Curious to see if there is any interest in  ALCo's last bastion of high hp. Loco's the ALCo C636 and the C430?

Although low in production numbers, one did see C636 in a variety of paint schemes:

Demo, SP&S, BN, MK, IC, PC, CR, CN, Cartier, NYS&W [patch job] DL&W, others?

As well as the C430 :

NYC, SCL, L&N, RDG, CR, ME, NYS&W,  WNYP, GBW,

Thoughts for one in O gauge, O scale?

How about one in modern Delaware Lackawanna (GVT) colors?  Its not my era, but the DL has a large Alco following. Heck, I might even buy one for fun.  BTW neither DL&W nor the Erie  owned any C636s, but Weaver did produce one in EL paint and I have one that I upgraded with ERR. It is a good runner and pull like a mule.  I have its Dereco sister in D&H paint awaiting an upgrade as well.  These engines were a steal back in the 90s.
