    hello folks


    i'm currently tired of custom painting cp rail units and considering to do a few leasing units. since i have a few sd40-2/sd45 in stock i would do them first.

    what leasing companies would you like to see ?
    which roadnumbers ?
    paint job only or fully detailed ?

    Well can't say much about the details, but I really like lease units. They are able to be used in many different applications.

    Hi there Sandro,

    I picked up a couple of the Kato AC4400 in the Blue and White colour scheme of CEFX. I like to run them with my CP AC4400s as I have seen quite a few of the 1:1 unit running around here.

    I have always wanted to custom paint some of the older units CEFX runs that are still in their original livery. Often I have seen SD-40s in 1:1 in UP colours that have their logos painted over along with the road number.

    Here is a link to a great site with road number details and pictures of the CEFX fleet. http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/locolist.aspx?id=CEFX&Page=1

    I think that if I was in the market I would likely be interested in a 'patch' job of some sort. Since I'm still anti-UP maybe a heavily weathered patched X-UP something. I would also be interested in a fantasy line of some sort.
    Detailing? Because of my vision - not so much. I have to add that if I had a person of your caliber doing the paint job, ya, maybe I would ask for it to be super detailed.
    Again, I'm just speculating.
    I wish you the best.

    I just recently had a SD60M that I redid as a lease. There is no prototype of this I'm sure, but I thought it would be fun anyhow.

    Who doesn't love leasers? My bench is covered in them.

    Have you thought about doing any Cargill units? There are lots of grain elevator fans out there too...

    I've always liked the ex QNSL SD40-2s that HLCX had. I still need to finish the weathering on mine.
