Thread: NS Heritage Units

  1. Default

The blue didn't weather that well and even new units would look like hell within a year or so. They should've chosen a proper N&W passenger Redbird with the "Gothic" logo....now THAT would've been a classy unit!
    One one hand, I like the blue because that was the first N&W paint I saw. On the other hand, it's widely assumed that N&W went to blue because of the proposed C&O/B&O merger, so I dislike it...

    There are going to be plenty of red heritage motors coming up, and two black ones, so I think NS was sorta boxed in and settled on blue. I'm waiting for the Illinois Terminal, mice elf...

    Does anyone know the numbering system of these units? Is there some logic behind it?

    Looks like they started at 8098 and are counting up.

    Conrail - 8098
    Southern - 8099
    Nickel Plate Road - 8100
    Central of Georgia - 8101
    ???? - 8102
    Norfolk and Western - 8103

    The Pennsy unit looks amazing. Right now my favorite of them is the Nickel Plate, that scheme actually looks pretty awesome on a GEVO!
