14529RE: [FJGRailroad] Alco Switcher - FJ&G Paint?
- May 3, 2010
When the CACV acquired the S-4 and S-7 from Canada, even before they arrived on the property I talked to Bruce from the LRHS and asked the same thing Aaron. His answer was, buy the paint and paint it FJ&G.
I didn't think anyone else would have been interested in chipping in.
I thought the CMRR had their own paint scheme. I figured they'd paint it up like the RS1 they have in Kingston...
No offense taken, I'm used to being thrown under the bus; although for sake of argument I'd rather be thrown under the train. This is a railroad list, isn't it?
More than ten years ago I floated the idea of painting one of the CACV engines into FJ&G colors, but the LRHS already had paint on hand from the D&H shops in Oneonta.
I don't disagree with the argument that pure NYC colors would be a more historically-accurate look. However, one of these days I hope to see my dream fulfilled of chasing a switcher painted in cream, orange, and black.
