's.

                          Tedious work but the results were worth it. Again it's just a thought.
