N scale CN / IC SD70M-2 Legacy engine
This one almost made it to real life. A branch of the ICHS presented it to CN as a paint job for a real engine. It got some serious consideration but in the end it was rejected. I suspect mainly due to the economy but who knows. The idea was a long time in design and went through a lot of changes. The one thing which remained at the core and is visible here is elements of the City of Miami IC passenger train and a short lived paint scheme it wore. This was the basis for the way the paint is applied. Other than that it follows the general concept set by Uncle Pete to capture a lot of traditional elements of the railroad history. This also benefits from a full detail conversion using the SD70ACe detail, SD70M-2 conversion kit sold by Trainworx. As always, comment away. i would love to know what other people think about this one.
