    Looking for paint matches now :eek:)

    QUOTE=pray59;767044]What would really be cool, is if MTL would make 2 Tone Lowey Green NP ABA sets, and paint their passenger cars to match.

    The NP scheme is one of the most attractive schemes ever applied to a passenger train, yet rarest to see on a layout.

    Don't want to give MTL too many ideas. Former WICT F7's

    May have been sold & moved from Janesville to Michigan?

    Awesome News Joe! I'm going to buy 2 ABA NP sets to start!

    The NP Historical Society is supposed to have official paint chips ready for all the NP colors, but I found that Tamiya XF-26 Deep Green, and XF-21 Sky are perfect matches for the light and dark green. The white stripe is just plain white.

    Original paint chips are in my opinion just a guide. Putting the exact colour on a Z scale engine it will appear too dark. The overall apperance must me right. Golden rule: smaller scale -> lighter colour

    chassis only?

    Will there be just the chassis only available? I might finally get around to motorising my Pennsy 'B' units.

    Will it include the snow-plow and winterization hatch?
