Would you believe that I just received RF&P legacy Berkshire today! It was late because I purchased it thru my regional hobby store instead of Charles Ro...… It also needed the front pilot replaced which caused a delay. When I opened it ...….2 parts were laying in the bottom. A pilot bearing and a green board. The bearing was pressed back in and snapped tight After a little research on the green board …...it was glued on the front of the engine. Note...…. the RF&P is the only Berkshire with the green board. I can say that legacy Berk is a very nice engine......

A couple of pictures would be really nice!!
Thank you, really nice! The engine and consist make a nice presentation. The Land-o-Lakes boxcar caught my eye, do you have more info to share on that?
The Land of lakes car was completed yesterday, I googled land of lakes and then pressed IMAGES and copyed and pasted to word. I bought the testers Decal paper (clear and white) ,,,,,Resized each image to fit, Laid out each image on a page in word. printed and sealed with tester decal bonder, You can order online or go to a good craft store like Hobby Lobby, (typed up things like WT, 0000000 and such.) For some reason yellow did not work at all for me. Car colors are my Idea,,,,,,,I wanted the Indian maiden image more than anything
These are the first photos I have seen for this paint scheme. It's the one I ordered when first annouced (then Lionel canceled a few years ago). Thanks for posting. Is the smokebox really a light gray, non-metallic? Or did the flash brighten it? Would love to see a pedestrian height full side view in natural light. Art
