"Southern Belle" paint scheme

Postby tj48 » Thu Feb 25, 2010 9:56 am

A Question. Will the SD70ace units be the only ones to get the "Belle" paint scheme http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPi ... id=1926899 or will more road units (other than the business train) eventually be painted as well?

They are slapping that paint scheme on everything! I've seen the new Goats and a few GP's sporting it. The funny thing is that they are using the "passenger" version of the Southern Belle scheme on freight equipment. There actually was a freight version, called "the blonde". The passenger scheme was the "red-head".
See! That there's yer problem!
