    Cheyenne,

    Fantabulous looking loco's!

    I'll always like any SP&S engine and any 'N' SD40-2 in Cascade Green is reason the cheer!!! I have yet to pull out the airbrush since returning to 'N'... those Dash 2's have got me thinking...

    Jeff,
    If SD40-2 earlies are too pricey for you, snoot chops are the way to go!
    It is intimidating to strip and repaint your first loco, but once you get your first one done *and not have to restrip and do it all again when you mess it up 3 times* it's all worth it, and then the fire is lit, and you start painting like mad!

    Great paint job on your locos hemiadda2d. I tried the link to your "how to" and found it wouldn't work
    It works now. I guess it was because the Atlas forum was down for a couple of weeks

    Good paint job, but a little clean for me. Youll find that a little Poly-S dirt on the trucks go a long way in making them look a little bigger.

    Cheers
