    I've been around. I keep checking in with this forum but have not had much time to post.

    I only get to see a few NS units in my part of the country (Texas) but they come through every once in a while.

    This forum let's me get my NS fix! Thanks to you guys that take the time to post the pics.

    HH...

    what are the highest numbers you have photographed of NS units in grey ghost??


    a friend picked up sd70m @2625 for me recently and I saw (no camera with me !!) c409w #9850

    looking to model these, but for the life of me cannot figure out that darn color GE uses for primer. UGLY pea soup green I guess...

    It is quite an ugly primer.... I am amazed at the difference in the primer colors between the GE units (pea soup) and the EMD units (tan).

    It's the last one, as all of the new NS units are the GEVO's.

    I think the SD70M's ended at # 2648. NS ordered more, but they will be SD70M-2's.

    I don't know... I have seen different shades of the pea green. I think it depends on how long they have been in service too. One thing I did notice is that the newer units have the "Warning" (stickers) applied to the unit in a red paint over the primer(In stencil); originally they did not.

    Good shots! As I said, the 70's are tan and the -9's are more grey.
