upcoming Rapido VIA 6500s FP9A question for VIA buffs

Could this model be a good stand in for the VIA  6300s  FP9Au ? Are there external spotting differences.
Thanks
Dave B ;)

The 6300s are a mixed bag coming from 3 different CN orders, different types of winterization hatches plus some were converted to HEP power.

Thanks for your reply and comments.
Will probably order loco VIA 6525 that stuck around until mid 90s then went off to Algoma Central

I wasn't going to reply because I'm not anything close to an expert on ex CN Via rail FP9's, but I don't think you'll see see a better stand in for a 6300 than one of Rapido's 6500's unless Rapido decides to do a 6300 themselves at some time in the future.
