Wondering how long CN will leave the IC SD70's in the "death star" paint scheme? They make a natural good looking heritage unit, although most could use a good bath these days from the pics I see. They do seem to stay together as well with many double or tripple headed consists, but not always. Post up your death star pics! I just picked up an Overland Models brass one at the Urbana IL show a couple weeks ago. Mike

A few are already painted in the CN uniform so I guess the answer is whenever CN wants to paint them.
