I decided to change from white lettering to silver lettering on the CPEN. The new silver lettering will look a lot better with the silver undrebody. Here are the first two to get the new look. These former Conrail units will retain their CR numbers while under the ownership of the Central Penn. Stay tuned because there's plenty more on the way.

Here is a pic of the first loco to get the phase 5 scheme. This was also the first six axle loco the CPEN purchased. (former CSX unit)

Bob,

Some really nice looking engines. I was wondering if the cab stayed in its original color on #9240 as there appears to be a shade varience with the hood and box. It's not enought to make that much difference. Also, your weathering on the '9' is very realistic.

Here is another NW2 that I just finished up. This one was acquired from the "Ebay Locomotive Group". (ELG) This loco only cost the CPEN $42.95. The loco was mostly assembled, but had a few missing parts. ( You can go to the KATO site and purchase a NW2 shell, plus all of the hand railings etc., for around $10. It's good to have some extra parts around.) Anyway, this NW2 was a former SP unit # 1312, now it lives as CPEN # 1312.

I had some problems while decaling. I ended up having have to strip the cab and repaint it. Under normal lighting conditions the color difference doesn't show up as much. The really weird part is, that it's the same color red, but from a different bottle. This is not the first time that I have had variances in the Badger paints. I'm probably going to switch back to Polly Scale paints soon. I have had excellent results with Polly S before. You see, I was looking to save a few bucks, so I switched to the Badger stuff. My bad

Bob, these are some great looking locos. As always, you've done a very nice job with painting, detailing, and weathering. And as always when I see your photos, I'm almost tempted to switch to the diesel era.

Thanks for the photos.

Bob, That is great paintwork. I take it that the CPEN is your roadname? As I am not familiar with the region you are modelling I could appreciate it more if you could give me a brief overview. I like the subtle weathering on 9015.

Thanks for all the great comments.

The Central Pennsylvania, also known as the Central Penn (CPEN), is a freelanced regional railroad I created. I created this railroad so I could run some of the older types of locos out there, that would not fit in with the CONRAIL era that I model. I primarly model CONRAIL CSX and Norfolk Southern, prior to the merger. The Central Penn has grown so big here lately that It seems to have taken over the layout.
