    You certainly do see a good variety of paint jobs on CSX trackage :D

    Best looking fo me is the FURX, followed by the GATX blue.

    Don't like the red-striped UP one - looks very garish [​IMG]

    Harold,
    The 7149 is one of my favorites too. Maybe I'll get around to doing an N scale version in 2006.

    I am also going to have to get out some more leaser photos so I can catch up with you. :D

    Plenty of leasers out there on CSX.... I have noticed that most of the grain trains have almost solid consists of leasers...

    I assume HELM has contracted CSX to repaint their locomotives? Ive seen several roll through Huntington shops with a fresh coat of paint.....is that the new CSX blue (from the new dark future scheme) they use on their units?

    I had heard that CSX was doing repaints with CSX blue for HELM... can't verify or deny. (It sure looks like something CSX would paint [​IMG] )

    My new issue of Diesel Era magazine shows a HELM unit in the 6100 class (ex-tunnel motors) that is painted in the same new HELM scheme, except Red with white stripes and lettering. Who is painting them, Canadian Pacific? [​IMG]

    I guess the red line was faster than painting out the name :D
