    Hmmm, something looks familiar with that loco. It's probably not a CNW, but if you remove half of the front, make it a 0-4-0 switcher, put the grill plate on the front, and put a really odd fan on the top, it might just look something similar to a certain type of switcher with no prototype at all...

    Do they mark the locations of electrical gaps?

    My guess would be to denote gaps in the rails, for either control blocks or signalling.

    Either that or passengers just aren't noting that "Please Do Not Flush Toilet When Train Is In The Station!" sign. :)

    I like those PRR units too! The EL RS2 is a beaut. I have an old AHM RS loco that I gutted as a dummy. I'm not so good at identifying differences among RS's and wonder if this is an RS2 3, or what?

    Those yellow spots mark the gaps.As far as signaling that's on our to do list.

    RS-2. An RS-3 has battery boxes by the cab on the short hood end.
