Atlas BNSF Dash 8

The blue bearing caps are an ASF Brenco bearing thing, rather than a Trinity thing.  It started when they went to the Class K bearings.  From what I've read, it's sort of a "marketing" thing.  Although it's hard for me to imagine that the prevalence of ASF trucks on many or even most recently built freight cars would be news to the railroads.

I was generally pretty pleased with mine. There was one spot with a little orange where the should be yellow but weathering will take care of that. It's no brass model, but with a $350 price tag I think it beats a $500 MTH or Lionel engine. I'll probably buy a 2 rail DC version for a non powered unit to go with it. I also plan to 3 Rail Scale this one.
