    I have recently aquired a NJT U34CH. I notice there are alot of spots for grab irons but it didn't come with any. the instructions don't say anything about grab irons either. I am also curious as to the exact shade of orange is on the NJT locomotives. it looks alot like BNSF organge, but i can't find that either.

    I saw a Atlas U33C detail kit, and I imagine this would work fine on my model since the instructiosn say U33C/U36C, and because even in real life they are only outwardly different on the radiators.

    Lastly there is supposed to be a red "gyralight" on the nose. Would anyone know where i could get a kit, or fabricate one myself?

    Thank you,
