Have I explained myself?
Well why didn't you just say so in the first place?
I thought you meant you hadn't seen any pictures of them online. You do such a good job researching so many other things, it just surprised me that you wouldn't have done the same with the heritage units.
Well, I should confess that most of the schemes I have only seen in the thread on this site. But I HAVE seen them all
. I have seen others other places, but I don't take much interest in railroads that are defunct/merged that didn't run ANYWHERE near Michigan. Central of Georgia? Same thing with the paint scheme....I don't care that much because they are basically irrelevant to Great Lakes Area Railroads.
Ok I get the "I dont care about history" most young kids dont and that is a shame. But your blowing smoke again with the whole "Didnt run anywhere near Michigan" stuff. Of the units done so far CR, NKP, NW, PRR, all have MICHIGAN history with them. CR do I need to say more, NW, well until NS they ran all the old WAB trackage in Michigan, and had half intrest in the Shore Line. NKP, is how the NW got the half intrest in Shore Line and after the merger you could see there units into Michigan all the time. Plus the NKP, PM, Erie, C&O, were all owned by the same brothers. PRR, heay didnt that line run close to where you live, how is that not a Michigan history thing.
