    Norfolk Southern just announced a new "Heritage" locomotive. An SD60E, #6920 has been painted in a special red, white & blue, with a yellow ribbon, scheme, and the words "Honoring Our Veterans". The new locomotive, which will be put into general freight service will have it's official unveiling at the NS Shops In Altoona, Pa. on Thurs Nov 8.

    mmm, how soon can we get these on the hobbyshop shelf?

    Yeah, I have several family members that are Veterans, would love to have one of these sitting on the layout when they came by.

    I would want to detail and paint my own. Too bad Microscale probably wont do the decals for it.
