    Here is what I got so far. Made them from Athearn F7s. The decals are custom made off an ink jet printer so there not so good. Its a bad camera too soo its enough to get the picture. Have a few more decals to put on and some more details as well.

    All together close to $150 for all three. But they only thing is that no detail kits or anything are made for it so to get the one fan on the rear I had to buy three, and so on. The decals took a couple of tries so that cost alittle more too. But not bad for three locomotives. Two are powered and one unpowered. Hopefully I can put a sound decoder in the unpowered.

    Are you planning on doing the other A-Unit (NS 4271) in the future?

    Yeah as soon as I can see some pictures of it. I wanted to make sure they looked the same first. I don't even know if NS has finished it yet.
