Today, I decalled up the Peoria & Eastern GP7 #5628. I've only found a few photos online, but it appears the P&E simply took Penn Central GP7s and added their logo where they saw fit. I like the arrangement on this one. For the second one, I'll mix it up a bit.
Tru-Color TCP-010 Black
Microscale 60-1098 - Penn Central Non-Standard Boxcar Lettering (for Peoria & Eastern)
Microscale 60-84 - Penn Central Diesels (1968-1976)
I'm so glad I decided to try custom painting. I might not be the best at it yet, but working hard to figure it out. I really love having some custom pieces nobody else has. :-)
I was planning on painting the second P&E GP7 this weekend, but noticed the one I purchased off eBay didn't match the description. Waiting on the replacement now. This weekend, I plan on working on some other projects though.
- Four CPC International Tank Cars
- Repair of one CPC International Tank Car (fix paint line)
- Atlas P&PU S2.
- Possible TP&W C424s.

Well, after being knocked completely on my butt by a sinus cold/flu type deal for five days, I finally got out to paint the Atlas GP7 shell tonight. I painted using Tru-Color Black and added a gloss coat. It is now ready for decals.
