Brooklyn Terminal, June 4

In thinking about which way to go with the BT locomotive paint scheme, I decided to do a Google search on steam switchers. In looking through the images, I decided to follow the L&N approach, understated, simple, old school, no logo. There’s still a lot to do on the model but at least I have the factory lettering off, the paint dulled down, and a coal load in the tender. Images like this illustrate that, while it’s a little bit of a pain, code 40 really helps the look if you’re going to be doing close up photography.
