    I Love the Bigger SD80 & 90/43Mac's but since BNSF never owned them I have no refferance photos to go by. I was going to wing it and use the basic Yellow Swoosh scheme instead of the H1 ( since it's now reserved for the smaller units ) or the H2. so I was wondering if any of you know of someone who did this already?

    I remember a model railroader or an N scale Magazine that had someone who did this but I can't remember which one it was.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have two SD80Mac's and one SD90Mac I want to do in the Yellow wedge scheme and the way ray did his striping is what I wanted to know about. I think the top stripe above, looks good in-line with the radiator grill, I was going to put it below the grill by half stripe but even looks great.
