    Ok I got 13 CNW units today off Ebay, was gonna repaint them all and decal for NS, but decided it would not be cost efficient as I already have 25 units in that roster. So now I'm sitting here scanning across the web looking at CNW pics and can't quite make out that dark green color on the handrails. Anyone know what the "official" color is?:D

    The green handrails are the same green as the cab and hood tops.. CNW Green. :D

    Floquil and Pollyscale both have the CNW Green shade available... Not sure if it would match up with the factory paint on the locos though (you might have to mix in some other shades to adjust to a closer match).

    Hope this helps.
