    Aaaaaaand.........here's this one. NS did a good job as usual, but sadly they didn't have much to work with. Nor did they really have to try very hard.

    Heck, I always thought it was just plain filthy.

    Now, granted, I know Penn Central was a predecessor of NS, and is therefore a fallen-flag. However, for a lot of folks it reminds them of how bad railroading had gotten. The only black scheme more minimalistic than this one would be Norfolk & Western's. Also granted, they did a nice job of representing the PC paint scheme. And, there are actually some folks who are PC fans.

    Still..............methinks I'll pass on this one. To each his/her own........

    I loved the PC green boxcars. Never really saw PC locos here(too far south) lol. But I like the NS unit.

    Yep, the 1072 more than makes up for the previous offering. Matches the 2nd-generation EMDs to a tee.
