Modeling an N&W (or NS) High Hood SD40-2

Step 025 - The Final Chapter

The unit has been completely weathered to represent one of N&W's finest locomotives as it would have appeared in the middle eighties as a coal hauler for one of the largest coal hauling railroads in the entire country.  I've done what I can to make the model look used and not overly abused by applying the colors of weathering that would be found on a unit such as this while in coal service. I love black locomotives and the way they look when weathered and even a black unit that's not so well done can still draw an extra look or two when weathering and distressing has been applied.
