IMHO, best one yet. This is the one I have most eagerly awaited since the announcement of the program. The VGN had a relatively modern looking scheme for its time.

I always thought the band around the center was dark blue ....... but maybe that's just a flashback from the Lionel Trainmaster I was so used to seeing as a kid .....

Wow could you imagine a pair of those on a tidewater coal train rolling through Virginia country side! Or on the Christianburg district!

Don't want to nit pick, but Virginian locomotives never carried cab numbers until after the merger with Norfolk & Western. There may be no way around having hem under FRA regulations. Otherwise, the unit looks great.

After the Heritage get-together, pose it at the VGN bridge & tunnel at Garwood/Covel. Great Looking motor! === === = === JLH
