    I have a Proto2000 Gp38-2 that is painted CSX. I want it to be Norfolk Southern. Does any company sell shells that can just be switched? I looked around but can't seem to find just shells. Thanks.

    Athearn used to sell shells. I don't know what the situation is now with Horizon in control. The Athearn shells only come undecorated in black plastic. You would have to paint and decal for the Norfolk Suothern. I'm assuming you are talking about ho scale. I don't know what is available in n scale.

    Athearn is also very easy to switch shells . You may be able to buy a dummy unit in the line you want and make the switch. I've done that before.
