There is a guy around town who will custom decorate a loco for you in INRD. The guy showed his stuff with the CINTRAK group at the first GTE show. Really nice stuff. You might try to contact JJRailfan on this board. He probably could give you the guys contact info.

Yes, I can put you in contact with a guy who has painted nearly every unit on the INRD roster. Last I knew he was a few SD90MAC's away from being done. He may be at the Noblesville NMRA Show on Sunday. He sent me an email inquiring about booth space. Even if he doesn't get a table, he may show up at our layout (CINTRAK). I know he's done INRD GP38's (ex-CSX, HLCX, etc), SD60 (ex-Soo), SD40-2, SD90MAC, SD35, SD20, GP7/16. I think he's even done CF7's but I'm not sure about that.

The INRD SD60's are due in April not June as I had stated. They are doing 3 road#'s in analog and 2#'s in DCC.
HAPPY RAILS TO YOU

Atlas SD60 would be good off the shelf choice not requiring any custom painting. Custom painted choices includ Kato SD40-2 or SD90MAC. Either should speed match the 4141 perfectly. You could also go with an Atlas GP38-2 painted for CSX and patch like INRD #34 or #36 (can't remember which one).

It was 35. I don't know how close the ATSF scheme is, but INRD 36 was in blue and yellow. Might have been an ex SMA loco
The gates are going down and the people are starting to frown.

16 down, 4 to go.

Kinda off topic but is there any more pics of that layout from the GTE show?  I seem to remember some of it but seem to be a little foggy.  Thanks.
