    Are the locomotives special runs by Prairie Shadows?

    Yes, those NAR units are from Prairie Shadows. I think done by Atlas.

    Yes, they are the Prairie Shadows engines, but they definitely come in Atlas boxes.

    They are some of my favorite locos to run. NAR had to have had one of the most attractive paint schemes, ever (y).

    I've been tempted a few times by the Rapido GMD1's for NAR, but they are usually beyond the budget, and also they don't have the locomotive names on them.

    I've been thinking of upgrading these GP9s slightly with correct horns, hood mounted bells and winterization hatches, but they definitely photograph well as it is.

    I ran them at Supertrains in Alberta a couple times, and I was always hoping someone would recognize them.

    Having built and modelled C.P. on the Thompson River Layout here in OZ. I have a soft spot for the CP & CN.
    Keep up the nice work.
