Ebay find - BN U30CG

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MINITRIX-OF-WEST-GERMANY-BURLINGTON-NORTHERN-7671-N-SCALE-DIESEL-TRAIN-ENGINE-/221174742872?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item337f0abf58

Just thought I'd post this up as I believe these are rarer than hens teeth and make a good starting point to bash into a nice ATSF U30CG. Also not sure the best place to post this....

Unlike the Burlington Northern and the red and silver "War Bonnet" Santa Fe units (which were decorated and cataloged by Mini-Trix), the "War Bonnet" blue and yellow (freight versions as Con-Cor called them) U28Cs were Mini-Trix products that were decorated and released by Con-Cor as stock number 0475-032012.

I have a Sante Fe red/silver U28 on my one-of-these-days pile. I want to repower and repaint.
