    Well, answer is yes from what I can read in the responses above. Fair enough then.

    Though for myself, I like to stay as close as possible to the prototype, "as close" meaning plausible. I have one Athearn F59PHI in GO Transit livery which does not exist in reality, but this was proposed as substitute to GOT MP40PH-3C for which no N-scale RTR model exist to my knowledge. True to stay that the two locomotives have more or less the same shape, despite F59PHI being much shorter. I have to admit that sticking to reality for F59PHI would mean very few roadnames, with so many others left apart because they have similar but not very same engines.

    Atlas is even making a fantasy SP SD24, the demo SD24's were painted like an SP loco, had SP lights, but no lettering.

    Atlas is also making FM Trainmaster in Chicago & Northwestern, Milwaukee, & New Haven. C&NW MILW units were H-16-66. NH had no 6 axle locomotives. I will pass on these. Will purchase Atlas's NE5 caboose in Chicago Great Western. Will go good with Kato RS-2.
