Models of the LNE FAs?

Post by Snowmojoe » Sat Nov 01, 2014 5:25 pm

Was there ever any company that made ALCO FAs in L&NE paint? I've seen LNE rolling stock and maybe an occasional steam loco, but never any FAs. The only ones I've seen have been custom paint jobs. Too much of a niche thing for mass production, I guess?

Life-Like also did them in N Scale. I have an ABBA set. They'll pull the paint off a wall.

Walthers made decals for HO L&NE FAs. I made a nice one without much trouble. But that was probably 30 years ago so have no idea if the decals are still available.
