    Here's the first addition to my HO scale roster, almost ready for road service. It's an Athearn Baldwin S12, originally painted for New York Central. My plan is to customize and paint it for my free-lanced leasing firm, which is as of yet un-named. So far I've added wire grab irons, a roof-top "vapor" style cab AC, a Nathan P3 air horn, gong style bell, and snow plow. Other details, such as cab sunshades, cut levers, MU equipment, ditch lights, a rotary beacon, and truck lights. A cab interior may also be included, if I can find room for it!

    Hi Brian I think the Baldwin S12's were a very nice looking loco, lets see it when she is re-painted.

    I think UPRR colors would be nice. Yellow and gray with that red stripe... you can see them coming forever:D

    Or if you are more into nature, maybe a BN green would be better:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    But you're looking good so far:) :)

    Geez Brian, if you want a new paint scheme for that NYC unit, all ya gotta do is mask out the lettering and add a quickie PC mating worms logo! :) Actually I have an S12 too and left it in its NYC color scheme. I like your detailing!
