    GM-EMD Locos

    Hi,

    Has anyone repainted any American GM-EMD locos into Irish colours over the years,I know some people have repainted switchers to look like a 121. I have and SD9 lying idle that I might paint in yankie grey with yellow snails just for fun. Would be a fairly easy job I reckon.

    Anyone?

    Not quite answering your question, but this lovely Athearn SW1500 already came in a sort of Black'n'Tan livery, so for fun it hauled Cravens on the layout for two years as a pretend 121 before . . .



    . . . it got a new body and was converted to this

    I've said it before, that really is a lovely job.
