Scale Guide


CSX and NS began receiving ES40DC units in primer grey paint with their respective numbers and owner reporting marks stenciled under the cab to fulfill a brief power shortage. Yet some units simply didn’t receive their final paintwork until long after their assembly primarily due to increasing back orders at GE’s Erie facility.
