    This looks like a fun project Harry. My choice of colour would be grey but that would be really boring. It will operate on your layout so colour it whichever way you wish.

    please keep in mind this is not intended to look like the galloping goose of the rio grande southern rr just to capture the flavor of it.

    It sure has a look of it's own Harry. I am sure it will provide good service on your layout.
