    In light of this weekend, I thought it would be cool to see what locomotives you have are in bicentennial colors or some kind of American tribute. I really want to see what you guys have painted up but realize us painters are the minority here. So in light of the 4th, lets see your bicentennial and tribute locomotives, I'll start.

    Try to ignore the unfinished T-Trak module. BN SD60M, #1991 Dessert Storm Employee Tribute locomotive and matching caboose. I painted this Atlas engine and caboose 10 years ago. Just a few details on this one, would like to go full detail on a future one.

    B&M GP9 #1715 while not as colorful as the B&M GP38-2 #200, she did receive the bicentennial stripe and Minute Man on the short nose. A few B&M Geeps received similar treatments.

    Thats what I got, I also have a Kato GS4 in AFT, but that doesn't count since I didn't paint it;)

    Post what you got. Have a happy and safe 4th and thank a Vet!:flag:

    I cracked out the MT Bicentennial boxcars for the occasion.

    This last photo takes me back to my visit to the Freedom Train in 1975. It was displayed at the site of the Aurora (Illinois) shops which BN had yet to demolish. 4449 was the steam locomotive pulling the Freedom Train for that part of the journey and BN brought their diesels. All I need is SD40-2 1876 and I'd be set.

    I don't have any (I've kicked around doing a CSRY 1 or 2), but man Jim, I thought that was a proto pic of the B&M 1715

    All I have is the Kato BN 1776, got an SD40-2 that I can paint to 1876 one day.

    Got decals for 1991, but need to get me a new SD60M shell.

    My buddy has bicentennial units from most of the western roads that had them in N. Pretty impressive when he puts them all out

    All I've got, is the pathetic version that Bachmann did.

    I have Milwaukee #156 Bicentennial but no pictures to post yet so here's the other end of the train.
    This one was done back in '05. Remember that logo?
