Brooklyn Harbor? :?:

It was a typo, supposed to be "BG". Decided not to go with the lettering in the logo.

Decals applied, just needs a clear coat, windows and a few final details then it'll be lighting/sound and weathering.

Thank you Reinhard and Larry

Clear coat is dry so I threw on some handrails. The cylindrical MU Cable holder probably could have been placed higher up on the stanchions but it'll do.

I was hoping to see an earlier model EMD switcher in the Brooklyn & Greenville scheme.

What did you have in mind? I'm going to have a lot of similar switchers floating around on the future layout I'd like to change it up a bit.

I was just thinking that the NW2 - SW1200 car bodies are perfect for your scheme. Don't get me wrong, I love how the SW1500 looks, but a classic scheme on a classic locomotive is always a win/win.

I might consider another nw2 but I'm already going to have 2 sw1200s (one being the new rapido model). I would've liked an Alco S series for B&G but I'm going to have an S1 and S4 and just for $hits & giggles I got the Atlas Staten Island S2
