Merger ???

I picked up two undecorated Blue Box Athearn GP-35s and one undecorated Athearn Blue Box SD40-2 about six months ago. The plan was to paint them for the Penn Central as I am a major fan of this railroad along with the New York Central. The Penn Central was the railroad of my youth that captures the grime and decay of 1970s New York City. Using Microscale decals set #87-84 and some research on fallen flags I present the following units;

 GP35 #2252 with the red "P", GP35 #2327 and SD40 # 6282

 Close up of SD40 # 6282
 Close up of GP35 #2327
 Close up of GP35 #2252

 All three units were hardwired. The SD40 had all axle gears replaced, GP35#2327 had the front two axle gears replaced. All units have accurate road numbers and GP35 #2252 did carry the red "P" according to Microscale.
