Deco Question for Atlas on GP40 New Run

Cory or Paul...

The PC 3171 is shown with a red "C"  - I believe this should be an orange "C"....  It's hard to tell but they look like white handrail ends, which usually were yellow....

Thanks,

- Lou

Thats what I was thinking the orange C appeared only on a few GP40's, I have an undec GP40 and PC decals to do one, I might still by one of the PC's but would have for sure if they did the orange C, then I could have used my undec GP40 for a B&O or Chessie unit.

A list of orange C units is here http://forums.railfan.net/forums.cgi?board=PennCentral;action=display;num=1373563605 and 3172 is listed, so Atlas should be doing the orange.

That number IS one of the Orange "C" units for sure...    I have heard that this had something to do with the New Haven but I doubt it since these were delivered months before NH "joined" the PC party.

Could well be that the plan is to do Orange and the graphic is just incorrect, but I want to be sure since this is not the same color as the early Red "P" units...

Hmm... I think it turned
RED from embarrassment...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

Were there both red and orange Cs or is this just the wrong shade?

No, just orange "C"'s on this particular set of GP40's....

For all I know they are well aware of this, but the artwork sure looks red to me.
