my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific SD40R
When it was first painted the paint separation between the orange and gray was actually down the center of the roof as above. This model appeared on eBay and generated a lot of discussion as to its accuracy. It is accurate and was not liked by Management, so was sent back to be repainted as the Tom Fassett model shown below with the gray roof on both sides. Anecdotally, it did operate in the above scheme before being repainted - again, hopefully photos may appear.
