    Hey all, I am from just south of Boston MA and I and a frequent visitor and rail fan of the Fore River Railroad (or Fore River Transportation). I was wondering if anyone has made any N Scale (or any and all other scales) Repaints of either the 101 or the 102 B 23-7 locomotives, or the Former Juanita Valley 7750 GP-38. Pictures related, I took them while rail fanning.

    Interesting prototype. Lots of colors to model with the as is aberdeen units there.

    #101 is an interesting loco. I'm no diesel expert so can't say what it is.

    Even though I do N scale, a railroad with only a couple units might be fun to model in larger scale for more detail.

    I bet it isn't available as a pre-painted model, but it isn't hard to do a "Dip-job" like that. All you really need to do is see if decals are available for it.

    Growing up south of Boston myself I love Fore River (Riva!). Good choice of prototype.
