Norfolk and Western NW Diesels - Set #109

This set is for Norfolk and Western's vast fleet of black NW painted diesels. This set includes 42"  heralds for road diesels, 24" heralds for smaller switchers and slugs, and 12" nose heralds. "Cut to length" stripes are also included to go under the unit number of locomotives equipped with swivel butt couplers.

Locomotives with swivel butt couplers have no coupler alignment control and are prone to derailments when the couplers buckle between diesels during pushing moves. These locomotives were not allowed to be coupled together unless a locomotive with alignment control was placed between them.

This set is available in HO, O and N scale. Each set will letter several locomotives. Number boards and data are not included.

Norfolk and Western NW Diesels  - Tuscan Red - Set #110

This set is for Norfolk and Western's tuscan red SD40-2 and C30-7 locomotives with dulux gold NW heralds. In 1978 N&W received EMD SD40-2 #6175 and GE C30-7 # 8010 in tuscan red paint and dulux gold lettering. In 1979, five more tuscan red GE C30-7's joined the roster. There locomotives were numbered 8076, 8077, 8078, 8079 and 8080. Curiously, the last two locomotives of that order, 8081 and 8082, were delivered in black. These tuscan red locomotives could still be found plying Norfolk Southern rails as late as 1990. EMD SD40-2 #6175 still serves Norfolk Southern and has been converted to radio control.

Each set will letter several locomotives and includes road numbers for all of these units. Number boards and data are not included. Available in HO and N scale.

Norfolk and Western Bicentennial 1776 - Set #119

As a tribute to the United States 200th birthday, Norfolk and Western painted four pieces of equipment in a Bicentennial scheme. In 1974 EMD SD-45 number 1776, along with a coal hopper, trailer and a caboose were painted red, white, and blue. The special paint job was designed and painted on the locomotive in Roanoke, Virginia. The caboose was painted in Decater, IL.

When the locomotive came up for it's next painting it was returned to the standard black and white scheme which it wore until it was retired. She was stored unserviceable for many years and was donated to the Virginia Museum of Transportation. The locomotive has been repainted in 2012 by Norfolk Southern and is now one of the center pieces at the Virginia Museum of Transportation.

These sets has been totally redesigned and includes lettering and data for all four pieces. Available Now!
