    LOL. Yes it's in N scale... it doesn't fit the plans I have now for my future layout... but it'll be a museum piece or something lol.

    Any tips for rattle cans with csx colors?

    Whoops! I forgot a smiley in there. What I get for doing this when I'm exhausted. No harm. And honestly, I posted this to get you started. I don't saee a hole lot happening with this engine anyway, I got you and hopefully others into painting, decalling is straightforward and harder to do pictures of when they are wet, so it's served its purpiose. And it looks like an underdetailed high nosed version of 800 with painted windows. :p

    Tips for CSX colors:
    1. One full coat of CONRAIL blue. ;)
    OR:
    1. One layer of competition Oarnge, A mid-width masking around the top, one coat of Reefer Yellow, and a blue top by masking everythign else off, followed up by a large black C shaped logo with a kitty cut-out in it. ;)
    2. VIVA LA CHESSIE!!
    All of those colors (Sigh, and I suppose the colors ofr Crappy Service Xcelling should be findable between Floquil's cans and Model Master. I'd focus on the Floquil)
