I model one in the early 70's, and by that time they were just beat. The intention was clear that they were to be rebuilt to CF7's, so there was relatively little maintenance, no repainting, and from the looks of it very little washing. On a railroad that prided itself on clean road power, these were the exceptions and the dirtiest, grimiest locomotive on the ATSF layout. You've got a great start and its a HUGE improvement over the stock unit.
another quick update...added the MU and air/steam hoses to the pilot (BLMA products)....next come the etched stirrups, then I'll mask and spray the pilot and stirrups black.Thanks for looking,~Bruce
