Warbonnet Posted April 17, 2012 Share Posted April 17, 2012 Like Union Pacific, Norfolk Southern are painting up some of their new locos in heritage schemes to pay tribute to railroads it took over in the past, or that they can trace their lineage back to. Unlike UP, who used 'the spirit' of its former railroads to inspire fancy fantasy paint jobs, NS is going for true replications. A full list of what they plan to do is here: http://www.nscorp.com/nscportal/nscorp/Media/images/heritage_images.html Liveries will be carried by either a GE Gevo or an EMD/Whateverthey'recallednow SD70ACe If anyone is feeling flush then Overland Models has announced that they'll be making all 19 heritage paints in HO brass. Yours for $1,060 a pop. http://www.overlandmodels.com/news/?p=205 The first Gevo has been released in Conrail livery. Must say it wears the big blue well http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=392356 The next heritage loco is another Gevo, this time in Southern livery. Have to say, stunning! http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=392712 Loco number 3 - Gevo in 'Nickel Plate Road' http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=393441 Central of Georgia http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=395019&nseq=2 (unbelievable picture) Norfolk and Western http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=394626 More on the way! Anyone want to write to IE and see if they'll pump out a few 201s and 071s in retro liveries? I think the ICRs would look nice in orignal orange and black!
