Title: EMD E8 A-unit
Post by: daytona on June 14, 2019, 02:48:07 PM
just ordered the Broadway Limited 3630 N Scale EMD E8 A-unit unpainted, the reason why is it kinda looks like the Deltic prototype from the front as there is a lack of them , yes I know its not correct but I think it will look good in my world

Reckon it would still look better in the blue & grey of B&O  ;)

At the end of the day it's a bit of fun and will be an interesting experiment and, as always, Rule 1 applies, it's your layout, you run what you want  :thumbsup:
