This is what you can do instead of making up all of those different Railroads. Research some prototype engines and do drawings of those. I had the build the GP9 and GP38-2 out of other things becuase Eby hasn't done CNW ones yet. I think I might have to do some chessie engines next

Cool CNW stuff!

Here are some of my drawings. Most are 100% correct where applicable (fonts, etc.), such as correct truck details (open bearings), horns, top gear (antenna's), ditchlight position and pilot accessories, safety stickers, etc. AEI tags are also on many (not all) of my drawings.
