here is my Ann Arbor railroad SD70Ace I painted today. not totally done with the trucks but I love it! I did the "Ann Arbor" writing and the ferry and the fog logo and I think it turned out great. in the near feuture I hope to get my hands on and Ace and paint it like this

I added the designation under the number "SD70ACe" and on the end of the locomotive you can see "The City of Ann Arbor" hopefully I will be able to buy this undecorated SD70ACe from Athern, or if I fine a cheaper one...

I hope to get one and paint it Ann Arbor orange, and do the works to it to make it look like the unit I painted
