You definitely have to do Chessie. Just out of curiosity, what kind of engines will these be?

Chessie is as big a part in CSX's history as Conrail is to NS. Although, technically, Conrail is also part of CSX's history, also.

Just a tip: take a loco that you use a lot, such as a SD70ACe, and paint JUST the underframe. Then, save it as a base loco, and then anyother time you need to color one, use that as your base, so the bottom will already be painted. Be careful though, you will have to save as or you may lose your base loco.

Or if you dont feel like painting the underframe, take a loco that has already been painted and repaint it, that way the underframe is painted for you.
